Will Smith is a charming dude, and he knows it. And Sony Pictures knows it, making Smith the central star of the Bad Boys For Life gag reel that it just dropped to celebrate the action-comedy’s release on digital platforms. Watch the Bad Boys For Life gag reel below.Bad Boys For Life Gag Reel
Bad boys, bad boys, what you gonna do? What you gonna do when Will Smith breaks? Laugh along, because you’ll make it into the gag reel. The Bad Boys For Life gag reel shows the stars of the long-awaited and surprisingly well-reviewed Bad Boys sequel fooling around on set.
Martin Lawrence, Joe Pantoliano, and the new youngsters Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, and Charles Melton are all having a pretty breezy time on the set of the film directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. But none is having more fun than Will Smith, who has always had the ability to light up the room with his antics in front of and behind the camera. It makes me wish a little to see Smith in a comedy again, playing at his slapstick talents in a romantic-comedy. Maybe a rom-com like Hitch. Okay, I just want a Hitch sequel.
Bad Boys For Life is now available for purchase on Digital. It hits Blu-ray and physical home video releases on April 21, 2020.
The wife and son of a Mexican drug lord embark on a vengeful quest to kill all those involved in his trial and imprisonment - including Miami Detective Mike Lowrey. When Mike gets wounded, he teams up with partner Marcus Burnett and AMMO - a special tactical squad - to bring the culprits to justice. But the old-school, wisecracking cops must soon learn to get along with their new elite counterparts if they are to take down the vicious cartel that threatens their lives.Source: Slashfilm.com
If we weren’t in the darkest timeline right now, Marvel’s Black Widow would be arriving in theaters in a little under a month. Unfortunately, the globe is dealing with a dangerous pandemic, and the entire movie release calendar is being shuffled around every week as studios push back some of the biggest movies of the year following the closure of pretty much all movie theaters everywhere. Last week, Marvel Studios announced a new November release date for the movie starring Scarlett Johansson, and now a couple of new Black Widow photos have been released.New Black Widow Photos
First up, we have Scarlett Johansson being cautious as other agents from the Red Room Academy are in pursuit. They’re decked out in the standard tactical catsuit while Natasha Romanoff appears to be caught off guard, wearing only her street clothes.
As the most recent trailer for Black Widow explained, the Red Room operatives are being controlled by the villain Taskmaster, who has manipulated them by somehow giving them full consciousness, but unable to make choices of their own free will.
Romanoff’s surrogate sister and fellow Red Room agent Yelena Belova Florence Pugh, above somehow escaped, and she’s getting their makeshift family back together, including David Harbour as Alexei Shostakov AKA Red Guardian and Rachel Weisz as Melina Vostokoff.
Together, they’ll try to take down Taskmaster, who is quite the formidable opponent due to the fact that he can mimic the fighting styles of the rest of The Avengers, such as Black Panther, Captain America and Spider-Man, not to mention Black Widow herself. Oh, and his identity is unknown too, so that’s fun.
Will any of them besides Natasha make it out alive? Let’s not forget that she said The Avengers were the only family she has left throughout the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. Plus, she recently offered up this perspective in an interview with Total Film via sister site Games Radar:
“I think part of Kevin Feige’s genius is that he always thinks about what fans expect out of these films and then gives them something that they never could’ve dreamed of. The idea of Natasha Romanoff in a family drama is the least expected thing, and I had to wrap my head around what that was going to be because there’s such a big tonal shift.”
Directed by Cate Shortland and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s Black Widow now hits theaters on November 6, 2020 after being delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. The entire Marvel Studios release schedule has been shifted due to the new release date, and you can get the full new release calendar right here.

When he needed to be, Adam Schlesinger was one of the most talented chameleons in the musical world. Whether as the lead singer of the band that would eventually achieve global notoriety or through his more translucent contributions to the soundtracks of beloved TV series and films, he had a knack for being able to deliver the precise feeling or atmosphere from whatever genre you could name.
It was how Schlesinger filled in those gaps with his own particular wit and care that made him not just an invaluable musician or songwriter, but an evocative storyteller. He died on Tuesday at the age of 52, leaving behind a legacy across TV, film, and music for which he was rarely the face, but so often the heart.
It's telling that the numerous tributes that have poured out since the reveal of his COVID-19 diagnosis early this week and reports of his passing lead with different achievements. Chronologically, Schlesinger began the path to acclaim as part of Fountains of Wayne, which he formed with college friend and lead singer Chris Collingwood.
The band's 2003 “Welcome Interstate Managers” birthed the enduring pop hit “Stacy's Mom,” the song that would eventually propel Fountains of Wayne onto jukeboxes and a cappella arrangements and trivia answer sheets the world over. But take, instead, “All Kinds of Time,” the song that pops up four tracks later on the album.
Simple and sparse, it's a hazy ballad centered on a star football player reaching a state of unexpected calm late in a big game. Nested in this ode to poise under pressure comes a bridge that, on its surface, seems like a straightforward list.
“He thinks of his motherHe thinks of his bride-to-beHe thinks of his fatherHis two younger brothersGathered around the widescreen TV”
Aside from the fact that the only football signifiers in the song are words “quarterback” and “snap” in the song's opening lines, look at what Schlesinger's able to do in the span of 25 seconds. There’s more than enough there in that single snapshot of a far-off living room to plot out your own version of this one guy’s entire life story. You could listen to this song for years and never really track that “bride-to-be” detail. There's the success on the field “The whole world is his tonight”, but even in the cosmic expanse that Collingwood's airy and spacelike outro vocals suggest, this is still someone who can't help but think of his impending marriage, too.
Schlesinger could throw in plenty more detail when he wanted to, drenching perky love songs with as much revealing assonance as he could muster. “Hey Julie” has the narrator “running ’round the office” for a “mean little...
We have charts from five VOD and streaming platforms; they don’t use the same metrics, and are not independently verified. However, FandangoNOW leads the herd in its decision to list by the nearest equivalent of “grosses” — that is, the number of transactions times the cost. With the majority of releases at $19.99, it gives a better view of comparative performance.
Across the board at FandangoNOW, iTunes, and Amazon Prime, “Sonic the Hedgehog” Paramount and “Bad Boys for Life” Sony —the two top theatrical releases of 2020 — are thriving. Spectrum Cable’s weekly chart, which appears to be a little slower to pick up trends, doesn’t yet show those two films at all. However, like FandangoNOW, it does reflect the presence of the faith-based terminal illness romance “I Still Believe” Lionsgate, the other significant new release over the past week.
Other new titles like STX’s “Brahms: The Boy II” available at a lower price of $9.99 and the year’s best-reviewed new film “Never Rarely Sometimes Always” Focus, which was released Friday — are so far sight unseen.
To judge by platforms that rank by transactions, lower prices do help. We also list Netflix, which is based on the streamer’s ranking of viewings. It presents perhaps the most curious test of what interests the public and what the future of movies and other forms of recorded entertainment looks like.
We will cover this in far more detail midweek as well as look at winners and losers so far and possible trends and changes to come.FandangoNOW
