Will Smith, Martin Lawrence Reunite


Sony Pictures has just released the trailer for “Bad Boys 4,” starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. The film’s official title is “Bad Boys: Ride or Die.”

This is the fourth film in the popular action-comedy franchise that debuted in 1995, when Smith and Lawrence first teamed up as Miami PD detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett, who investigate illegal drug trading in Miami.

While the first two films were directed by Michael Bay, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah directed “Bad Boys for Life” and are returning for this latest installment of the “Bad Boys” franchise. Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Paola Núñez, Eric Dane, Ioan Gruffudd, Jacob Scipio, Melanie Liburd, Tasha Smith, Rhea Seehorn and Joe Pantoliano also star.

Sony also revealed that Tiffany Haddish has joined the cast of the film in an undisclosed role. Haddish has been close with the Smith family after co-starring with Will Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith in the 2017 hit “Girls Trip.”

As for this franchise, seventeen years separated the releases of “Bad Boys II” in 2003 and “Bad Boys for Life” in 2020, the latter of which came out in theaters just before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down exhibition and earned $426.5 million at the worldwide box office.

In January, Smith and Lawrence announced the fourth installment on social media by sharing a reunion video with the caption, “IT’S ABOUT THAT TIME!”

In “Bad Boys for Life,” Mike was on the hit list of a young man, Armando (Jacob Scipio), whose mother Isabel (Kate del Castillo) tasked him with murdering those responsible for the death of his father, a drug king pin. The third film leaves viewers with the revelation that Armando is actually Mike’s son, and a credits scene hints at father and son potentially working together in some capacity.

“Bad Boys 4” is set to be released in theaters June 7. Watch the trailer below.
