Unless you tuned in to the Netflix series Sense8, there’s a good chance you haven’t seen Joe Pantoliano in a little while unless you’ve been re-watching one of his famous turns in The Matrix, Risky Business, The Goonies, Memento or the Bad Boys franchise. But thankfully, the latter will bring him back to the blockbusters he deserves to be starring in.
The long-gestating and anticipated (?) sequel Bad Boys for Life will not only have Will Smith and Martin Lawrence back as Mike Lowery and Marcus Burnett, but it will also bring back the actor that we lovingly refer to as Joey Pants in the role of Captain Howard. Read More »
The Bad Boys are officially back together. The long-gestating Bad Boys 3 received the green light from Sony last month with Will Smith on board, but a big question mark remained around franchise co-star Martin Lawrence, who remained a hold-out for as long as a Bad Boys 3 had been rumored. But now, Lawrence’s return is seemingly confirmed, with the actor set to reprise his role as Detective Marcus Burnett in Bad Boys For Life.

Update: The Hollywood Reporter says NBC has given a formal pilot order to this still-untitled show, and some new details about the plot have come to light. Those new details can be found at the bottom of our original article from October 2017, which begins below.

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.

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.

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