Sony Pictures has finally shared the first trailer for Bad Boys 4 (via, revealing the movie will be titled Bad Boys: Ride or Die. The studio has also confirmed this fourth instalment will arrive in theaters on June 7, giving them just a few short months to build hype for Will Smith's comeback feature. 

The next Bad Boys movie marks his first blockbuster since he slapped Chris Rock during the 2022 Academy Awards, the same night Smith took home the Oscar for "Best Actor" thanks to his performance in King Richard.

Bad Boys: Ride or Die, which will see Mike and Marcus go on the run, also serves as a return for directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah after Warner Bros. Discovery scrapped their near-completed Batgirl movie. Adil & Bilall also helmed Bad Boys for Life, the highest-grossing movie of 2020 (it was a hit, but it took the record because it was released before the pandemic shuttered theaters). 

"This Summer, the world's favorite Bad Boys are back with their iconic mix of edge-of-your seat action and outrageous comedy but this time with a twist: Miami's finest are now on the run," reads a brief synopsis. 

The Bad Boys franchise began in 1995 and followed the title characters as they attempted to recover stolen drugs while overcoming their differences. The sequel, Bad Boys II, followed in 2003 and sees the detectives investigating drug trafficking while dealing with family matters. Both movies were helmed by Transformers' Michael Bay.

Adil & Bilall's Bad Boys for Life explored themes of ageing and partnership as the detectives confronted a new threat, and this fourth instalment looks set to pick up where that one left us.

Directed by Adil & Bilall from a script by Chris Bremner, Bad Boys: Ride or Die stars Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Paola Nuñez, Eric Dane, Ioan Gruffudd, Jacob Scipio, Melanie Liburd, Tasha Smith, with Tiffany Haddish and Joe Pantoliano.

The movie is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Will Smith, Chad Oman, and Doug Belgrad, with Barry Waldman, Mike Stenson, James Lassiter, Jon Mone, Chris Bremner, and Martin Lawrence serving as executive producers.

I'm in. Will and Marty Mar's chemistry never dwindles. Some dope shots in that trailer. That gun toss was inventive.

Reggie is back again

@GhostDog - Im watching for sure, but can't help but see Will in a different light after his emotional outburst and slapping another grown man on stage shown to the world.

I hope this movie rights that..

How much ya'll wana bet Chris Rock drops a special around the same time. 🤣

I was unironically thinking about that scene in Bad Boys 2 the other day and wondering what happened to the Reggie actor. If I had known, I would've watched Bad Boys 3 ages ago.
JonAwesome - 3/26/2024, 11:10 AM
Now would be the perfect time for Will to dump Jada’s ass and kick off the summer with movie! Gain some of that cred back!
Biggums - 3/28/2024, 1:03 PM
@JonAwesome - would've been done. He's got way too much to lose.
AmazingFILMporg - 3/26/2024, 11:11 AM
Looks good🔥💪✌️🖖
TheVisionary25 - 3/26/2024, 11:14 AM
Looks like it’ll be about as enjoyable as the last which I thought was decent (and the best one so far imo) so I’ll check it out!!.

The chemistry between Smith & Lawrence still seems on point and I’m glad Jacob Scipio is back since I liked him in the last one.

Also technically Emancipation was Smith’s comeback but since it was I think just on Apple TV+ then this is his theatrical one.
dracula - 3/26/2024, 11:14 AM
After his Boondocks moment at the Oscars, Smith is wasting no time making the movies his fans have been asking for

I am legend 2

Bad boys sequels

What next he going to find a way to come back and get the third independence day made?

Men in black 4

Irobot 2

Hitch 2 Son of a Hitch

Hancock 2

Not a big smith fan, like some of his movies but dont think ive ever watched anything because of him
AmazingFILMporg - 3/26/2024, 11:20 AM
@dracula -

I am legend 2 and bad boys 4 were already in the works before the slap💁

But I get the point🖖
dracula - 3/26/2024, 11:22 AM
@AmazingFILMporg - technically i am legend 2 has been in the works since the first film came out

Dont think it got traction though until recently
WhatIfRickJames - 3/26/2024, 11:17 AM
The only redemption Will Smith can have is if Chris Rock is in this and knocks him tf out
DemonTweeks - 3/27/2024, 5:22 AM
@WhatIfRickJames - WAIT........keep talking, i want to hear more
dracula - 3/26/2024, 11:18 AM
Never got into these
SteelGunZ - 3/26/2024, 11:19 AM
I don't believe this movie is gonna do well at the box office and it's a shame for Martin Lawrence.

Will Smith has lost most of his fan base now and really don't support his work anymore.
dracula - 3/26/2024, 11:24 AM
@SteelGunZ -

Is it because of the slap or because he let GI Jane air their dirty laundry for the public to see and they cant take him seriously anymore
SteelGunZ - 3/26/2024, 11:29 AM
@dracula - All of the above!
RitoRevolto - 3/26/2024, 1:14 PM
@SteelGunZ - I think that's more wishful thinking on your part.
SteelGunZ - 3/26/2024, 2:13 PM
@RitoRevolto - I don't wish bad on nobody my friend!

Webster614 - 3/26/2024, 4:29 PM
@SteelGunZ - Were you tracking his entire fan base pre smack, and saw they all handed in their "Will Smith Fan" card? What a dumb statement/assumption.
Deadinside - 3/27/2024, 10:40 AM
@Webster614 - Well, apparently, you did NOT see the videos on YouTube of all of us tearing up our Will Smith Fan Club cards...! Heck, I even canceled my subscription to the Will Smith monthly newsletter...!☮️😉
SteelGunZ - 3/27/2024, 10:46 AM
@Webster614 - BOL...sorry, didn't mean to hurt your feelings. Also didn't know there was "Will Smith Fan" card.

Please don't turn or get rid of you special "Will Smith Fan" card on my account.
Webster614 - 3/28/2024, 12:19 PM
@SteelGunZ - BOL? what is is 2003? I couldn't give two shits what happens to Will Smith but I've yet to see the outrage surrounding his slap that you do.
dracula - 3/26/2024, 11:19 AM
Curb your enthusiasm just did a joke about the slap and it aired on oscar night

Looks much better than the last one (which I still enjoyed. Didn't care for the witch angle they went with. Just didn't seem to fit the tone of the franchise.) Martin looks more physical which was missing for me in the last one. It just has such a different look than the way Michael Bay filmed them. Kinda looking like they are going the F&F route with the movies lol. Still HYPED!!!
Order66 - 3/26/2024, 11:33 AM
Holy shit that looks [frick]ing awesome and funny! Bad boys is at its best when it’s rated R.
Forthas - 3/26/2024, 11:34 AM
They fast and Furious-ized Bad Boys! No Thanks! That ship has sailed!
TheloniousJay - 3/26/2024, 11:51 AM
Of course, I will be seeing this in the theaters. Number 3 wasn't as good as the Bay films. However, it was still fun. In this one, they also look better. Both of their ages (and weight) were showing in #3.
DarthOmega - 3/26/2024, 11:55 AM
Looks fun AF. Let's go!!!

Can’t slap a dude in on live TV then cry about it in an interview and still Star in a movie called Bad Boyz.
SteelGunZ - 3/26/2024, 2:11 PM
@slickrickdesigns - LMAO....Right!
harryba11zack - 3/26/2024, 12:17 PM
I just can't look at that cuck slapper the same way anymore

That last shot of the camera flying through the mayhem and the gun toss

These guys were going to make Batgirl...I think they might have cooked
TheVisionary25 - 3/26/2024, 1:09 PM
@GhostDog - they directed the pilot and finale of Ms Marvel aswell and brought the animation touches to it

Marvel blew the chance to work with these directors more. I hope DC gets them back
