Back in 1996, a little movie called Space Jam was released. Not only did it define the 90s, but many people who grew up in that era fondly remember it as a nostalgic fever dream that had no right to be as popular as it should have been. Now, 25 years later, a sequel has finally been released. Known simply as A New Legacy and starring LeBron James in place of Michael Jordan. Much like the original, A New Legacy combines animation with live-action, albeit with some updates to place itself in the annals of modern films. All in all, it is merely a shameless, self-aware exercise to see how many IPs can be in one film (It worked with Ralph Breaks the Internet and Ready Player One, so why not this?); some funny, some distracting, all just there for viewers to point and say “Oh, look who it is.”
After the hectic year that was 2020, we never thought that we would ever be going to the movies again. Yet, as of late, movie theaters (and businesses) have slowly, yet surely been in the process of reopening for the public anxious to go out and have a good time. Though it may still be a while before we reach normalcy, there are still some more movies to look forward to in the months to follow. As we get closer to the summer months, the choices of movies are still limited. Yet here are the movies I am most looking forward to as we reach the start of May all the way through August.
