The cartoon basketball sequel became king of the box office over the weekend, but received extremely low ratings from viewers.
The movie “Space Jam: A New Legacy” starring basketball player LeBron James was able to raise $ 31.7 million at the US box office in the early days of the show, reports the Hollywood Reporter. Thus, “Marvel’s” film comics “Black Widow” moved to second place from $26.3 million. The box office of a superhero movie has plummeted by 67% at once, which is the biggest drop among any Marvel films released by Disney.
Space Jam 2 has been able to become the highest-grossing family movie since the onset of the cononavirus pandemic. But the film’s ratings are poor. On Rotten Tomatoes, critics left only 31% of positive reviews for the sequel.
Compared to the first part with Michael Jordan, released in 1996, the new film has a lot more animation. Even LeBron himself remains a “cartoon” for most of the screen time, and the basketball game, which was supposed to be a bright climax, lasts half of the entire film.
