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
Need a quick recap of the past week in movie news? Here are the highlights:
Bad Boys will ride again: It took eight years to get one Bad Boys sequel and another 17 years to get a second. Sony's looking to move a little faster on Bad Boys 4, though, as The Hollywood Reporter has the scoop, appropriately on the release date of Bad Boys for Life, that screenwriter Chris Bremner is already working on a script for the next installment.
Nicolas Cage digs for more National Treasure: Speaking of Chris Bremner, in that same THR article announcing Bad Boys 4, the screenwriter is mentioned as also penning a third installment in Disney's National Treasure franchise. Presumably, Nicolas Cage would return to the lead role for the adventure sequel. The previous two movies were released in 2004 and 2007.
Taika Waititi wanted for Star Wars: Taika Waititi, who just received two Oscar nominations this week for his latest movie, Jojo Rabbit, could direct a Star Wars movie project, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The filmmaker has already been involved in the franchise, having directed an episode of and played a character on the TV series The Mandalorian. In response to the news, Waititi humorously hinted that it's just a rumor.
Oscar Isaac to play a superhero: Star Wars star Oscar Isaac is also in the news this week for being cast in the adaptation of the comic book Ex Machina. No, it doesn't have anything to do with the movie of the same name he's already in. Per The Hollywood Reporter, this movie will be titled The Great Machine and will see Isaac playing a superhero who is elected mayor.
Billie Eilish to perform new Bond title song: Teenage singer/songwriter Billie Eilish has been tapped for the next iconic James Bond title theme, for the upcoming movie No Time to Die. Eilish confirmed the news with an Instagram post. She will co-write the currently untitled tune with her brother, Finneas O'Connell, and perform it for the movie's soundtrack over the credits.
Alexandre Desplat joins the MCU: In other movie music news, two-time Oscar-winning composer Alexandre Desplat, who just received another nomination this week for Little Women, has been hired to score his first Marvel movie: Black Widow. The revelation came in a credit featured in the latest trailer for the Marvel Cinematic Universe installment released this week.
Jon Bernthal joins Williams sisters biopic: Marvel's The Punisher, Jon Bernthal, has been cast in the upcoming tennis biopic King Richard. Deadline reports the actor, currently on the big screen as Lee Iacocca in Ford v Ferrari, will portray Rick Macci, coach to sisters Venus and Serena Williams. The movie is mostly about their father, Richard Williams, who'll be played by Will Smith.
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
