Watch The New Bad Boys For Life Trailer

Sony Pictures has released a brand new trailer for the highly-anticipated action-comedy threequel Bad Boys for Life, featuring new footage of the film’s action-packed sequences.

The new installment centers on the Miami PD and its elite AMMO team’s attempt to take down Armando Armas, head of a drug cartel. Armando is a cold-blooded killer with a vicious, taunting nature. He is committed to the work of the cartel and is dispatched by his mother to kill Mike Lowery. Paola Nuñez will take on the role of Rita, the tough and funny criminal psychologist who is the newly appointed head of AMMO and Mike’s former girlfriend… the one who got away.

Along with stars Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, Joe Pantoliano (The Sopranos) will also reprise his role as Captain Howard along with Theresa Randle (Spawn) returning as Theresa, Marcus’ wife. They’ll be joined by new cast members Vanessa Hudgens (The Princess Switch), Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games) and Charles Melton (Riverdale), who will play a modern, highly specialized police unit that collides with the old school Bad Boys (Smith and Lawrence) when a new threat emerges in Miami. Other newcomers include Jacob Scipio (Hunter Killer), who will play the ruthless drug cartel leader Paola Nuñez (The Son), and DJ Khaled in an unspecified role.

The first two Bad Boys films were directed by Michael Bay. Directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah will take the reins on the latest entry from a script by Peter Craig (Bad Boys 2), Joe Carnahan (The A-Team) and Chris Bremmer. Jerry Bruckheimer will resume his producing role.

Bad Boys for Life will hit theaters on January 17, 2020.

The Most Inspiring Sports Movies of All Time

Every sport is filled with Cinderella stories, conflict on and off the field, and edge of your seat moments, which is why many sports movies have hit the silver screen throughout the decades.

There are, however, some flicks that follow an athlete or team’s rise to success, which will inspire others to follow their dreams. If you want to absorb yourself in an uplifting film that forces you to jump up off the sofa, here are the most inspiring sports movies of all time to watch at least once.

The Blind Side (2009)

The Blind Side, which was nominated for Best Picture at the 2010 Oscars, is easily one of the most heartwarming sports flicks every made. The movie tells the real story of Michael Oher, an NFL football player, and his foster family. As his mother is struggling with drug addiction, Michael is embraced into the Tuohy family, who provide him with warmth, shelter, food, clothing and educational support.

One of the most inspirational scenes in the movie is when his adoptive mother, Leigh Anne (Sandra Bullock), steps onto the football field during practice to give Michael a much-needed pep talk, which helps him to reach his sporting potential.

Coach Carter (2005)

Any child who has a dream of making it into an NBA Championship winning team should watch Coach Carter at least once. The movie proves how one dedicated coach (Samuel L. Jackson) can have a big impact on young athletes, as their commitment and belief in their ability can inspire budding players to greatness and change the rest of their life. The movie also features one of the best motivational speeches in movie history, which could inspire budding ball players to take to a court.

Rocky Balboa (2006)

It doesn’t matter if you are an avid boxing fan or not, it is hard not to be inspired by the Rocky movie franchise. After all, it follows the many hardships one talented athlete must overcome to secure sporting glory. While Rocky VI (1986) is a fan favorite, it is Rocky Balboa that will inspire you to pull yourself off the sofa, put on some boxing gloves and take to the ring.

One of the best scenes from the flick is when Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) gives his son a pep talk, explaining there will be hardships in his life, but he is the only person responsible for both his dreams and accomplishments, and he can’t blame the world for the goals he fails to reach.

Friday Night Lights (2004)

During the lull in the 19/20 NFL season, you should immerse yourself in Friday Night Lights, which was based on H.G. Bissinger’s Book. The story focuses on the economically poor and racially divided town of Odessa, Texas, who find joy when rooting for The Permian High Panthers.

While the team have a long history of winning, they are thrown into disarray when their superstar tailback suffers a career-destroying injury. Despite the community and team losing hope, they are soon inspired by Coach Gaines. Played by Billy Bob Thornton, he makes an inspiring speech that changes the players’ views of perfection, as he believes “perfect is being able to look your friends in the eye and know you did everything you could not to let them down.”

Remember the Titans (2000)

Remember the Titans tells the story of an African American coach, played by Denzel Washington, who has recently been recruited to a high school team. Set in 1971, racial tension is dividing the Virginia high school and preventing the team from becoming a close-knit unit both on and off the field. It is full to the brim with inspiring scenes and speeches, with Coach Boone teaching the players to trust one another to enjoy success and change community perception.

So, if you want to watch an uplifting tale that inspires you to reach your own personal or athletic goals, you should check out the above sports movies.

Bee Gees Biopic In The Works From Bohemian Rhapsody Producer

A music biopic about Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducted hitmakers the Bee Gees is in the works, with Bohemian Rhapsody producer Graham King, Paramount Pictures and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Partners shepherding the project.

King’s GK Films, which brought the box office hit and Oscar-nominated Queen biopic to the big screen, secured to the life rights to the Gibb brothers’ story as well as the group’s music rights, Deadline first reported. Paramount Pictures, which found success in the Elton John biopic Rocketman, and production company Sister are also attached to the film.

However, Steven Spielberg had long been working on setting up the Bee Gees’ film for over a decade – first with DreamWorks and more recently with his Amblin – and has since been added to the biopic as a producer; Amblin was previously unsuccessful in securing the necessary rights from Barry Gibb, the Bee Gees’ lone surviving member. 

As the biopic has just received the green light, no director, screenwriter or actors are lined up for the Bee Gees movie, the latest in a streak of Hollywood-made rock biopics. One of the best-selling acts of all time, Bee Gees registered nine Number One singles over their five-decade career as well as the diamond-selling, Grammy Album of the Year-winning Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.
