Bad Boys for Life earned an estimated $68.1 million over the four-day Martin Luther King Jr. weekend. According to The Hollywood Reporter, that makes it the second-best showing ever for that holiday period.
Seventeen years on from the last Bad Boys installment, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are back together, and it looks as though they’ve maintained their popularity, both at home and overseas.
Bad Boys for Life brought in $38.6 million overseas, and $59 million at the domestic box office during its first three days. Variety reports that the film is expected to cross the $100 million mark globally this weekend.
And it’s not just proving popular at the box office: The threequel received surprisingly glowing reviews from critics and is being praised for delivering a fun, nostalgic treat.
