The 1990’s were filled with classic basketball movies; Space Jam, Hoop Dreams, He Got Game, and Above The Rim are just a few. White Men Can’t Jump is one of those films in that combined the love of basketball with amazing comedic performances from Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson. It was only a matter of time before a remake would be made.
That time is now with 20th Century Studios remaking White Men Can’t Jump as a modern remix of the iconic 1992 film that celebrates the streetball hustling culture of Los Angeles. Multi-platinum rap superstar Jack Harlow makes his movie debut as Jeremy, a former star of the game whose injuries stalled his career, and Sinqua Walls stars as Kamal, once a promising player who derailed his own future in the sport. Juggling tenuous relationships, financial pressures and serious internal struggles, the two ballers—opposites who are seemingly miles apart—find they might have more in common than they imagined possible.
20th Century Studios released a TV spot from White Men Can’t Jump today which you can check out below. The new movie will begin streaming on May 19, 2023, exclusively on Hulu in the U.S., Star+ in Latin America, and Disney+ under the Star banner in all other territories.
