    If Coogler directed, the movie would still suck because the core concept is soulless.

    I'm a little disappointed he's producing. He's too talented to waste time on this shit.

    I wish there was another career model. The world doesn't need another Steven Spielberg / James Wan / Jason Blum wannabe. I wish more people---the quasi celebs and the pop auteurs --- would aspire to be something other than the best dressed whore in the penthouse.

    So he looks at a few production stills, nods his head at a few music nods, and continues on with his thing. No big deal.

    Very much the same (I think the amount of Space Jam toys, books and any other imaginable items I had were rivaled only by Star Wars, Muppets, and Toy Story) but whatever "Oh no don't touch this!", "Agh, not LeBron!" and "Why!?" type of feelings I have about it, I realize that the whole point of making this movie is pretty obviously that it isn't for us as much as it's for kids who are now the same age we were then?

    Mind you, walk into seemingly any store, notice the amount of Tune Squad, Space Jam, or even just Looney Tunes (with or without basketballs in hand) clothing and merch to this day, 22 years later, and you realize that it'll do its best to target us and anyone younger who's since connected with it too.

    Everything about this would be disappointing if the underlying concept wasn't already so dull.

    Never liked Space Jam.

    And agreed that this wastes Coogler's time and attention.

    If someone like Lord/Miller got involved, I'd be curious. But only just.

    Saw the first one in theaters and it was right during my 'obsessed with Ghostbusters' phase. So Bill Murphy being in it was perfect.

    Pretty much this.

    Who'd be the Bill Murray / Randy Newman now?

    Gotta be Kevin Hart for the short jokes alone, right?

    And was Wayne Knight really that randy in the original? Either way, I could see his role being someone with a built-in persona to easily insert like Jack McBrayer or Hannibal Buress (who, fun fact(!), played the Michael Jordan role in a live read of the original at TIFF a few years ago).

    There's a lot of hate in this trailer on the filmtwitter world, and it makes me wonder what they remember from the first movie.

    The Ready Player One callouts are apt, but still, it's intended for kids that'll probably be in the same situation 20 years from now as we are looking back at it. Hope it has a good soundtrack.

    Yeh I was cringing through this but there's no doubt this will make boat loads of money if the theaters are open.

    Speculating that a reanimated Michael Jordan gets in here to team up with LeBron.

    No evidence or anything that points to it. Just a guess that would make everyone check it out.

    Had to check to make sure Michael Jordan was alive.

    I sometimes wonder how used kids are to the fact that 80% of their pop culture is an '80s or '90s reboot.

    There are more eater eggs in that trailer than Ready Player One has total.

    Just in that screenshot above I see the Night King, Scooby Doo, The Flintstones dinosaur, The Joker, Catwoman, Robin, The white people from Mad Max Fury Road, Harvey Birdman?
