Space Jam Is Returning to Theaters Next Month Because You Couldn't Keep Your Nostalgia In Your Pants
But I know art is subjective (that's what makes art so much fun to discuss!) and many enjoy the film and good for them I sincerely say. We all need happiness in our lives and maybe Space Jam devotees will find such an emotion when they experience Space Jam on the big screen next month, on November 13th and 16th specifically. Fathom Events is in charge of this re-issue just like they were the ones handling the limited theatrical re-release of Taxi Driver that happened this month. I think that's the first time Space Jam and Taxi Driver have ever been in any way connected.
So, before Space Jam 2 (presumably directed by Justin Lin and starring LeBron James) arrives in the next few years to slam-dunk its way into the hearts of millennials everywhere, check out the original "classic" desecration of the creations of the Termite Terrace crew, er, movie, on the big screen. It's the movie that's so 90's all it needs is parachute pants and an obsession with Goof Troop. And it's got a script that, as Foghorn Leghorn would put it, is about as sharp as a bowling ball. Oh, and do check out what some dude over at The Dissolve had to say about this 1996 feature!
