It’s not uncommon for movie studios to recycle their sets between productions, or for different crews to make use of the same locations. For sharp-eyed viewers, this can create the surreal effect of fictional universes overlapping and coexisting with one another. Take Hogan’s Heroes, for instance: the company behind the popular POW camp-set sitcom put the compound on which they shot most of their episodes up for sale after they had wrapped. It was later used for numerous other shoots, most notably in the pornographic Nazi-exploitation film Ilsa, She-Wolf of the S.S.
This Home Alone revival just gets weirder and weirder. Recently, Macaulay Culkin reprised his role as Kevin McAllister from the classic holiday film for a YouTube short in which he plays a grown-up version of the character, now coping with PTSD and dreaming of taking revenge on the two robbers who traumatized him as a child. Now Daniel Stern has offered his own video response, reprising his role as Wet Bandit robber Marv to warn his old pal Harry that the kid is back and they’re in trouble.
Macaulay Culkin will forever be best known for his role as Kevin McAllister, the clever, quick-thinking, wise-cracking kid whose parents left him home alone not once, but twice during the holidays. The musician and semi-retired actor has emerged to star in a short for former Moldy Peaches’ guitarist Jack Dishel’s new YouTube series, the first episode of which examines the life of Home Alone’s Kevin, all grown up and no longer home or alone.
Home Alone was released in theaters on November 16, 1990. It was the #1 movie at the box office for an incredible 12 straight weeks. It stayed in the Top 10 until April. It played in theaters for nine months and earned over $477 million making it the highest grossing live-action comedy of all-time. (At least until The Hangover Part 2 came along). This is just one of the Home Alone facts in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
A little boy’s family accidentally leaves him at home while they go on Christmas vacation, and two robbers try to invade the home, leaving the boy to fend for himself. That description of ‘Home Alone’ definitely sounds like it could be a horror thriller, and thanks to this new video, we now know what this holiday classic would look like if it were actually a horror flick.
If you tried to describe the violent holiday classic ‘Home Alone’ to someone who had never seen it, they might wonder why it’s considered a “must watch” at Christmas time. Watching the precocious...
Macaulay Culkin is a hot mess. He's such a hot mess, in fact, that people think he's a homeless man instead of the former child star of 'Home Alone.' But here's something you might not know about the actor -- he's 32, which is the same age actor Daniel Stern was when he portrayed Marv in 1990's 'Home Alone.' It's only fitting that the two now look alike.
Not too many people realize this, but there's more than just two films to the 'Home Alone' series. There's actually four movies already made and now a fifth one is on the way from ABC Family, titled 'Home Alone 5: Alone in the Dark'. The fairly popular television network is planning to release the latest movie during December of this year.
