“Kevin – Home Alone” remake
“Kevin – Alone at Home” gets a new edition. Will Macaulay Culkin be in it? The actor now takes a stand.
It has been over 30 years since Macaulay Culkin (41) became a star with the movie “Home Alone”. The comedy with the original title “Home Alone” from 1990 is now considered a Christmas classic. Just in time for Christmas 2021, the new adventure comedy “Home Sweet Home Alone” will be available at Disney +. With a story that is very similar to the original.
There have been rumors for the past few months that Culkin may have a brief cameo. Now the actor commented on it. He explained on Twitter: “Hello everyone. Just a note, as I have been asked this question many times today: I am NOT in the new ‘Home Alone’ reboot”. Nevertheless, he wishes everyone involved good luck, added the 41-year-old.
This is what “Home Sweet Home Alone” is all about
His family leaves Max Mercer (Archie Yates, 12) alone in the new film while they spend the holidays in Japan. A couple is aiming for an heirloom in the Mercer’s house – and Max now has to defend himself against the intruders. A first trailer shows the boyattacking the couple with projectiles or a trampoline while his mother Carol (Aisling Bea, 37) tries to get home as soon as possible.
After 45 seconds, a special character appears in the trailer: Devin Ratray (44), who originally played Kevin’s brother Buzz, shows himself in a blue police uniform with the inscription McCallister, the family name of Kevin and Buzz. Apparently he wants to see that things are going well in the Mercer’s house. The fact that the harassing and nasty brother is now acting as a police officer provides a special twist. “Home Sweet Home Alone” will be available from November 12th.
