LeBron James’ Space Jam: A New Legacy is the No. 1 movie in North America this weekend, earning $32 million in receipts in its debut weekend. The live-action and cartoon hybrid film is also streaming on HBO Max.
Space Jam: A New Legacy — a sequel to 1996’s “Space Jam” — also opened internationally with 23.01 million dollars in 63 markets this weekend for a global total of 54.66 million dollars. In the film, James and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue A.I. He must get them home safe by teaming up with Bugs Bunny and the whole gang of notoriously undisciplined Looney Tunes to victory over the A.I.’s digitized champions on the court.
Coming in at No. 2 is Black Widow with $26 million, followed by Escape Room: Tournament of Champions at No. 3 with $9 million, F9: The Fast Saga at No. 4 with $8 million and The Boss Baby: Family Business at No. 5 with $5 million.
