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!
