#OnTheBigScreen: 'Bill & Ted Face The Music', 'After We Collided' and 'Trolls World Tour'

Bill & Ted Face The Music, the Trolls go on a world tour and Hardin Scott and Tessa Young return in After We Collided open at SA cinemas this weekend.

Bill & Ted Face The Music

At least 29 years after Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, the first sequel to Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, the creators bring Bill and Ted’s epic, emotional, decidedly non-heinous final chapter to life in Bill & Ted Face The Music.

The stakes are higher than ever for the time-travelling exploits of William ‘Bill’ S Preston Esq. (Alex Winter) and Theodore ‘Ted’ Logan (Keanu Reeves). The now middle-aged best friends set out on a new adventure to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe, with the helped by their daughters (played by Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine), a new batch of historical figures and a few music legends.

Bill & Ted Face The Music is a movie about the importance of unity, the power of friendship and what you can achieve when faced with insurmountable odds. Which is ironic because that’s exactly what the three-decade quest to get it made has been about, too.

While Hardin falls into some bad habits, Tessa, armed with new confidence, lands the internship of her dreams at Vance Publishing Company. While at Vance, she also grabs the attention of her handsome new co-worker Trevor (Dylan Sprouse), who is exactly the kind of guy she should be with. He is smart, funny, handsome and responsible, however, Tessa cannot get Hardin out of her head. He is, after all, the love of her life. Even with all their misunderstandings and hardships, Tessa can’t deny the pull she feels towards Hardin. She wishes she could walk away, it’s just not that easy.

Trolls World Tour

A computer-animated jukebox musical film.

In an adventure that will take them well beyond what they’ve known before, Poppy (Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Justin Timberlake) discover that they are but one of six different Trolls tribes scattered over six different lands and devoted to six different kinds of music: Funk, Country, Techno, Classical, Pop and Rock. Their world is about to get a lot bigger and a whole lot louder.

The film is a sequel to the 2016 film Trolls, directed by Walt Dohrn with co-direction by David P Smith, produced by Gina Shay, and written by Jonathan Aibel, Glenn Berger, Elizabeth Tippet, Maya Forbes and Wallace Wolodarsky, from a story by Aibel and Berger.
