I am a longtime Space Jam fan. I saw the original in theaters! I owned the soundtrack! I will fight to this day that Bill Murray’s cameo in Space Jam is the best Bill Murray movie cameo of all time. All that being said, I don’t like the look of Space Jam: A New Legacy.
This trailer came out a week or so ago and it’s just…too much. It’s too crazy. All the colors, all the tunes, all the Warner Bros. properties. A lot of people have compared this trailer to Ready Player One, and it’s an apt comparison. This trailer is nuts!
But isn’t basketball about the fundamentals? Isn’t that a joke? What about the fundamentals of Space Jam? Or the Tune Squad? So yeah, the new movie looks really weird. And c’mon, they ended the trailer with a “Rapping Granny” trope! How despicable!
Anyway, Space Jam: A New Legacy arrives in theaters and HBO Max on July 16!
Space Jam is a cult classic. It is because I say it is. I still remember going to see it in the theaters. And even though I haven’t seen it in awhile, I’m pretty sure it still holds up. Unfortunately, the Honest Trailers people don’t think so!
Pffff, Space Jam features the best Bill Murray cameo of all time. It’s an all-time classic. Wile E. Coyote is an MVP!
Of all the random things you thought you might see today, I bet you didn’t expect test footage from live action versions of Hong Kong Phooey (the #1 super guy!) and Marvin the Martian! What do those two properties have to do with one another? Apparently they’re being made by director Alex Zamm. Or at least the Phooey one is still in production, with some kind of Eddie Murphy attached. Marvin the Martian has been cancelled though. At least according to Bleeding Cool.
Neat clips, at least!
