In the Orion Pictures film, the stakes are higher than ever for the time-traveling William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. (Alex Winter) and Theodore “Ted” Logan (Keanu Reeves). To fulfill their rock and roll destiny, the now middle-aged best friends set out on a new adventure when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it.
The Tax Collector, starring Bobby Soto and Shia LaBeouf, again landed at No. 2 on the Vudu chart, but fell from No. 4 to No. 5 on the FandangoNow chart for the week.
