“Slam dunk in the air” is a very big sports IP. Jordan and Bugs Bunny brought 230 million box office revenue and billions of dollars of peripheral revenue to Warner Group in the 1990s. With the success of the film, Jordan has been upgraded from a legendary athlete to a global idol, and even a pop culture symbol of an era.
LeBron was invited to make a film sequel 15 years ago, but he didn’t think he was qualified and was afraid of being said to imitate Jordan. Now he doesn’t care. He knows who he is and what he wants. LeBron has been making movies for the past two years off-season and has had a hard time. According to his own disclosure, he often has to train for two hours at 3:30 in the morning, and then he has to go to the studio to prepare for filming, and often shooting until midnight.
“Slam dunk in the air 2” will be released in North American Theaters on July 16, which is also one of the first local movies to welcome cinema audiences.
