This Bad Boys threequel trailer shows Marcus Burnett (Lawrence) and Mike Lowery (Smith) getting saddled with a young (also very good-looking) special-ops team called “AMMO,” led by Vanessa Hudgens and Charles Melton,
which Smith calls “a High School Musical boy band with guns.”

While Marcus is eyeing a retirement life, Mike is still pumped up to beat the criminals down. However, when Mike discovers someone is trying to kill him, he and Marcus keep things in the family, and go to work for one last ride.

Retaining the franchise charm, the trailer showcases slick car chases, with Smith spinning out in a Porsche, stylised action sequences, explosions, and snappy banter. In the final scene, a body falls out of the sky, and lands on Marcus’ car, prompting him to wail, “Aww, that’s my wife’s car!"
