The first trailer for the Home Alone reboot called Home Sweet Home Alone has dropped and fans are getting some nostalgic excitement. Set for release on the 12th of November 2021, the adventure comedy stars Archie Yates as the lead boy Max Mercer who gets left behind as his family jets off to Japan for their holiday.
The house is subsequently infiltrated by a couple played by Ellie Kemper and Rob Delaney who are attempting to make away with a priceless heirloom. The film seems to be giving a couple of nods to the original Home Alone franchise. Even original actor Macauley Culkin is set to make a cameo appearance, but it is as of yet unconfirmed.
Of course, the reactions were mixed. Some are praising it for its stellar cast whilst others just want classics to be left untouched. We’ll have to see if this movie lives up to the expectations, whether it creates something new or whether it was better to not touch the franchise at all.
