It only took 16 years, but the official trailer for Bad Boys for Life is finally here and we’re all better for it.

In these two minutes and 30 seconds of rapture, our lord and savior Will Smith and the legendary Martin Lawrence reprise their roles as Miami Police detectives Mike Lowrey and Marcus Burnett for more black-ass banter with a complimentary side of over-the-top action.

“We’re not just black, we’re cops too!” Lawrence says in the clip. “We’ll pull ourselves over later!”

Only this time around, the dynamic duo are joined by a crop of fresh-faced cops played by Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical), Alexander Ludwig (Vikings), and Charles Melton (Riverdale) in their quest to take down the ruthless leader of a drug cartel.


Jerry Bruckheimer is returning to produce the film, but after directing the first two entries in the franchise, Michael Bay has been replaced by co-directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah.


I can’t believe we’ve waited so long for Will and Martin to reunite on screen, but hurry up and take my money right now.

Bad Boys for Life hits theaters Jan. 17.
