Good news for those Bad Boys: audiences are still ride or die for the exploits of Mike and Marcus. That’s reflected in the opening weekend box office figures for the buddy-action franchise’s fourth instalment, Bad Boys: Ride Or Die, which saw Will Smith and Martin Lawrence draw in an impressive haul – earning over $100 million worldwide. In a stuttering summer, with major movies like Furiosa and The Fall Guy underperforming, that’s a significant success; particularly considering Bad Boys doesn’t sit on the CGI-heavy mega-spectacle end of the blockbuster spectrum.

Bad Boys: Ride Or Die earned $56 million at the US box office, and added $48 million from across the rest of the world, all adding up to an opening weekend of $104 million. That’s significantly higher than the opening haul for The Fall Guy (around $65 million), and Furiosa (roughly $59 million). The film is directed by Adil & Bilall – who also helmed previous entry Bad Boys For Life, and the unreleased Batgirl – and earned generally positive reviews ahead of its debut. Stay tuned to see if it can continue to pull in the punters, and if other upcoming films – like Inside Out 2, A Quiet Place: Day One, Twisters, and Deadpool & Wolverine – can bring the box office to life.

Either way, it’s a promising sign for future Bad Boys, a welcome boost to cinemas across the globe, and a shot in the arm for Will Smith’s career after a… troubled time. Who’s ready for ‘Bad Boys: Here We Go Again’?
