Space Jam: A New Legacy tops US box office

The sequel starring LeBron James took $31.6m in its opening weekend dislodging Marvel’s Black Widow from the top US box office spot.

A joint streaming release, Space Jam: A New Legacy has set a pandemic-era record for a family film, despite lukewarm reviews. The live-action/animated basketball film – a sequel to the 1996 original starring Michael Jordan – sees NBA star LeBron James team up with the Looney Tunes characters to save his son.
