Will Smith Sneakily Surprises Fans at 'Bad Boys: Ride or Die' Screening

The Hollywood star gives fans a memorable experience by making a surprise appearance at a movie screening, proving he's not just a box office sensation but also a man of the people.

AceShowbiz - In a surprising and thrilling move, Will Smith snuck into a screening of his latest blockbuster "Bad Boys: Ride or Die", creating quite the commotion among unsuspecting moviegoers. Smith, who has been keeping a low profile since his controversial incident at the 2022 Academy Awards, delighted fans by watching the movie with them at Cinemark Baldwin Hills Crenshaw. Disguised with a mask, Smith blended into the crowd before revealing himself after the movie ended.

"We're in Baldwin Hills. We're about to go in the theater," Smith said in a video he posted on Instagram. He described this as a "ritual" he follows for all his movies, stating, "On Friday, Saturday, usually a matinee on Sunday, I like going to the theaters." Sitting unassumingly among the audience, he enjoyed the film before announcing his presence as the credits rolled, saying, "Hey, I'm glad y'all enjoyed that. That was a good movie." The revelation sparked excited yells and prompted fans to gather around him for selfies and handshakes.

The surprise visit quickly went viral, as a TikTok user captured the moment and shared it with the caption, "When you walk out of Bad Boys movie and Will Smith walks out with you after having watched the movie with you!! Only at CINEMARK!" Smith himself shared a video of the encounter on his social media, playfully hinting at future surprise visits with the line, "It was SPECTABULOUS! Where should I go next?"

"Bad Boys: Ride or Die", the fourth installment in the iconic buddy cop franchise, sees Smith reunite with co-star Martin Lawrence. The film follows their characters, Miami detectives Mike Lowry and Marcus Burnett, as they try to clear their late captain’s name. The movie has been a major success, grossing $56 million domestically and another $48.6 million internationally, reaching a global debut of $104.6 million and positioning itself as the highest-grossing R-rated movie since last summer's "Oppenheimer". This strong opening also pushes the franchise closer to the $1 billion mark.

Smith's unexpected appearance not only thrilled fans but also served as a reminder of his enduring star power, especially after a turbulent period in his career. As the "Bad Boys" franchise continues to thrive nearly 30 years after the original 1995 film, Smith's interaction with fans may very well help to re-establish his stardom, drawing both old and new audiences back to the theaters.
