‘Bad Boys For Life’ On Pace To Win The Weekend Box Office With $68 Million Opening

According to early projections, Bad Boys For Life will take the top spot at the weekend box office and is performing better than earlier projections thanks to its $23.5 million opening day at the North American box office. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence’s latest entry in the action-comedy series on a pace for a $66-68 million opening.

Bad Boys For Life‘s very strong Martin Luther King Jr. weekend showing will make it the second highest-grossing film ever over this particular holiday weekend, right behind American Sniper ($107.2 million in 2014.)

 

Robert Downey Jr.’s Dolittle looks to be a disappointment, bringing in just $6.3 million in domestic receipts on Friday, which puts it on track for $31 million.
