The first official trailer for “Space Jam: A New Legacy” was dropped this weekend – and it shows LeBron James landing not just in the world of Looney Tunes for a basketball game “do or die” … but in a world full of classic movie characters drawn by hand or otherwise.
In the new teaser you see LeBron and collaboration. on a basketball court in a stadium-like setting – which is full of real human cameos from similar Damian Lillard,, Anthony Davis,, Clay Thompson and Diana Taurasi, but there are also great pantheons from the cinematic universe, scattered everywhere … like “Batman”, “Mad Max”, “Scooby Doo”, “GOT” … and strangely, “A Clockwork Orange”. .
Yes, we’re talking about Alex and his band Droogs – known for their all-white outfits and hats. And even more famous (or scandalous) is their brutal rape scene in 1971. Kubrick a film that is depicted in graphic detail … and is definitely NOT suitable for families in any way.
Many people quickly noticed the presence of Droogs … and wondered why they were involved in the film at all, given the nature of their script. There don’t seem to be many explanations at the moment, except for “Space Jam”, which packs as many memorable movie characters into the plot … “Ready Player One” style.
Of course, the inclusion of Droogs makes you wonder … if they’re inside, why Pepe outside?
You will remember … Pepe’s predatory approach to Penelope Pusicat was recently put under a microscope and even resembled perpetuating the culture of rapewhich caused mixed reactions. It is quite interesting that it was reported that Pepe found himself getting a touch from the new “Space Jam” script entirely after some deliberation. It’s not clear if the criticism of “rape” has anything to do with it directly … but it seems likely that the executive directors of the World Bank have already thought about it.
Pepe was included in OG “Space Jam” – but doesn’t seem to be anywhere in the sequel, something that has made some people dumbfounded about priorities and decision-making, especially if Droogs was given the green light to appear.
