Will Smith Learned He’s No Tom Cruise While Filming Bad Boys for Life

Published by Darron Toy on

-You posted this photo,
or someone posted this photo. This is backstage.
This is on set. -Oh, man, yeah. -And you ran into
the “Coming to America” sequel. -Yeah.
-Wesley and Eddie Murphy. -That’s the black Mt. Rushmore. [ Laughter ] [ Cheers and applause ] -That’s fantastic.
It really is, man. -Man, that day was so beautiful.
-Where were you? -So, we’re — That’s
at Tyler Perry’s Studios. And we didn’t know each other.
-How is that studio? -It is fantastic.
-He’s the best. -We didn’t know each other
were going to be there. They were finishing up
“Coming to America 2.” -Yeah.
-And we were finishing up “Bad Boys.” And it was a knock on the door. And it was Wesley. And we’re like, “Ohh!”
So we were hanging. He was like, “Yo, let’s go knock
on Eddie’s door.” So we went over
and knocked on Eddie’s door. And it was like — It was just
one of those beautiful moments, the four of us there at the newly opened
Tyler Perry Studios, which, you know, used to be
a former Confederate army base. -Yes.
-You know, that’s been transformed into
Tyler Perry Studios. So, yeah.
-Isn’t that great? -That was fantastic. -Yeah, that’s pretty cool.
-That was fantastic. -Have you known —
Have you known Eddie? -Yeah, I met Eddie when I first
came to L.A., you know? Eddie’s one of those dudes that is like the standard
of excellence, you know? So every young comedian, black actor, you know, you want
to test yourself against Eddie. -Yeah.
-You want to see — But he is the truth, man. -Did you see him on “SNL”?
Did you see him host? -Yes. He —
-He was great. -Love that guy.
-He crushed it. Yeah, yeah, yeah.
-Love that guy. -Let’s set the stage.
“Bad Boys for Life.” What’s happening now?
-“Bad Boys for Life.” Alright, so, it’s 25 years later
from the first movie. And what we tried to do
that was really critical and important to me is not try
to just do the old movies again. I was like, you had to take
into consideration the time, had to take into consideration how the characters
would have grown. And the reason it took so long
is because I didn’t want to — I didn’t want to make it
just as a cash grab, you know? “Hey, everybody loves sequels.
Let’s just do a sequel.” -Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, no.
-You know, and I — You know, I had fumbled a couple
of my last sequels, you know? I just — I wasn’t happy
with the “Men in Black” sequel. And I just really wanted to make
sure that this was a stand-alone film that people would have
a real, brand-new experience in. -People are buzzing. It’s crazy.
I mean, the trailer alone. I was like, “Oh, they’re back.
This is so much fun.” -Yeah, it’s fantastic.
Y’all going to love it. And I — Yo. [ Cheers and applause ]
And I say that a lot. I say that a lot.
I’m gonna keep it real. Sometimes I say,
“Y’all gonna love it,” and y’all not gonna love it.
[ Laughter ] You know, ’cause
sometimes I’ve seen it, and I know you’re not —
y’all not gonna love it, but it’s an expensive movie.
But — So — But this time — This movie is out of here.
It is so good. If you liked the first two
at all, there are scenes
in this movie — ’cause it’s really
about friendship and about the reality
of what it’s like when somebody’s life
takes a different turn. -Yeah.
-You’re ready to go one way, and your partner’s ready
to go another direction. -At this point,
you’re family, really. -Yeah, and it’s like, there are
some really powerful scenes about friendship and some of the funniest stuff
you are ever gonna see. Martin Lawrence is genius
comedic in this film. -Oh, my gosh. There’s also a little part
in the movie, too, where, like, you’re like —
-Don’t give nothing away! -No, I won’t give — -Oh, geez. Spoiler alert. -No.
-What are you doing? -But you feel like —
-You’ve gone mad! [ Laughter ]
-No, I wouldn’t do that. I wouldn’t do that.
But there’s — where you’re kind of feeling
like you’re older. -Yeah, yeah.
-And almost, like, a mid-life type of crisis thing. But you look so young, though.
Do you feel — -I’m trying to hang on.
I’m trying to hang on. Yeah, nah, there were a couple
of the action sequences that I was like, “Ooh!”
You know? ‘Cause I started, and I told myself
I was doing all of my stunts. I was doing, you know,
Tom Cruise that was just hanging
on the side of a airplane. -Yes.
-At 50. I was like, “Man, I’m better
than Tom Cruise.” -Yeah! Do it!
-And I did like two stunts. And I was like, “I’m not better
than Tom Cruise.” [ Laughter, applause ] -“I’ll let him — I’ll let him do that.”
Yeah, yeah, yeah. I want to show everyone a clip. Here’s Will Smith
in “Bad Boys for Life.” Take a look at this. -Whoa! [ Tires squealing ] -I’m putting your seatbelt on.
-Yeah. -That’s how we do it now.
-Yeah, you’re damn right. -Oh, my — Overtown’s a no-go. He got people here,
dangerous people. -We’re dangerous people. [ Yelling ] -You might want to pull over
for a minute. I need to tell you something.
-Pull over. Are you gonna pull over?
-Yeah, yeah. -Okay, give me one second.
Let me see — Wait. Pull over. I just need to pull over
for a second! Man, can we get a time-out? [ Cheers and applause ] -Will Smith, everybody!

Will Smith said blacks don't have the same opportunities in America as white people do. while making 50 zillion dollars a movie what a hypocrite.

prettycoolPJ · January 12, 2020 at 12:48 am

Will has had a lot of flops in the last few years. I thoroughly believe that if this doesn't work, he will not be able to redeem himself.

Revi Mangkulla · January 12, 2020 at 1:01 am

zyphon7 · January 12, 2020 at 2:03 am

jgreening · January 12, 2020 at 2:03 am

Mark ass brownly

butchtropic · January 12, 2020 at 3:37 am

Sad Hollywood, all they can do is pump out re-boots anymore, Top gun 2, Bad boys 2, Coming to America 2. About as exciting and original as a Big Mac.

dansvideos99 · January 12, 2020 at 3:44 am

Katyal and Conway got it right on WaPo today:    SEPARATE the ARTICLES !   (1) the Obstruction Article is ripe for trial:  all evidence that Trump obstructed Congress is of public record.   (2)  Hold back the Ukraine Article UNTIL Senate agrees to call the firsthand witnesses with their documents, and if Senate refuses, then re-open the House Investigation on Ukraine Article.   —  That is unquestionably perfect.  PERFECT !!!  love, love, love it!

Kyle · January 12, 2020 at 3:44 am

Will Smith is a fucking liar, it was not a confederate military base it was established by the US Army in 1867! The Civil War ended in 1865 it became a military base after the Civil War it was a US federal military base not a confederate military base what a fucking douche bag he’s doing nothing but race baiting doesn’t know shit on history! The union owned the base not the Confederates!

Rashidi Shamuddin · January 12, 2020 at 3:48 am

Now, where is my Rush Hour 4?

FayeIL · January 12, 2020 at 3:55 am

EAGLES 215 · January 12, 2020 at 3:59 am

rahorin · January 12, 2020 at 4:14 am

Man I always wondered what happen to Wesley I loved his action movies.

Dr Phot · January 12, 2020 at 4:17 am

Swap out Martin (No offense) with Denzel and that's the Black Entertainment Mt. Rushmore.

babarian king · January 12, 2020 at 4:25 am

I'm sorry if this is stereotype thing to say but black don't crack DAMN

Iron Cross Training, Ltd · January 12, 2020 at 4:37 am

Tom is a special kind of individual Absolute immersion with his roles

Brian Jefferson · January 12, 2020 at 5:53 am

That outro is like a less good version of Busta Rhymes – Woo Hah! (Origin Unknown Remix) from the 90s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8GaMoGwxbc

Bills Mafia · January 12, 2020 at 5:58 am

Eric Robinson · January 12, 2020 at 6:43 am

Lord Megatron · January 12, 2020 at 8:25 am

@1:38 – The turds at Disney (and Rian Johnson & JJ Abrams in particular) really should listen to what Will says here about how a sequel to an established, loved franchise really SHOULD be handled.

DGiovanni · January 12, 2020 at 9:34 am

No, Tom Cruise can actually act.

wespozo · January 12, 2020 at 9:40 am

Coming to America 2!
Snipes and Murphy. That is going to be amazing!

REE ANIMATION · January 12, 2020 at 9:51 am

Kendall Spires · January 12, 2020 at 12:29 pm

I can't wait to see that movie. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, c'mon maaaaan. How could it NOT be good?! (BTW – That was rhetorical. I know there are so many ways it could suck. But if it does, it won't be because of those two! 🤣)

Rishkhan Productions · January 12, 2020 at 3:07 pm

That ain't Will Smith

theDustyJoe · January 12, 2020 at 3:19 pm

Not that it’s important to anyone… but the base the studio is on was established during the “Reconstruction era” AFTER the civil war.. It was never a confederate army base.

bargain bob · January 12, 2020 at 3:48 pm

You’re no Denzel either lol

Briand Joyce · January 12, 2020 at 3:51 pm

Denzel is not there cant be without him.

Wavy Davy · January 12, 2020 at 4:00 pm
