What’s significant for Space Jam: A New Legacy specifically, however, is that it is yet another major 2021 summer blockbuster to suffer a major drop in its second week of release. F9 and Black Widow both fell 67 percent in their respective second Friday-to-Sundays, and the LeBron James/Looney Tunes movie has fallen 69 percent. Once again this seems like a case where streaming might be a factor to be blamed, as the movie is one of the Warner Bros. titles that has gotten a day-and-date release on HBO Max. Between the new Marvel movie and Space Jam 2, there is a picture being painted that audiences who really want the big screen experience will go opening weekend, but that everyone else in subsequent weeks are happy to just watch at home. It doesn’t seem like it’s a very positive thing for the industry, and not helping anything is the murkiness that exists when it comes to studios reporting streaming numbers.
