This is one of the best action comedy series in the industry and Michael Bay’s finest work to date. Over the years, the franchise grossed more than 400 million US dollars. So, why did the team behind the first two movies go silent for almost 15 years now? Production hell is probably the best answer. Thankfully, the official trequel is confirmed. And when is Bad Boys for Life movie release date 2018?
The new chapter will hit the theaters on November 9, 2018, in America and the United Kingdom. The Russians and the Germans will get it a day earlier. Columbia Pictures has been trying to get the lead actors, the original director (Bay) and the producer (Bruckheimer) together for a very long time, and now all the stars have finally aligned.
Not One, But Two Movies In Line
Back in 2008, the legendary director claimed that both Smith and himself were more than happy to work on the third movie. Yet, apparently, they wanted bigger salaries than the producers could afford, and that’s the main reason why we had to wait for so long. The script had been in works for several years, but they seem to be happy with it now.
At first, the movie was supposed to come out in February this year; then, they pushed it back to early 2018. The final date was set recently, and it doesn’t look like they’re going to change it again. By the way, Sony Pictures officially announced that the 4th movie in the franchise is also in the making and will arrive summer 2019. Two films in a row? Sounds pretty awesome!
Going Through Production Hell
The Bad Boys for Life DVD release date is early spring 2019. The good news is that the original cast – Smith and Lawrence – will be back for the new chapter(s). We were concerned that the team would introduce brand-new heroes to the series. After all, it’s been 15 years since the second movie came out, and the fellas are all-grown-up now. But, thankfully, the original gang is back. As far as action/comedy/thrillers go, this is going to be one hell of a chill experience at the theaters.
You’ll be able to “turn off” your brain and enjoy it while sippin’ on your drink and fooling around with your friends. The industry really needs movies like this one today, and that’s probably why Columbia decided to revive the series in 2018. This project had to go through several cancellations, rewrites, and crazy rumors, but now that the Bad Boys for Life official release date in 2018 is set, we believe the wait is finally over. The lead actors look just as great as they did 1, 5 decades ago, and the fans still remember their epic adventures!
