Released in 1996, the original Space Jam film told the story of the Looney Tunes’ efforts to win a basketball competition after the beloved cartoon characters challenge alien invaders to a game in order to secure their freedom. However, the aliens steal the talent of professional basketball players and transform into the dreaded Monstars, prompting the Looney Tunes to recruit Michael Jordan onto their team. LeBron James is expected to play a similar role in the Space Jam sequel, which arrives in theaters and on HBO Max on July 16th.
Meanwhile, Godzilla vs Kong is the culmination of three films in Legendary’s MonsterVerse franchise that began with Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla in 2014. It was followed by the Jordan Vogt-Roberts-directed Kong: Skull Island, which established the shared cinematic universe. In 2019, Michael Doughterty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters continued the series, with more nods to the MonsterVerse including King Kong’s existence. Godzilla vs Kong is set to released on March 26th.
