Deadline details the new film will make between $40-$45 million in the weekend, with four days to add to their total.

According to the publication, the film is on track to match the effort of other movies to come out during the long weekend. Despite being projected for $40 to $45 million, Sony is anticipated $38 million on the opening weekend. Anything over that just adds to the win.


The story is set to wrap up the Bad Boys film franchise and is directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah. The film opens on January 17.
