Bad Boys Ride Or Die Coming To Netflix 2024

Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are returning to their iconic characters in the fourth Bad Boys installment, which is currently hitting theaters worldwide. Will the new movie be on Netflix? Yes, and for some, you’ll get it by the end of 2024. Here’s the release schedule for Bad Boys: Ride or Die on Netflix. 

Active since 1995, Bad Boys has been a staple of the careers of both Smith and Lawrence, with their most recent return, Bad Boys For Life in 2020, being the highest-grossing of that year, albeit there’s a big C-sized shaped caveat to that factoid.

Adil & Bilall return to direct this outing, with Lowrey and Burnett trying to clear the name of their late former captain.

The movie has gotten largely positive reviews from audiences and critics thus far (the latter being very surprising given it’s an action comedy), with Danny Leigh for the Financial Times concluding, “Lawrence is still a raucous clown, happy to be seen with buttocks exposed to the ocean breeze. Settling back into their good-natured double act amid many nods to the first three movies, Smith remains the soulful smoothie.”

When will Bad Boys: Ride or Die be on Netflix in the United States?

Let’s begin with the United States, where we know the movie is coming to Netflix via the first window deal Netflix struck with Sony Pictures back in April 2021, which sees all of their theatrical slate from 2022 onwards come to the streamer.

That deal has seen dozens of Sony theatrical movies plus some of their smaller titles from labels like Sony Pictures Classics come to the streamer in that period, and all of the 2024 continue to come to Netflix.

When these movies come to Netflix, they differ slightly from title to title, but for the most part, they come around 120 days after their initial release.

Bad Boys: Ride or Die will be released on October 5th, 2024, using that schedule, although it could be a few days, weeks, or months before or after that date.

As Netflix has the first window, it’ll stream on Netflix for 18 months, until around April 2027. It’ll then jump over to Hulu.

Will Bad Boys: Ride or Die be on Netflix internationally?

Yes, although the timings will ultimately vary depending on where you live.

Let’s begin with other regions that will get the movie within that first window: India and a few other Asian territories. You’ll be streaming the movie from late 2024.

In early to mid 2025, we expect to see some European territories, such as Germany and the Netherlands, pick up the film alongside Israel.

Then, in late 2025 or 2026, regions like Canada and the United Kingdom will be due to receive the movie.
