While it doesn’t set any franchise records (Bad boys for life remains the biggest opening of the quartet at $62 million), Bad boys 4 is a much-needed encouragement for cinema owners. Despite the film’s solid start, the year-to-date deficit worsened this weekend as ticket sales now lag 26% behind 2023, according to Comscore. It’s been a worryingly slow May and June, with underperforming blockbusters like Universal’s action comedy The autumn man and Warner Bros.’ science fiction prequel Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. So Hollywood and exhibitors hope so Bad boys will continue to maintain momentum and drive movie attendance through the remainder of June – with releases like Pixar’s Inside out 2 (June 14) and A quiet place: day one (June 28) — through August.
