Bugs Bunny and his friends remain a hit after all these decades — with some help from current NBA star LeBron James.
“Space Jam: A New Legacy,” which teams up Mr. James with the Looney Tunes characters, topped the box office last weekend.
The movie earned $31.7 million at the box office, and “Black Widow” fell to second place at $26.2 million, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
“Space Jam” did better than expected, and “Black Widow” fell short of expectations. The latter experienced a 67 percent decline, the worst among the Marvel movies released by Disney.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Space Jam” had the biggest opening during the pandemic for a family-friendly film.
The first “Space Jam,” which teamed up Michael Jordan with the Looney Tunes, was released in theaters in 1996.
