Nearly 25 years after the original “Space Jam” debuted, a sequel is finally arriving in theaters and on HBO Max. The new movie, titled “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” premieres on July 16. You can stream it for one month at no extra cost with HBO Max’s ad-free plan ($15/month).

The original movie starred basketball legend Michael Jordan, but the sequel features current NBA icon LeBron James as its new lead. In “Space Jam: A New Legacy,” James teams up with Warner Bros’ Looney Tunes characters for a basketball game against a group of digitized stars nicknamed the Goon Squad. The fate of James’ son, played by actor Cedric Joe, and the Looney Tunes themselves, will be decided by the outcome of the game.

Much like the original “Space Jam,” the Goon Squad characters are inspired by real NBA and WNBA players, including Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis, Diana Taurasi, and Nneka Ogwumike. “Space Jam: A New Legacy” also stars Don Cheadle, Khris Davis, and Sonequa Martin-Green.

Where to watch ‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’

“Space Jam: A New Legacy” will premiere in theaters and on HBO Max on July 16. To watch the movie at home, you’ll need the ad-free HBO Max plan. “Space Jam: A New Legacy” will be available to stream until August 17.

The HBO Max ad-free plan costs $15 a month for on-demand access to thousands of movies and TV shows. A cheaper, ad-supported plan is available for $10 a month, but it doesn’t include Warner’s theatrical releases.

‘In the Heights’ underwhelmed at the box office, but new data suggests it’s not HBO Max’s fault

in the heights usnavi
“In the Heights.”

  • “In the Heights” underwhelmed at the domestic box office over the weekend with $11 million.
  • But data suggests it also underperformed on HBO Max compared to other Warner Bros. movies this year.
  • That means a low theatrical turnout isn’t necessarily streaming’s fault, in this case.
  • See more stories on Insider’s business page.

“In the Heights,” the new movie based on the musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda, underwhelmed at the US box office over the weekend with $11.4 million.

Its haul was below projections that placed it closer to $20 million, and it failed to top “A Quiet Place Part II,” which has been in theaters for two weeks.

The Warner Bros. film, which was directed by “Crazy Rich Asians” filmmaker Jon M. Chu, was released simultaneously on the WarnerMedia streaming service HBO Max over the weekend, as are all of Warner Bros.’ films this year.

But data suggests that it’s not Max’s fault that the movie disappointed at the box office. It also underperformed on the streaming service compared to other new Warner Bros. movies.

693,000 US households watched at least five minutes of “In the Heights” on HBO Max over the weekend via connected TVs, according to estimates from the analytics company Samba TV. Samba TV tracks viewership on connected TVs, which include smart TVs, streaming devices like Roku, and gaming consoles (WarnerMedia declined to provide viewership numbers for “In the Heights.”)

Other Warner Bros. releases this year, which have performed better at the box office than “In the Heights” in their opening weekends, also drove more viewership on Max, according to Samba TV data. It suggests that streaming viewership doesn’t necessarily cannibalize theatrical attendance.

Here are four Warner Bros. movies this year that debuted in theaters and on Max simultaneously, and how their opening weekends compared on Max (via Samba TV estimates) and at the box office in the US:

  • “Mortal Kombat” – 3.8 million households on Max / $23.3 million at box office
  • “Godzilla vs. Kong” – 3.6 million households on Max (five-day weekend) / $48.5 million at box office (five days)
  • “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” – 1.6 million households on Max $24 million at box office
  • “Tom and Jerry” – 1.2 million households on Max / $14.1 million at box office

Warner Bros. head of domestic distribution Jeff Goldstein also implied “In the Heights” had underperformed relative to other releases in comments to the Associated Press on Sunday.

“Our experience, which is backed up on ‘In the Heights,’ is that if the movie hits a high level in theaters, it hits a high level on the service,” Goldstein said. “If it hits a low level in theaters, it hits a low level on HBO Max. They’re really very comparable.”

While “In the Heights” didn’t attract as big an audience in its debut as other Warner Bros. releases this year, it’s been a hit with critics and has a 97% Rotten Tomatoes critic score. Viewers who did see the movie also seemed to love it; it has a 95% Rotten Tomatoes audience score and an A from CinemaScore, which surveys theatrical audiences on a movie’s opening night. That means the movie could pick up steam from word-of-mouth buzz.

Warner Bros. has largely dominated the box office so far this year despite its movies also streaming, and “In the Heights” seems to be an exception.

The box office could look more balanced as more studios release delayed tentpole films this summer, though, including Disney’s “Black Widow” and Universal’s “Fast and Furious 9.”

What advertisers are saying about HBO Max’s new ad-supported tier

Hi and welcome to this weekly edition of the Insider Advertising newsletter. I’m Lucia Moses, deputy editor, and this week in advertising and media news:

“Wonder Woman 1984” debuts on HBO Max and in theaters on December 25.

Advertisers rate HBO Max’s ad-supported tier

The streaming services are in a race for subscribers, and WarnerMedia is counting on a new lower-cost, ad-supported tier to drive signups for HBO Max, which is among the more pricey of the streaming services.

But as Lindsay Rittenhouse and Patrick Coffee report, HBO Max is getting some blowback from advertisers who complain the rate is twice that of other leading streamers.

Those high ad prices could limit its revenue growth – but since the product is new, prices can change during negotiations, and WarnerMedia is already thinking of lowering its rates for larger ad buys, sources said.

A new PR rival emerges

PR has been a sleepy cousin of advertising, but investors and marketing companies are discovering newfound value in the industry.

Sean Czarnecki took a look at how one of them, Australian holding company Enero, is plotting an expansion to double its PR business through its flagship PR agency, Hotwire.

Enero is a fraction of the size of the big ad holding companies like WPP, Omnicom, and Interpublic Group, but it hopes to steal market share from their PR agencies.

Hiring tech-focused staff is hard, though, and other small to mid-sized players are equally eyeing expansion.

What’s next for Hollywood

The media industry is being upended by mega-deals, from Warner Bros. Discovery to Amazon buying MGM.

Legendary media investor Jonathan Nelson broke them down in a conversation with Claire Atkinson and laid out where he’s placing his bets these days.

Nelson explained why he thinks Hollywood is over, how the Amazon deal was a game-changer, and why WarnerMedia’s Jason Kilar’s controversial decision to release movies straight to streaming actually made sense.

Max (small)

“Wonder Woman 1984” is back on HBO Max, the same streaming service it premiered on in December 2020. The movie was the first in a series of Warner Bros. films made available for streaming the same day they hit the big screen.

Director Patty Jenkins and stars Gal Gadot and Chris Pine return for “Wonder Woman 1984.” The action picks up 40 years after the conclusion of 2017’s “Wonder Woman.” Kristen Wiig plays Cheetah, a villain who can match Wonder Woman’s superhuman abilities, and “The Mandalorian” star Pedro Pascal plays nefarious businessman Maxwell Lord.

HBO Max subscribers were given one month of exclusive access before “Wonder Woman 1984” was removed from the service and made available to buy from other providers, like Amazon, Vudu, and Google Play. “Wonder Woman 1984” was added back to the HBO Max library in May 2021 alongside other DC films like “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” and “Batman v Superman.”

Warner’s decision to debut its theatrical releases on HBO Max has already helped bring millions of new subscribers to the streaming service, and could influence other studios to pursue a similar course. Data from research startup Antenna showed that HBO Max signups increased 4.3 times during the weekend “Wonder Woman 1984” premiered.

How to watch ‘Wonder Woman 1984’

“Wonder Woman 1984” is currently available to all HBO Max subscribers; the streaming service costs $15 a month for commercial-free access to its library. A $10/month ad-supported plan will launch in June.

“Wonder Woman 1984” is also available to buy through video-on-demand (VOD) services, including Amazon, Vudu, FandangoNow, Microsoft, Google Play, and Apple TV. The movie costs $20 to own, and it’s offered in up to 4K Ultra HD quality. A rental option is not currently available. You can access your digital copy via the VOD service you select on various media players and smart TVs.

If you want to purchase a disc copy of the film, the “Wonder Woman 1984” Blu-ray ($22) and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray ($28) were released on March 30.

Does ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ support 4K, HDR, and Dolby Atmos?

“Wonder Woman 1984” was the first movie on HBO Max to stream in 4K with support for high dynamic range (HDR). The film is available in HDR10, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos on supported devices, matching the maximum quality typically seen on Netflix and Disney Plus.

The VOD version also offers Dolby Vision, HDR10, and Dolby Atmos playback though streaming services that support those features, including Vudu and Apple TV.

What other Warner Bros. movies are coming to HBO Max?

The next scheduled Warner Bros. release on HBO Max is “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It,” the third entry in the popular horror franchise. Other major releases set to arrive on the streaming service throughout 2021 include “The Matrix 4,” “The Suicide Squad,” “Space Jam” and more.
