White Men Can’t Jump
*20th Century Studios has released a first-look image and TV spot from “White Men Can’t Jump,” which begins streaming on May 19, 2023, exclusively on Hulu.
The new image comes with a fresh new TV spot that debuted last night during the 65th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Rapper Jack Harlow was cast as the lead in the remake of the 1992 sports comedy, marking his acting debut. The remake is helmed by award-winning music video director Calmatic, who made his feature directorial debut with the recently released “House Party” remake.
Per the studio’s official synopsis: From 20th Century Studios,’ the all-new comedy “White Men Can’t Jump” is 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.
