WB vid push ‘Jam’-packed

Warner Bros. Home Video will release the eagerly awaited “Space Jam” on homevideo March 11. To herald the arrival of the title, the studio will implement a full-court marketing press.

The animated-live action pic starring Michael Jordan has grossed more than $102 million worldwide.
