bad boys 3 release date

The game of release dates can be a tricky thing. On one level, the studios love to lay out their slates for the next five years in advance, promising an impressive line-up of titles to make sure everyone knows that they’re keeping busy. But on another level, this can sometimes backfire – if a movie needs a little more time to marinate in the development process or if something simply doesn’t come together at the right time, the ensuing schedule changes can be a bad look. It’s not a sign that things are necessarily going wrong, but it does get everyone to wonder what’s going on.

So now we have to wonder what’s going on with Joe Carnahan‘s Bad Boys For Life, the third entry in the Bad Boys series, which has been delayed ten months while the also-in-the-works Bad Boys 4 has apparently fallen off the schedule altogether.

Spider-Man Homecoming Sequel Release Date

The reception for the Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer (watch it here) appears to have been exactly what Sony Pictures was hoping for, because today they announced a release date for the sequel. That’s right, even though Spider-Man: Homecoming doesn’t arrive until July of next year, Sony Pictures is so confident in their collaboration with Marvel Studios to bring Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe that they’ve staked out a date in the summer of 2019.

That’s not the only summer sequel release date news from Sony Pictures either, because the placement of the Spider-Man Homecoming sequel in the summer of 2019 has resulted in the studio shifting their release of Bad Boys 4, the sequel to a sequel that hasn’t even started shooting yet.

Find out both the Bad Boys 4 and Spider-Man Homecoming sequel release date after the jump. Read More »

bad boys 3 villains

“What becomes of Bad Boys when they’re not boys anymore?” is a question writer-director Joe Carnahan (The Grey) wants to ask with Bad Boys for Life. Carnahan’s sequel was originally scheduled to open in theaters next summer, but Sony pushed the release date back, giving the director more time to polish the script. Carnahan is still hard at work on the script, and thankfully he’s still sharing details about it.

Below, learn more about the Bad Boys 3 villains.

bad boys for life

A third Bad Boys film has been in development since at least 2009 and every year or so has brought a fresh news item about behind-the-scenes conversations and negotiations and ever-shifting release dates. The project took on new life last June when director Joe Carnahan was hired to replace Michael Bay, which was quickly followed by news of Bad Boys 3 and Bad Boys 4 arriving in 2017 and 2019. While Carnahan has continued to tease the film on social media, updates have been scarce since then.

That brings us to right now: it seems that Bad Boys 3 has a title that isn’t Bad Boys 3 and a release date that isn’t the previously announced release date. It’s not much, but hey, momentum.
