A new “Bad Boys For Life” trailer hit the internet on Tuesday morning, reminding fans to clear their schedule for the January release date. Sony Pictures released the second trailer on social media, and the movie is scheduled to release in theaters on January 17th.
The new installment follows Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) as they take one last ride together and deal with their aging police methods. The movie also stars Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, and Charles Melton, along with Paola Nunez, Kate Del Castillo, and Nicky Jam. The new trio of actors joining the franchise will play a group of specialized police officers, and play the younger and tech-savvy group that will have to work with Smith and Lawrence’s characters, who are both considered to be old relics of the police force.
Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah directed the new installment for Sony Pictures, working from a screenplay by Joe Carnahan and Chris Bremner. Jerry Bruckheimer and Will Smith produced the movie, with Doug Belgrad, Barry Waldman, Chad Oman, and Mike Stenson serving as executive producers.
Looking back on the franchise, the first “Bad Boys” film hit theaters back in 1995 and made $15.5M on its opening weekend. The original film went on to make over $141M worldwide for Sony Pictures, but a sequel wasn’t made for another four years. The duo returned to the screen in 2003 for “Bad Boys 2,” and that film had a $45M opening and went on to make over $273M worldwide.
The January 17th release date has “Bad Boys for Life” opening against Robert Downey, Jr’s “Dolittle” and the war drama “The Last Full Measure” with Samuel L. Jackson, Bradley Whitford, Sebastian Stan, and Jeremy Irvine. The movie is also sandwiched between two busy box office weekends, with “The Informer,” “Like a Boss,” “My Spy,” and Kristen Stewart’s “Underwater” opening the weekend before, and “The Gentlemen,” “Run,” and “The Turning” opening the following week.
