One year after the original Space Jam, Space Jam: A New Legacy is a standalone sequel to the 1996 original. The first film starred Michael Jordan, who was forced to play basketball against space aliens alongside a team of Looney Tunes characters. In contrast, the new movie stars LeBron James, who is forced to play a Goon Squad of superpowered basketballers to save his son from an AI gone rogue to keep him.
Even though Space Jam: A New Legacy is still playing in theatres, Warner Bros has decided to distribute the picture digitally early. In other words, tomorrow (August 23).
The film will only be available for digital rental starting tomorrow. On October 11, you can purchase it as a digital download, while the DVD and Blu-ray disc release date is October 25, 2018.
To save the world from an evil artificial intelligence, played by Marvel Cinematic Universe star Don Cheadle, LeBron James teams up with the Looney Tunes for a basketball game.
Many reviews said the picture wasn’t as brilliant as its predecessor, lacking inventiveness and humour.
As a result, it’s difficult to digest the idea of a slew of crossovers that don’t have any jokes attached to them. A comedy that brings in high-profile appearances and forgets to give them a joke beyond ‘Oh, look, it’s that man I recognise. ” So reads our assessment of the movie.
There are moments of wild humour from the previous film, including a wonderfully creative and hilarious appearance, making it all the more irritating. However, as long as you overlook Pennywise, the Droogs, the Night King, and other villains in the audience, there’ll be enough of Looney Tunes mayhem to appreciate during Sunday’s game.”
Remastered and loaded with bonus features, the original film has also been re-released on a 4K Blu-ray disc. It will be available on Movies Anywhere as well. As long as you have an account with one of the partner digital retailers linked to your Movies Anywhere account, you’ll have access to all of your eligible movies.
Nifty’s, the social NFT platform, will extend its cooperation with Warner Bros. to introduce the second series of limited-edition NFTs inspired by the film as part of the agreement.
