Film critics say Space Jam: A New Legacy starring LeBron James is one of the worst movies ever made. I’m going to trust the experts on this one so that I can avoid watching it myself.
In LeBron’s mind though, it doesn’t matter how bad the film is. As long as it blows up at the box office, any humiliation would be worth it. However, the film isn’t on track to be the financial success LeBron and WarnerBros. had hoped either because China has yet to greenlight the film for release.
This is particularly humorous as LeBron has pledged allegiance to Chairman Xi for more than three years for the sake of Space Jam‘s revenue.
Without China, Space Jam 2 is likely to lose several hundred million dollars. As Clay Travis noted on Twitter, Space Jam cost $200 million to make and market and is expected to earn only $60-70 million without a release in China.
