The new film, “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” ruled the box office charts this past weekend. The new film features LeBron James with the animated Looney Tunes crew. Further, the film brought in 31.6 million in ticket sales.

Variety reported:

“The Warner Bros. sequel to 1996’s ‘Space Jam’ sailed past forecasts, which projected the film would bring in $20 million in its first three days of release. Critics rebuffed ‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ (it holds a bleak 31% average on Rotten Tomatoes), but audiences appeared to embrace the movie, awarding it an ‘A-‘ CinemaScore. ‘Space Jam 2’ played in 3,965 cinemas in North America, while being available on HBO Max at no extra charge to subscribers.”
