First Trailer for 'Bad Boys For Life' with Will Smith & Martin Lawrence
"One last time?" "One last time." Sony Pictures has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Bad Boys For Life, the long-awaited sequel to the first two Bad Boys movies (from 1995 and 2003). Michael Bay isn't back for this, instead he's handed over the directing duties to Belgian filmmakers Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, with Bruckheimer still producing. Reuniting "bad boys" cops Will Smith and Martin Lawrence once again - Marcus Burnett (Lawrence) is now a police inspector and Mike Lowery (Smith) is in a midlife crisis. They unite again when an Albanian mercenary, whose brother they killed, promises them an important bonus. Also stars Thomas Brag, Paola Núñez, Jacob Scipio, Joe Pantoliano, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Jamie Neumann, Massi Furlan, DJ Khaled, with Vanessa Hudgens. Looks and feels a lot like the second movie - so I guess, if it ain't broken, don't fix it. Not sure if this will be any good without Bay.
Here's the first trailer (+ fan art poster) for Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah's Bad Boys For Life, on YouTube:
Ride together. Die together. Bad Boys For Life. Marcus Burnett (Lawrence) is now a police inspector and Mike Lowrey (Smith) is in a midlife crisis. Both of them unite again when an Albanian mercenary, whose brother they defeated, promises them an important bonus in revenge. Bad Boys For Life is co-directed by Belgian filmmakers Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, director of the movies Image, Black, and Gangsta previously, as well as a few other short films. The screenplay is by Joe Carnahan, David Guggenheim, Chris Bremner, and Anthony Tambakis. Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer & Doug Belgrad. Sony Pictures will open Bad Boys For Life in theaters everywhere starting January 17th, 2020 early next year. How does it look?

This will easily make its money back, but that doesn't mean it'll be good. Case in point: HOBBS AND SHAW. There was a time and a place for these 90's action movies, but now...they're over and this is nothing more than a cash grab for nostalgia sake. Smith and Lawrence gotta pay the rent!

Loved that opening shot. Paying homage to, and poking fun at Bay.

awesome, I can't wait for this! And... He got the Porsche, Mike should always have a Porsche!

Well, I can't say it "looked" horrible, because the the photography was, er, pretty. But everything else was horrible. Vanessa Hudgens can do better. And don't cops know not to park in front of a fire hydrant?

The first one was good while the second one was an obvious disaster. This seems to be in the middle, right between them ...

Not for me. I enjoyed the first one way back when, and they play well off each other, but I remember being bored to tears with the second one and never even finished it. Hopefully its decent, I feel like its been awhile since I've seen a good buddy cop flick.

Looks good to me, but a January release? Just go ahead and release it in March, why don't ya?? It may be a cash grab but they can grab my cash. It should be a laugh a minute in between all the action. I may go see it at my local RPX theater just for the extra POW! RPX = we turn up the volume much louder than the other screens and the screen is a bit bigger too.

"Not sure if this will be any good without Bay." I think specifically BECAUSE of that there's hope it will be better. At least better than the 2nd one. But then that's a pretty low bar. The first one was fun but what a mind-numbing dumbfest the second one was. No real desire to see this new one yet.

There are not enough wild horses, even just horses, in this whole wide world that one could hook me up to and drag me to see this trite nonsense! Good to see my old friend Joey Pants is still working and 'doing his thing' like he's been doing for years...lol...

I love Joey Pants! He's the only reason I would see this.

Yea, Joey is a great guy, but not sure he's enough to warrant watching this thing. Besides, he essentially did the same character in the much, much better Midnight Run with DeNiro.

I tell myself this very thing in nearly every movie Joey is in. And I still watch that movie because Joe Pantoliano is a treasure.
Akirakorn on Sep 5, 2019
He bought me dinner a few months ago. Now that's a lot more fun...lol...I shall refrain from telling him someone, anyone, thinks he's a treasure as the rest of us would never hear the end of that!

okay, I gotta ask... what's with you and those horses? Why do they have to drag you? Maybe you are hanging out with the wrong horses. Maybe you should find nice horses that will take you to Dave & Busters for an okay dinner and some 15-year old arcade games first, and then treat you to a movie. Maybe get a watered down vokda redbull. Or three. Maybe forget the horses and get a Shetland Pony, or a camel. Maybe a small elephant. Just no Llamas. Llamas are dicks. Anyway I hope find inner peace, WOOO-SAAAH and all that, not go see BB3:BBFL (I won't either), and avoid horses in general. I'm gonna go get another girl drink n play some Skee Ball.

I wouldn't make such a big deal out of the horses bit. I stole it from the Stones song, Wild Horses. It works for me...lol...and I'll pass on all your suggestions for dinner and games and some inane movie and since I've been sober for 34 yrs. now, will, with no trouble at all, pass on the vodka red bull thing also. I'm fine with the horses, thank you very much..even though they have never managed to drag me anywhere...least of all some silly movie not worth seeing. Cheers!
