Bad Boys Will Smith Martin Lawrence

With shooting set to start tomorrow, a leaked behind-the-scenes video from Bad Boys For Life gives fans a look at Will Smith's Mike Lowrey in the franchise's third movie.

The video, which comes from user willjadensmith on Instagram, shows what appears to be a camera test of Smith as Mike. In the video, Smith walks forward while holding his gun at the ready. The user also shared a second behind-the-scenes video of Smith.

The two videos come in advance of filming. Smith posted an image to Instagram claiming that he'd watched the first two films with co-star Martin Lawrence over the weekend and said that filming on the long-stalled project would start on Monday.

A synopsis of the film from earlier in the month reads:

The new installment centers on the Miami PD and its elite AMMO team’s attempt to take down Armando Armas (Scipio), head of a drug cartel. Armando is a cold-blooded killer with a vicious, taunting nature. He is committed to the work of the cartel and is dispatched by his mother to kill Mike (Smith). Nuñez will take on the role of Rite, the tough and funny criminal psychologist who is the newly appointed head of AMMO and Mike’s former girlfriend- and the one who got away.
