Michael Jordan's 'Space Jam' is Coming Back to Theaters



    Michael Jordan poses with a cutout of Bugs Bunny at a news conference in 1995 where Warner Bros. announced that Jordan would join Bugs, and other members of the Looney Tunes family in an original live action/animation feature called "Space Jam." 20 years later, the movie is coming back to theaters.

    Michael Jordan, Bugs Bunny and friends are returning to the court, and theaters, to mark the 20th anniversary of "Space Jam."

    The 1996 basketball-themed adventure, which combined the real life Jordan with animated Looney Tunes characters, will be back on screens in select theaters for two days next month. Fathom Events and Warner Bros. say the screenings will take place on Sunday, Nov. 13, and Wednesday, Nov. 16.

    Basketball greats Larry Bird, Charles Barkley and Patrick Ewing also appear in the film, as does Bill Murray, who joins with Jordan to defeat a team of aliens.
