Get ready for another exhilarating reunion with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence as they team up for the fourth installment of the Bad Boys series - Bad Boys: Ride or Die, directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, coming to Netflix soon.

This is the fourth Bad Boys movie in the franchise, following the original 1995 film, 2003's Bad Boys II (both directed by Michael Bay), and 2020's Bad Boys for Life (directed by Adil & Bilall).

Released in theaters on June 5th, 2024, Bad Boys: Ride or Die sees Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett investigating corruption within the Miami police department when their late Captain Conrad Howard is posthumously accused of being involved with drug cartels. A setup turns them into fugitives, forcing them to work outside the law to solve the case and clear Howard's name. The official teaser, as per IMDb, reads:

"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."
