Animator Luigi Lucarelli collaborated with Sony Pictures to draw several moments from the Bad Boys film franchise in comic book form.
“I had a wonderful opportunity to work with Sony Pictures on these 10 illustrations to celebrate 25 years of Bad Boys,” Lucarelli wrote on Twitter. “It was such a blast working on these and I hope I did these iconic moments justice!”
The illustrations depict Mike Lowrey (Will Smith) and Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) in their element across the three Bad Boys films. One image features Lowrey and Burnett shouting their trademark “Bad Boys For Life!” catchphrase. Another covers a funny moment from Bad Boys 2, where Burnett (with the help of Lowrey) interrogates one of his daughter’s potential suitors.
The first Bad Boys, directed by Michael Bay, exploded onto the scene in 1995. Bay would follow up with a sequel, Bad Boys II, in 2003. The latest sequel, Bad Boys for Life, was a critical and commercial success. A fourth installment has received the green light and is being written by Chris Brenner.
Directed by Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah from a script written by Chris Bremner, Bad Boys For Life stars Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Paola Nunez, Kate Del Castillo, Nicky Jam and Joe Pantoliano.
