Peeking Behind The Scenes Of Space Jam Will Change How You Feel About This Classic 90s Movie

Space Jam is one of the greatest movies ever made. I don't think there will be anyone who disagrees with me, but it needed to be said just in case. Space Jam stars all of your favorite Looney Tunes alongside all your favorite basketball stars and the combination is truly marvelous.

You've got to hand it to the people who made this, it was pretty impressive. Given that Michael Jordan wasn't a professional actor at all and managed to do this whole movie alone, on what was essentially only green screens, is shocking. Seeing pictures from behind the scenes will probably make you appreciate Jordan's acting skills quite a bit.

I mean, how well could you act if this is what you were working it:

At least he had the benefit of knowing what Bugs and friends look like and their personalities, but that doesn't make it all that much easier.

Even when he was playing basketball he had a group of people chasing him around in green onesies so he would have an idea of the general spacing he needed.

The people had to stand on supports to make them tall enough to represent the Monstars.

How weird do you think it felt to play basketball in a weird green room against green humans?

It's so bizarre seeing the behind the scenes of a movie like this. While you of course know that the movie is green screen, Bugs Bunny is just one of those characters that feels like he just might be real. Maybe it's just me...

You can see some old footage from the filming below.

Now I want to go watch Space Jam again... Or at the very least go explore the website which has not changed since 1996.

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.


You Can Live In The '10 Things I Hate About You' House And It's Actually Amazing

We all remember watching 10 Things I Hate About You in the late 90s and becoming completely obsessed with Kat Statford's rebel style, or Bianca's collection of cute sundresses. The Stratford sisters were iconic for us, and we can all admit that part of the reason was their absolutely epic house. So many moments in that movie took place in that home, and it just felt like the most iconic and idyllic place for this story to unfold. I don't know how many times I thought that it would be comfortable to sit on the porch of my house and


Edward Furlong Was A Rising Star, But His Life Took A Drastic Turn That's Left Him Unrecognizable

The former teen idol had roles in iconic movies like Terminator 2: Judgement Day, American Heart, and Pet Sematary, but now Edward Furlong's name is barely remembered. The forgotten actor was on the road to becoming a huge star, with an enormous career ahead of him, but what happened to derail such a successful career?He was first discovered in the early 90s, when he was cast as John Connor in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. He truly stole the show and held his own against Arnold, and managed to nab a few awards for being a breakthrough actor. TriStar PicturesThe


The Preview For The New 'Grinch' Movie Is Out And We Can't Decide How Angry To Be

Listen, I get it, remakes are easy money. You've got a built-in audience who will try to support it no matter what, but there comes a time when enough is enough right? Sure, the Jim Carrey version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas was already a remake of the original cartoon that we all grew up with, but then we had both. One perfect cartoon that gave us the exact telling of the book, and then one amazingly hilarious live-action version that expands the world we already loved. That was enough though. One of each. Live-action, perfect. Cartoon, classic. That's
