The movie, directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, cost $90 million to produce and recorded the second best MLK weekend box office opening to date, after 2014’s American Sniper, and is Sony’s biggest R-rated debut ever.

The third edition to the movie follows up 1995’s Bad Boys and 2003’s Bad Boys II. It depicts detective Marcus Burnett (played by Lawrence) and his partner Mike Lowery (played by Smith) teaming up to take down the vicious leader of a Miami drug cartel.
