News Desk1 day ago

According to industry analyst Exhibitor Relations, Sony’s fourth installment of the action comedy series earned an estimated $56 million, marking a significant milestone in Smith’s career recovery from his 2022 Academy Awards slap of Chris Rock.

“The series has room to grow and Bad Boys is in elite company.” “These are very good figures,” Franchise Entertainment Research analyst David A. Gross stated. The triumph is a pleasant diversion from Smith’s 2022 action film “Emancipation,” in which he played a fleeing slave during the American Civil War, a character that was met with little enthusiasm from viewers and was a box office bomb.
