Mark Saturday August 15 in your calendar people as the legendary and iconic movie Space Jam will finally appear on Netflix Australia.
The streaming service has unveiled its August offerings and it looks like it's going to be a bumper month.
Get ready for these highlight titles, new on Netflix next month. True crime series #DirtyJohn returns with the story of Betty Broderick, @IAmJamieFoxx stars in twisty superhero film #ProjectPower, and more... pic.twitter.com/0r0v21pzrX- Netflix ANZ (@NetflixANZ) July 22, 2020
While we might have to wait until the middle of the month to receive the epic film starring Michael Jordan and Bugs Bunny, there will be loads of things that will debut before.
We'll get the Academy Award winning movie Forrest Gump on August 1, followed by the third season of the incredibly addictive series Selling Sunset on August 7, a follow up to the binge-worthy series Dirty John: The Betty Broderick Story on August 14, and the fifth season of Lucifer on August 21.
There will be plenty more shows and movies to be added to Netflix Australia, but these are the big hitters.
But it's going to be very enjoyable to watch Space Jam anytime we're hungover, bored, looking for a nostalgic hit to the senses or just want to see it again.
While critics were mixed on the movie, it was an instant classic with audiences across the world. It opened at number one on the box office in North America and grossed more than $230 million worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing basketball film of all time.
If you haven't seen it (lord help you), it's all about Michael Jordan being sucked through a hole on a golf course by Bugs Bunny. The famous wabbit explains to the Chicago Bulls legend that he has to play on their team to help them defeat the Nerdlucks (who are trying to kidnap Bugs and his mates) in a game of basketball.
I know, I know, it sounds ridiculous. But it's a wild and very enjoyable ride.
If you enjoy the film, then you'll be very delighted to know that we're getting a sequel, which is meant to premiere next year.
Warner Bros. has confirmed that the next instalment to the franchise will be released July 16, 2021. But instead of Michael Jordan, it will be LeBron James being the star of the show.
