In this article we will dive into everything we know about the movie Bad Boys 3 including release date, cast, storyline and more.
If you haven't been residing under a rock for the past two decades, then there’s no way you aren’t aware of the Bad Boy movies. The first part was released back in 1995 and met with a lot of good reviews by the general public and critics alike. The second installation in the series (Bad Boys 2) was opened to equal status of fame, if not more. The movies did so well at the box office that they earned up to $622 million all over the world. Their profit was a lot higher than the original budget for the movie and that fact combined with the opinion of the fans made the possibility of another sequel all the more probable.
Now, two decades later, the wait is finally over, and the third part is set to be released next year. If you’re a fan of the previous movies, then you’re in for a treat. If not, then you better catch up with the rest before the movie releases! Because it is going to be one hell of a ride!
So here's all that you have to know.
In the beginning, a lot of problems came up in regards to getting the production of the movie started, and the idea of a third film was put off for a time despite the constant trying of the cast members, the crew and even the fans!
Martin Lawrence made a statement in 2017, where he said that the movie being made was questionable. However, here we are more than two years later, and despite every problem they had to face for this to become a reality, the movie is coming to us in 2020.
For a long time, the hotly anticipated film was set to be released in the second month of 2017.
Even the main actor of the film himself, Will Smith in 2015 stated that the movie would probably be released very soon. Even though it took longer than he said, I guess we can forgive him since it’s finally been confirmed.
So, when is the movie coming out?
At first, it was rumored that the movie would hit theatres in November of 2018, but that turned out to be untrue. The actual release date of the film is on January 17, 2020. What’s more is that this information has been confirmed by Sony directly, so we have every reason to be this excited!
It is confirmed that Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah are signed to direct the movie and we cannot wait to see the magic they bring to life! According to news, the filming of the film has already begun, and they’re started sharing promotional pictures showing the stars on set and a lot more. Of course, they’re trying to hype up the public, and we got to say, it’s working pretty well!
An amusing fact about the movie: The Lead actors, Will Smith, and Martin Lawrence watched the first two movies together recently, so they could prepare for their roles. Is that cute or what?
Truth be told, the name is a bit cringey, but we’re still here for it. Ready to hear the ever so excellent title? It’s set to be called 'Bad Boys For Life'. Yeah, you heard that right! Cheesy but we’ll go with it!
It goes without saying that Smith and Lawrence will be returning to their roles, as they’ve always been entirely open to the idea of a third film. But who else is returning to the set and who’s new?
Joe Pantoliano has confirmed that he will be returning to his play his Character, Captain Howard.
However, the more exciting news is that Vanessa Hudgens, the sweetheart of the high school musical series is set to star in it as well. Vikings fans will be pleased to hear that Alexander Ludwig has also been signed on.
Charles Melton, a hottie on Riverdale is sure to bring in views from the millennial generation as his role will appeal to teenagers and kids alike. Jacob Scipio will play the actual bad guy aka villain in the movie.
Another surprise for music fans is that DJ Khaled is going to appear in the movie as some (as yet-) unnamed role! Isn't that exciting?
Unfortunately, no trailer has been released as yet since the filming just started, but we’d bet anything that it’s bound to include amazing sequences of car chases and explosions, etc.
There isn’t much information available about the storyline, but the synopsis is pretty much about the old bad boys teaming up with the younger elite squad and taking down a serious threat.
The new team will comprise of roles played by Ludwig, Melton, and Vanessa.
Most probably this would be the elite Ammo unit, whose head is the lovely Rite, Lowrey’s ex-girlfriend. (Played by Nuñez)
Their team is trying to bring down a drug lord (Scipio) who wants to kill Lowrey. Hence they’ll have to come together to make the plan work.
We don’t know about you but that seems pretty enjoyable, and we cannot wait to watch it!
So that's everything we know about the upcoming movie. We're eagerly looking forward to its release and hope the information we've shared with you has got you excited you as well.
