Because the rape gang are pretty clearly with the bad guys? Pepe would have been with the good guys. It's not that hard to parse

 

Pretty easy to see.

Based on the reaction to trailer could this have had a chance at 100 million opening in normal times. Internet is living this. Forgot how much the original was a cult classic

It would open big but most people would still be there if it was just Lebron and Looney Tunes. It's not the first time people on the internet overestimate how much GA cares if there's a massive ip dump in your movie. Just a few years ago RPO was gonna be really big and the Ralph sequel was gonna explode because of Disney princesses. Both ended up doing just fine.

The Disney Princess plug in the Ralph sequel was so forced and shameless....made it more hilarious  how it didn't help Box office numbers for that  film.

I've had more friends text and ask me about this movie (that know I am into box office and film) than any movie in at least two years. Grain of salt obviously - my friends are a diverse, NBA loving group who grew up in the mid-90s - but this shit is blowing up

the interesting thing about Space Jam is that it wasn't even that big in theaters , it wasn't even in the top ten of its year. Though I did read somewhere that it was huge on VHS

As an 11-year old in 1997, I can attest to the original's VHS power. There's massive nostalgia among a WHOLE lotta people my age. There was also the soundtrack, which was absolutely massive. The trailer isn't any good but my first thought was "this will do very, very well."

After watching the trailer, I'm ready to put my Skip Bayless hat on and declare MJ > Lebron, officially. I was expecting much better line readings from Lebron than what we got

WB is making the Looney Tunes relevant again with the new shorts. I imagine the budget won't be more than $80-100m so Pikachu money would be more than good

 

Old message but:

It had a 100 millions in tax credit eligible spending in CA alone (the maximum it make sense tax credit wise), similar to say Netflix the Gray man or Bumblebee, add a very expensive above the line list of name and credits, but at the same time outside Lebron James seem to be a purely Los Angeles production, still look like a 120-130 or even 140m affair.

Don't watch much anymore but this show is fucking weird and contains some of the most creative stuff I've seen come out of the superhero genre.
