Even LeBron James can't save the Warner Bros. sequel Space Jam: A New Legacy which opens in theaters everywhere on Friday, July 16.
The movie received some of the worst reviews of the year, according to reports.
One reviewer said the movie is vomit inducing. "[I]t all feels like Warner Bros. ingested an emetic and vomited up all their intellectual property."
CNN gave the movie a thumbs down:
"The first Space Jam was hardly a classic, which should temper expectations. Yet even by that standard, this marketing-driven exercise too often plays like the Acme version of it."
LeBron attended the Los Angeles premiere with his wife Savannah Brinson James and their daughter Zhuri James.
Space Jam 2 also stars Don Cheadle (pictured with his wife Bridgid); Cedric Joe, Wood Harris, and cameos by NBA and WNBA players Anthony Davis, Draymond Green, Damian Lillard, Klay Thompson, Sue Bird and Nneka Ogwumike.
