‘Bad Boys For Life’ Has Great Weekend At The Box Office

Published On January 20, 2020 » 100 Views» By Z-rowe »

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are probably celebrating this Monday because they have produced another hit.

The comedy-action sequel ‘Bad Boys for Life‘ hit theaters this past weekend, and it earned an impressive $62.1 million over the weekend. If you include today, it’s earned over $70 million.

It was expected to earn around $40 to $45 million, so earning over $70 million has to spark some celebration.

Solid word of mouth from both audiences and critics (it landed an “A” CinemaScore from moviegoers and a 76% on Rotten Tomatoes) boosted ticket sales and justified Sony’s decision to revive a 25-year-old franchise. ‘Bad Boys for Life’ now holds the second-biggest opening ever for a January release (behind ‘American Sniper’ with $107 million), as well as Sony’s best start for an R-rated movie.

There is just something about that on-screen chemistry between Lawrence and Smith.

Meanwhile, Robert Downey Jr.’sDolittle‘ film failed miserably at the box office, making just over $20 million. Its budget was close to $200 million.

It’ll have to find extreme success overseas to make some money back.
