The comedy will premiere in July 2017
Bad Moms is getting a spinoff: Bad Dads will be arriving in theaters July 14, 2017, STX Entertainment announced Monday.
Bad Moms — made on a $20 million budget — debuted at No. 3 with a healthy $23.8 million in July, and has since gone on to gross an impressive $112.9 million domestically and $175.4 million worldwide. The comedy, written and directed by The Hangover helmers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, features Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn as the titular mothers. Jada Pinkett Smith, Christina Applegate, and Annie Mumolo also star.
EW’s Chris Nashawaty gave the film an A-, writing, “Beneath all of its hard-R partying, rebellious debauchery, and profanity, it taps into something very real and insidious in the zeitgeist.” “It’s one of the funniest movies of the year,” he continued, “and one of the most necessary.”
In addition to Bad Dads, Bad Moms is also inspiring a reality television series and short form digital content. The male-driven spinoff’s cast has not yet been announced.
