How much did Space Jam 2 make?
Box Office: 'Space Jam 2' Dunks On 'Black Widow' With $13.1 Million Friday. I cover the film industry. By normal standards, a $150 million sci-fi kid-friendly sequel like Malcom D. Lee's Space Jam: A New Legacy opening with “just” $13.1 million yesterday would be a slight underperformance. ForbesBox Office: ‘Space Jam 2’ Dunks On ‘Black Widow’ With $13.1 Million Friday
Is Michael Jordan's real family in Space Jam?
Is LeBron James' real family in 'Space Jam'? Jordan's family and real kids were not in the original, however their names (Jeffrey, Marcus, and Jasmine) were used. "New Legacy" features actors portraying James' family, with different names to highlight the fictional storyline. USA TODAY'Space Jam: A New Legacy' burning questions: Is that LeBron James' mansion? And his real family?
The family sequel — starring basketball great LeBron James — is expected to score $32 million-plus in its domestic debut for an easy win at the box office.
LeBron James is king of the box office this weekend, where Space Jam: A New Legacy is doing better than expected with its domestic debut reaching $32 million from 3,956 theaters, easily enough to bench holdover Black Widow.
The big-budget sequel to the 1996 classic movie grossed $13.2 million on Friday, while Black Widow fell a huge 80 percent to $8 million on its second Friday for a projected sophomore outing in the $26 million-$27 million range from 4,275 locations.
Space Jam 2 is on course to score the biggest opening for a family title in the pandemic-era despite poor reviews, growing concerns over the Delta variant and new mask mandates in L.A. County that kick in at midnight Saturday.
Heading into the weekend, Warner Bros. expected Space Jam 2 to open in the $20 million range. That would have been a problematic start for a movie that cost a reported $150 million to make. The film is being buoyed by an A- CinemaScore and an ethnically diverse audience.
The live-action/animated movie is also available on HBO Max. (Black Widow is likewise playing in the home via Disney Premier Access.)
In Space Jam 2, Brown encounters a plethora of classic Warner Bros. characters. Michael Jordan starred in the first Space Jam, which debuted to roughly $27 million without adjusting for inflation.
Black Widow is facing a huge drop in is second weekend of 65 percent-70 percent. The Marvel pic will still come in No. 2, followed by Sony’s Escape Room: Champion of Tournaments. The sequel opened to $3.8 million on Friday for projected $8.7 million weekend.
At the specialty box office, the new documentary Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain will make the top 10 with a projected weekend opening of $1.7 million or more for Focus Features after earning $760,000 on Friday from 927 theaters.
The doc about the famous chef, who died in 2018, sparked a debate over ethical issues last week when director Morgan Neville revealed he had used artificial intelligence to create a version of Bourdain’s voice for about 45 seconds.

He may be an NBA legend, but LeBron James‘ wife Savannah James still remembers him as a high school basketball player who took her on a first date to Outback Steakhouse. (More on that later.)
LeBron and Savannah (whose maiden name is Brinson) married in September 2013 and share three kids: sons Bronny and Bryce and daughter Zhuri. The Los Angeles Lakers player proposed to her on New Year’s Eve 2011. His friend and fellow NBA player, Dwyane Wade, helped with the proposal and held the pear-shaped diamond, which is worth a reported $300,000, the whole night until the ball dropped. LeBron proposed a few minutes after minutes after midnight, and Savannah said yes.
“I was nervous. It felt like before a finals game,” LeBron later told Oprah Winfrey in 2012. “I had been thinking about it for a while, but it just came to me one day and I was like, ‘This is a part of growth for me.’ This is the lady and the woman I have been with through all the good and all the bad. She’s been there for a long time and I wanted her to continue to be there with me, so I felt like at that moment it was time.”
The couple married at the Capella Chapel Grand Del Mar hotel in San Diego on September 14, 2013. The wedding was three days and included 200 guests including Wade, Gabrielle Union, Jay-Z and Ne-Yo. “He is truly a king to his queen, if you will,” Savannah told Cleveland Magazine in 2017 about her husband. “He treats me with so much respect — I mean, it’s hard to not love him, with the way that he is with me and the kids and his mom and just everyone who’s around him. He’s a really, really humble guy for everything that he has and everything that he’s done.” In 2021’s Space Jam: A New Legacy, Sonequa Martin-Green played a LeBron’s fictional wife, Kamiyah, who is based on Savannah.
So who is LeBron James’ wife, Savannah James? Well, according to Savannah’s Instagram bio, she’s a philanthropist and a business woman. In 2018, Savannah started a furniture line with American Signature called Home Court. In 2013, she opened a juicery called The Juice Spot in Miami. Though the store had good business, she closed it in January 2016 due to her busy schedule.
But perhaps Savannah is best known for her philanthropy work. In 2013, she founded the “I PROMise Makeover” event, which provided prom dresses for underprivileged teenagers. “I can’t imagine being in their situation and not have somebody help,” Savannah told USA Today in a past interview. “I really care. It’s really in my soul to help people, and this is the first baby to come from it,” she said, noting, “There comes a time when you have to give back.” She’s also a part of the LeBron James Family Foundation, which supports their hometown of Akron, Ohio, and has donated $41 million to the University of Akron students. Savannah is also the founder of a mentorship program called Women of Our Future.
However, it also seems like Savannah is busy at home. In an interview with Vogue in 2017, LeBron revealed that Savannah is in charge of the household while he’s away traveling most of the time. “I’m gone a lot, so she is the boss of the household; she’s the rule-setter,” he said. “It’s hard for me to go on the road for two and half weeks and then come home and tell my kids, ‘Look, this is how it should be done’ when she’s been home every day.”
So how did LeBron and Savannah meet? The couple met as teenagers in their hometown of Akron, Ohio. LeBron was a 17-year-old attending St. Vincent-St. Mary High School, where he had been recruited to play on their basketball team. Savannah, for her part, was a cheerleader and softball player at the rival high school. The couple met through a mutual friend, who told Savannah that LeBron asked for her phone number. “I’m like, ‘Um, nope. I’ll take his number,” she told Cleveland Magazine in 2018. “One day I’m sitting around — I was probably bored or something — and I’m like, ‘Oh, I forgot! I have this number for this guy that I can call. He seemed interested, so let’s see.’”
LeBron asked her out to a basketball game and then to dinner at an Outback Steakhouse. Savannah told Harper’s Bazaar in 2010 that she knew LeBron was special after she forgot her leftovers at the restaurant and LeBron brought them to her. “I’d totally forgotten about them, and he brought them to me. I think he just wanted another excuse to come and see me,” she said.
As for if Savannah knew what a big deal LeBron was in their town at the time, she told Harper’s Bazaar, “I had no idea who he was.” LeBron also confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter in 2018 that Savannah knew him long before he became the NBA star he is today. “Savannah was with me shooting in the gym when I [had] absolutely nothing,” he said. “[Savannah] was down when I was at my high school, no cameras, no lights. And she was there with me. You wouldn’t be talking to me right now if it weren’t for her.”
A year after LeBron graduated from high school, Savannah, who was a senior at the time, learned that she was pregnant with their first son, Bronny. Though the news was unexpected, LeBron and Savannah reassured each other that being parents wouldn’t affect their career paths. “’It’s not going to slow me down, and it’s not going to slow you down. We’re going to keep doing what we have to do,’” she told Harper’s Bazaar. Their first son, LeBron James Jr., was born in 2004, followed by another son, Bryce Maximus, in 2007, and a daughter, Zhuri, in 2014.
