Entering its third week, Bad Boys For Life remains at the top of the box office and becomes the Bad Boys franchise’s highest-grossing installment yet.

According to Variety, the Will Smith and Martin Lawrence-starring film has earned $291 million globally since airing on Jan. 17. The profits mark a new record for the franchise, with the Bad Boys sequel previously generating $271 million and 1995’s initial Bad Boys making $141 million.

The outlet also reports that Bad Boys For Life has been internationally successful, with $10 million coming from Australian audiences, $10.5 million earned in Mexico, $12.7 generated in Germany and $14.8 million made in the United Kingdom.

According to Deadline, the film also conquered Super Bowl weekend, with sales raising nearly $18 million.

Bad Boys For Life’s massive success means that a fourth edition of the crime-drama franchise could be on the way. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a Bad Boys No. 4 is already in the works. The outlet also reports that fans won’t have to wait another 17 years for the next installment.

“The script wasn’t right,” Lawrence previously explained to GQ about the film’s delay. “And Will, to his credit, refused to do the movie until the script was right. It wouldn’t have been a good movie. We didn’t want that. We wanted to do a sequel where people would go, ‘Oh, man, that’s what I’m talking about. It just gets better.’”

In an interview with The New York Times, Lawrence also spoke about what made Bad Boys For Life so special.

“Well first and foremost, working with Will again,” he said. “Having that opportunity to work with one of the best in the business once again was a great joy for me. And the fact that we had a great script that we thought was worthy of giving people nothing less than the first two.”
