Will Smith and Martin Lawrence began shooting the action-comedy sequel “Bad Boys for Life” recently in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta masquerading as Miami.

It was cold, gray and miserable as they started shooting, but through the magic of film, it will probably look warm and sunny on camera.

Smith announced the start of production on Instagram.

The buddy cop movie is scheduled to come out in theaters January 17, 2020.

Smith is now 50 and Lawrence 53.

Talk about a second sequel floated around for many years but has only recently finally come to fruition.

In the film, Joe Pantoliano will reprise his role as their boss Captain Conrad Howard. New cast members include Alexander Ludwig (“Vikings”) Charles Melton (“Riverdale”) and Vanessa Hudgens (“Dog Days,” “Second Act”).

Jason Momoa traveled from Atlantis to Hawaii to photobomb a couple’s wedding Dec. 20, E!News reported.

Katie Meyers and her new husband were posing for photos after their ceremony when the “Aquaman” star strolled past in the background.

"We were taking our wedding photos after the ceremony out on the rocks, and Jason Momoa and some of his family and some friends just all walked out on the beach," Meyers told E! News. "They were shouting congratulations to us, and they were super calm and super chill."

"It was totally unplanned and spontaneous,” Carina Cooper, of Oahu Boutique Weddings, told the website.

However, when Momoa walked by, Cooper seized upon a unique opportunity, asking the star to photobomb the couple as they posed for pictures. He did so, even “menacing” them by pointing a trident at them.

"He happily agreed to photobomb them,” Cooper told E!News. ”There just happened to be a kid on the beach nearby with that trident (in the picture),and Jason asked to borrow it. So he took the trident and went behind the couple in their picture and pretended to be a sasquatch.”

A guest, later sharing a picture with Momoa, called the actor the best wedding crasher ever, KTRK reported.

Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, visited an In-N-Out Burger restaurant in Fontana for lunch Friday, KOVR reported.

This was big. Or a big burger story. The customers thought so.

Several customers at the restaurant posted online photos of Hanks meeting with fans, the Daily Press of Victorville reported. Hanks also bought lunch for some of the customers and took selfies with them, KOVR reported. 

Hanks then walked to the drive-thru and bought lunch for some of the customers waiting in line, the television station reported.

Hanks has made no secret of his love for In-N-Out burgers, once notably telling talk-show host Conan O’Brien about the restaurant’s special language, the Daily Press reported.

“You have to say, give me a four-by-four animal style,” Hanks told O’Brien, according to the newspaper. “You have to speak a special language, if you know what I’m talking about.”

First photos of Will Smith’s Genie for live-action ‘Aladdin’ released

Fans of the Disney classic animated film can now get their first look at Will Smith in the iconic role of Genie. 

Smith, along with his costars, Naomi Scott and Mena Massoud, as Jasmine and Aladdin respectfully, grace the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly.

Despite the film going from traditional animation to live-action, the plot of the Guy Ritchie film stayed basically the same.

This time it is Smith, instead of a big blue Genie voiced by comedian Robin Williams, who grants Aladdin’s three wishes.

But there was one roadblock Smith and Ritchie needed to overcome, Williams himself. The original Genie and Williams were intertwined. But Smith believes he was able to put his own mark on the wish-granter, Entertainment Weekly reported.

“I started to feel confident that I could deliver something that was an homage to Robin Williams but was musically different,” Smith told Entertainment Weekly. “Just the flavor of the character would be different enough and unique enough that it would be in a different lane, versus trying to compete.”

Smith said he used his other on-screen personas to shape his take on Genie -- specifically those from “Independence Day,” “Bad Boys” and “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” Entertainment Weekly reported.

“Aladdin” will hit theaters May 24, 2019.
