“Home Alone” decided to reshoot: the first trailer

And literally everything in it raises questions.

Sometimes Hollywood's strategy raises perplexing questions. Of course, remakes of famous films, in particular, comedies, have the right to life. But it is unlikely that anyone in their right mind would think (although, who knows, maybe they will come) to make a remake of Chaplin's comedies without Chaplin or Harold Lloyd without Lloyd.

The same can be said for the films Home Alone (1990) and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992) with its great cast.

First, there was a brilliant , without exaggeration, Joe Pesci, a worthy pair of which was the second bandit performed by the textured Daniel Stern.

Secondly, 10-year-old Macaulay Culkin ideally fell into the role of a kind of tucked-up child with an angelic appearance, who is pushed around in the family by everyone who is not lazy & # 8212; the more unexpected is his transformation into an inventive winner of two robbers. And we are not talking about the gags, which in the second film have generally reached perfect perfection – remember at least the dive of the hero Pesci to extinguish his hair, head into the toilet, where young Culkin had previously poured a combustible mixture.

Even if we consider all this to be a subjective opinion, that is, objective figures. The first film in the Home Alone franchise grossed $ 476 million, the second – almost $ 359 million, and the third, with new actors, only $ 79 million. And this is not to mention the fourth and fifth films, which were not released at all, but only on TV. …

Again, one can argue that the third, fourth and fifth films were filmed without reference to the first two, and the new tape will be exactly what a remake of the first one – but what can be seen in the trailer is not impressive yet.

Is that the new film was shot in accordance with the “new political correctness” & # 8212; the main character is no longer a blond “angel” like Culkin, but, let's say, a “body-positive boy” with glasses, and one of the two robbers is a woman. But they have to do almost the same thing on the screen, which is like telling the same anecdote a second time in a familiar company.

True, usually even in this case at least one person in the company will laugh. Check out November 12th when the movie hits Disney +.
