Sony’s “Bad Boys for Life” was the top movie in the US last weekend,  as it collected an estimated US $59.2 million in ticket sales from Friday through Sunday.

That’s just a bit less than the opening weekend “Bad Boys II” had in 2003, adjusting for inflation — a remarkable start for a sequel being released more than 15 years later.

“Bad Boys for Life” picked up an additional US $38.6 million in overseas markets this weekend.

In the new movie, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence reprise their roles as Miami buddy cops, careening through a plot that has something to do with a drug cartel.

The sequel offers a plethora of jokes about aging and a great many explosions— though conspicuously absent is the director Michael Bay, who helmed the first two “Bad Boys” movies.

There is talks of making a 4th Bad Boys movie after the success of the 3rd.
