Bad Boys For Life: Trailer Drop, Release Date And Cast Revealed
It's been 17 long years since Bad Boys II was released, which means that a lot of our readers won't have a clue what we're talking about.
If you were old enough to enjoy Will Smith and Martin Laurence chasing down some KKK members and the former shooting his partner in the butt, then you'll be happy to know that the third installment - Bad Boys For Life - is well on its way.
This time, detectives Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) will be reuniting to take down a drug cartel in Atlanta. Here's all you need to know about Bad Boys For Life.
When's it coming out?
Bad Boys For Life will be hitting the cinemas in the US on 17 January 2020 and will come to the UK a week later on 24 January 2020.
When's the trailer coming out?
According to trailer-track.com, the first trailer for Bad Boys For Life has already been rated by the UK's BBFC, so it should arrive sometime within the next two weeks. September 3 is the date swirling around between online film geeks.
Who's in Bad Boys For Life?
Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are set up to play the slightly older detectives Burnett and Lowrey. Joe Pantaliano also returns as Captain Howard. Alongside the veterans of the franchise are Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig and Charles Melton, Jacob Scipio, Paola Nuñez and, weirdly enough, DJ Khaled.
Khaled will be playing the part of Manny the Butcher, who gets his finger chopped off. Maybe it's because he refuses to have oral sex with women.
What's the film about?
At the time of writing, a synopsis hasn't been released. However, we'll see the Bad Boys taking on a new threat while clashing with members of a modern specialised police unit in Miami.
What were the original Bad Boys films about?
The first Bad Boys film was released in 1995 and followed lifelong pals, Burnett and Lowrey attempt to protect a witness to a murder while investigating the theft of heroin from their own precinct in Miami.
Bad Boys II came out a whole 8 years later in 2003 and watched the pair attempt to stop MDMA from getting into Miami. The pair contemplate calling their partnership quits as we find out that Lowrey has been dating Burnett's sister. Obviously, the pair kiss and make up, because it's Hollywood after all, and bad boys are for life.
