‘Bill & Ted’ Makes Excellent Debut on Vudu and FandangoNow Charts

Bill & Ted Face the Music topped both the FandangoNow and Vudu charts for the week ended Aug. 30.

Both are transactional video-on-demand services owned by Fandango.

Bill & Ted Face the Music, the third installment in the “Bill & Ted” series, debuted via premium VOD rental and purchase Aug. 28. 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. Along the way, they will be helped by their daughters, a new batch of historical figures, and a few music legends to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe. Meanwhile, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989) and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991) also showed up among the top 40 films streaming on FandangoNow and Vudu, while the three-pack “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Triple Feature” was the top-selling bundle on both services.

Falling from its three-week perch at No. 1 on both charts, The Tax Collector, starring Bobby Soto and Shia LaBeouf, landed at No. 2 on the Vudu chart and No. 4 on the FandangoNow chart for the week. The Tax Collector, released by RLJ Entertainment through digital retailers Aug. 7, stars LaBeouf and Soto as “tax collectors” working for a Los Angeles crime lord who find their safety threatened by a rival of their boss. The title is available at both digital retailers for rental and purchase.
