According to The Hollywood Reporter, it marks the second-best opening for the MLK holiday period, and Sony’s biggest R-rated debut.

Bad Boys for Life, which garnered positive reviews, was also a hit overseas, where it earned $107.3 million globally from 39 markets. The R-rated film, directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, cost $90 million to produce before marketing expenses. It could gross over $160 million domestically by the end of its run.

The action-comedy arrives 17 years after 2003’s Bad Boys II, which amassed $273 million at the global box office. The 1995 original grossed $141 million worldwide.

The blockbuster pic has also inspired a star-studded soundtrack. Executive produced by DJ Khaled, the 10-track collection includes contributions from Meek Mill, City Girls, Jaden Smith, Rick Ross, and Bryson Tiller.

A fourth installment is already in the works. Smith and Lawrence are expected to return, while Chris Bremner—who worked on Bad Boys for Life—has been tapped to write the script.
