Sony Pictures set the “Bad Boys for Life” digital release date on Monday morning. The movie will release on digital on March 31st, followed by the 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD versions on April 21st. The film is getting an early digital release as theaters remain closed around the world. “Bad Boys for Life” joins the other recent release being rushed to digital and on-demand platforms, a list that includes “Sonic the Hedgehog,” “Onward,” “Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker,” “Trolls World Tour,” “Birds of Prey,” “The Way Back,” “I Still Believe,” and “Frozen 2.”
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence returned to the franchise for the new installment. The film also features Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Paola Nuñez, Kate del Castillo, Nicky Jam and Joe Pantoliano.
The description reads, “After a string of assassinations and an attempt on Mike’s life, he convinces a hesitant Marcus to hold off retirement and partner one last time. Together, they team up with AMMO, the new hotshot division of the Miami PD, to take down the merciless head of the Aretas Cartel.”
“Bad Boys for Life” did very well in theaters. The movie had a $62M opening weekend back in January and went on to make over $419M worldwide for the studio. The first “Bad Boys” film hit theaters back in 1995 and made $15.5M on its opening weekend.
