Y’all, it’s finally happening! The Will Smith and Martin Lawrence duo are coming back to give us Bad Boys For Life which will be the latest movie in the series franchise. Ever since the first Bad Boys dropped in 1995, and after the sequel in 2003, we’ve all been waiting for more action and laughs from the two comedians. Let’s not talk about the fact that most of us weren’t alive that long or at all when those came out, but these movies are classics! There’s no doubt that they’ll deliver another hilarious action movie that we can enjoy.
In the new movie, Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) is living life as a police detective while Mike Lowry (Will Smith) is going through a tough midlife crisis. The two join together again when an Albanian mercenary offers them a bonus for avenging his dead brother. Of course, there are going to be plenty of explosions and fights, but the comedy is what really steals the show. We all remember their memorable catch phrases. And let’s not forget about that insanely funny scene where they scare the Reggie character with a gun and a bunch of lies when he shows up for a date with Marcus’ daughter. By the looks of the trailer, this is something we should still expect from Bad Boys For Life even though it’s almost 20 years later. They still have that “down for anything except the BS” attitude that we all love and could never forget.
The movie is dropping on January 17th, so make sure you stay tuned in the new year. For now, you can check out the trailer, but I can already tell this is going to be a good one.
