During a call to talk about third quarter earnings for The Walt Disney Company, chairman and CEO Bob Iger revealed some projects that were being planned for their upcoming streaming service Disney+ which come from the company’s acquisition of Fox’s entertainment assets.
We already knew that we’d be seeing things like Avatar and X-Men, but Disney has confirmed that some reboots for popular franchises including Home Alone, Night at the Museum, Cheaper by the Dozen, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid are on the way to the streaming service.
Many of you no doubt watched Home Alone this holiday season. Believe it or not, star Macaulay Culkin still gets to dust off some of those famous old tricks he pulled in the movie 27 years after it was first released.
At a recent wrestling event, Culkin, wearing a “Rowdy” Roddy Piper shirt, showed up at ringside during one of the matches and helped sway the match using said Home Alone tricks. He even got in the ring for a showdown with Swoggle—best known as Hornswoggle from his WWE days.
For the latest installment of their “8-Bit Cinema” series, CineFix has turned the holiday classic Home Alone into an 8-bit video game.
The game version of the movie is heavily inspired by The Legend of Zelda, with a bit of other games like Super Mario Bros. used for certain areas like the scary basement. Click on over to the other side now to check out the video.
If you’ve ever wondered how things were going for Kevin McCallister, the young boy from Home Alone who was forgotten at home when his family went on a trip to Paris, a new video has been released that answers that question for you.
Macaulay Culkin reprises his role as McCallister for the first episode of a new web series titled :DRYVRS, in which a man encounters strange individuals while using an Uber-like transportation service. And let’s just say things aren’t going all that hot for Kevin these days.
You can watch the video below if you so choose, but be warned, if you cherish Home Alone it might do a little damage to those happy feels you get watching it.
