The Bad Boys are back

The Bad Boys are back

It might have taken 16 years, but the official trailer for Bad Boys for Life is finally here, with the release date set for next year. After much anticipation Will Smith and the legendary Martin Lawrence reunite for one last ride in the first trailer for the long-awaited third installment in the action-comedy franchise.

They reprise their roles as Miami Police detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett in the sequel to Bad Boys (1995) and Bad Boys II (2003). “We’re not just black, we’re cops too!” Lawrence says in the trailer. “We’ll pull ourselves over later!” This time around, the dynamic duo is joined by a fresh crop of cops played by Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), Alexander Ludwig (Vikings), and Charles Melton (Riverdale) in their quest to take down the ruthless leader of a drug cartel.

Bad Boys for Life will hit the theatres on January 17 next year
