I liked the trailer, but this *reeks* of "thought it would be a summer hit, don't like how it turned out, dumping it in January instead." I hope I'm wrong... but that scares the shit out of me. Can't recall the last time a 100M budget action movie sequel had a January release date and was *good*.

As long as shit gets real, I'm in.

The only thing that gives me pause is that Michael Bay didn't come back to direct it.

And that, my friend, is the first and last time I will ever type that sentence.

big fun action, gaudily shot by Bay, lots of banter, likable leads, etc.

the fact that they (potentially) couldn't replicate that? I mean, it's a Will Smith led sequel to two big hits... and it's released in JANUARY?

I guess I'm just not worried the same way I might be worried about an MCU flick coming out in January.

Man though. They would really have to go out of their way to make a flop. Even if it were just mediocre with 50% rotten tomatoes, you would think nostalgia + Will Smith would make this a smash.

::shrugs:: If they really are about to drop a deuce, maybe/hopefully the producers will watch Hobbs and Shaw and then demand reshoots before it's too late.

... then so could Bad Boys For Life. So maybe it still makes money.

But, like, Bad Boys 2 had a 22% Rotten Tomatoes score, and they *still* gave it a prime release date. So... can it really be worse than that?

Not that this negates your point, but the original release date was Feb 2017, and it bounced around a few (non-Summer) dates before settling on Jan 2020, but that was before anything had been filmed. So, even in concept, it wasn’t considered for a prominent release date.

Still though, could have been a frowny face text from Martin’s trainer that made Sony decide to release it in January.

That's all that matters to me

The first one was the first movie as a teenager that made me a movie nerd.

I'll probably watch this tho. If only out of loyalty for the series.
