The Men in Black alum previously chatted with VIBE about what it was like to work on the upcoming flick.

“It’s a popcorn movie. It’s fun, it’s exciting. You laugh, you cheer, but really at the core of it, you’re laughing but it’s some powerful concepts in there,” he shared.

“What Mike is struggling with, and how he makes his way out of that… I just love being able to touch on those concepts and ideas. [Like] Mental health and then connect it to spirituality, all in a way that’s fun, so it is not getting hit over the head… I love being able to do that in a summer blockbuster," he continued.

The stars, who have been friends for a long time, also explained why their bond is so strong.

“Respect, love,” Lawrence shared. “This dude… for 30 years, I’ve learned a lot from him. When I was young on the first Bad Boys… I dealt with people in a certain way. I was maybe standoffish or whatever.”

“You was a little mean,” Smith quipped. “Let’s be honest.”

“Marty Mar is like the smoothest, sweetest, easiest… he’s just mellowed,” Smith added.
