LeBron James seems pretty happy with the box office response to Space Jam 2 despite critics ripping the movie to shreds.

Earlier this week before the release of Space Jam: A New Legacy, movie critics took turns lambasting LeBron’s new flick being a long ad for Warner Bros properties.

According to Deadline, LeBron’s version of Space Jam is making a ton of money in the box office while it’s also available for streaming on HBO Max.

The results squash the second Friday and anticipated weekend of Disney/Marvel’s Black Widow,

Space Jam: A New Legacy‘s opening reps the biggest for Warner Bros. during the pandemic, besting Godzilla vs. Kong‘s 3-day of $28.2M and the best opening for a family movie. The pic is also available day-and-date in homes on HBO Max
