Warner Bros. has released a new official trailer for Space Jam: A New Legacy and… it’s not good. I know that’s probably not a huge shocker for anyone who saw the first trailer, but yeah, this looks like trash.
I know a lot of people say that the original Space Jam is also hot garbage and that we’re just blinded by nostalgia, but I want to know anyone who would rather watch this steaming pile of multiverse trash than the small-scale and delightful ’90s original.
Yet, I cannot help but feel sorry for the Looney Tunes who were clearly roped into this whole mess LeBron James being unable to bond with his son. I liked it better when the Looney Tunes were the ones who had screwed up and needed to recruit an NBA all-star to help them out of their mess.
Also, what’s the over-under on LeBron James leaving the match early after the Tune Squad is down a few points? Sigh, who am I kidding, I know I’ll probably go see this in theaters. But a little part of me wishes that Warner Bros. would figure out their shit and actually start working on compelling standalone films that aren’t a stealth attempt at launching a cinematic universe/multiverse.
Space Jam: A New Legacy hits theaters and HBO Max on July 16, 2021.
What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
