It’s Confirmed! ‘Bad Boys 3’ Is Officially Happening

It has been several years since the last Bad Boys movie came out – 2003 to be exact! Now, 15 years later the 3rd installment of the film has been officially announced.

Today Will Smith took to his Instagram account to enthusiastically announce that, “It’s Official. Bad boys 3 is happening, it’s official.”  You can check out the Instagram post below.

The journey for Bad Boys 3, officially titled Bad Boys for Life, has been extremely rocky up until now.  There have been rumors of this film getting the green light for years; we’d hear progress, then nothing, then progress starting again, and then nothing.  However, back in May, Sony announced that Bad Boys for Life  would finally get a release date of January 17, 2020 but his was only after the film had been pulled from the release date calendar for nearly a year, so many, including myself, were skeptical.

In fact just last year, star of the franchise Martin Lawrence was asked to comment on any progress with the Bad Boys for Life project where he said the following:

I don’t think we’re going to get one, not the way everything’s turning out.  Will is off doing another movie, and I don’t think it’s going to happen.  I’m there, I’m ready right now. If they wanted to do it, I’m ready, but I don’t have control of that. That’s the studio’s decision.”

Thankfully Lawrence was wrong because the pieces seem to be coming together.  The latest script for the film is being penned by Chris Bremner who did The Wedding Ringer and is being directed by Adil El Arbi and Balall Fallah.

Spies in Disguise is helmed by first time directors Nick Bruno and Troy Quane.  Adding their voices alongside Smith is Karen GillanTom Holland, and Rashida Jones.

Aladdin Teaser Trailer!!

Disney has finally released their first look at their live action Aladdin in the form of the biggest teaser trailer ever.  Just yesterday we got our first look at a teaser poster, and many speculated, correctly, that they would drop a teaser trailer toady – which you can see below

The film is set to be remake of the beloved animated feature with original and new songs written by Benji Pasek and Justin Paul who did music for the beloved musical The Greatest Showman.  The film will star Billy Magnussen as Aladdin, Will Smith as the Genie, and Naomi Scott as Jasmin.

While this teaser trailer doesn’t show much in the form of narrative, nor does it show any of the main characters outside of Aladdin himself, it does give just enough to know that this movie just may be that “diamond in the rough.”

Aladdin is set to be released on May 25th, so be prepared for more promotional material in the coming months.

What did you think of this trailer?  Is it  enough to get you excited, or are you still holding out?  Leave a comment below and let me know what you think.  We can make a discussion  out of it.

‘Men in Black’ are back, and the movie already has a Director!

Have you heard the word? Well, this is the word – Sony is in talks to get a new Men in Black movie off the ground, and they already have a director in mind.

According to a report put out by Variety, Sony is in talks with Straight Outta Compton and The Fate of the Furious director F. Gary Gray to helm a new version of Men in Black

It is unknown at this time if previous Men in Black stars Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will make an appearance in this new film, but it is said that the new story will focus on new characters that are apart of the same alien hunting organization.

From all accounts this does not seem like a “reboot,” but rather a new story in an already established universe.  In the same vein that the new Jurassic Park movies take place in the same universe established in 1993 but revolve around new characters.

‘Suicide Squad’ is setting itself up for Box Office Success

Currently Suicide Squad is battling very low critic reviews, however that doesn’t seem to be keeping the film down!

According to a report from Variety the film has already been able to bring in $8.1 million across seven international markets, which includes South Korea’s $2.9 Million and France’s $2.7 Million. Looking at these numbers it is already set to pass box office jugernauts Guardians of the Galaxy and Deadpool – and it shows no signs of slowing down.

The film set to release in another 57 international markets and is tracking to bring in more than $100 million in those markets.

Warner Bros. has got to be happy with the film tracking like this in the international market because they spent a reported $175 Million in making the movie.  So if the film performs as well here in the U. S as it seems to be in the rest of the world then they will be in the black. Continue reading “‘Suicide Squad’ is setting itself up for Box Office Success”

Suicide Squad Trailer 3!!!

Its been reported by several sites that the Suicide Squad movie went back to do some major reshoots before the August release date.  According to several rumors it was because they felt the need to add more humor to the film for it being too “dark and gloomy and not fun” like Batman v. Superman was.  However, after the release of this trailer consider that rumor FALSE! There is obviously going to be humor and fun in this film, albeit dark humor, but it still looks like a fun time. Check it out!

Now, is this trailer awesome just because it’s set to “Ballroom Blitz”? Probably.  But it follows that “fun” tone that the first trailer gave that was set to “Bohemian Rhapsody.” If you have not seen that trailer then treat yourself!
