Since 1990 when the first Home Alone movie graced our screens and changed our lives forever, the nostalgia has been building.

We've waited SO LONG to see Macaulay Culkin give us more Home Alone magic, and now our wishes have been granted, courtesy of Google.

Yes, Google have somehow persuaded the former child star to recreate some of the film's classic scenes, and it's as special as you might imagine.

The actor tweeted the 'Hey Google' ad yesterday, and sent the internet into mayhem;

It seems that Peter and Kate McCallister's parenting skills haven't improved in 30 years, but we're sure that raising about 2930282 children in a beautiful twelve-level house can't be as simple as it appears.

I mean, we've all gone and holiday and forgotten something vital. We've never forgotten a child, but sure look. Each to their own.

“Have you ever wondered what Kevin McCallister is like as an adult?,” Macaulay tweeted, and from the looks of things, he's pretty much the exact same.

Google is essentially helping him out this time around, so he doesn't have to fend off any burglars all on his lonesome. There are a few differences for Kevin as an adult, for one, he actually has a need to shave this time.

He puts out his back while jumping on the bed, much like the rest of us. He's not a kid anymore, SOB.

Culkin has retrofitted his gaff to be a super smart home, so there's no ingenious traps needed. Google implies that when you have a voice-activated tech assistant, warding off thieves is pretty damn easy.

Have a look at Kevin McCallister in all his adult glory, we're busy exploding with wistful thoughts of the blissful 1990s:

Keep the change, ya filthy animals.


Less than two months after the death of original Willy Wonka star, Gene Wilder, it looks like a new Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie could be on the way.

But unlike the last two flicks to be inspired by Roald Dahl’s beloved book, the potential reboot will explore Willy Wonka’s mysterious past.

According to Variety, Warner Bros. are joining forces with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them producer, David Heyman, to create a movie which centres on Willy Wonka himself.

Sources say the entertainment giant has already acquired the rights to the Willy Wonka IP from the Roald Dahl Estate, but currently it is unclear as to which of the novel’s other characters will make an appearance in the film.

While many are eager to learn where the legendary chocolatier actually came from, others have taken to Twitter in opposition of move.

Many online commentators say no version of the film could live up to the original 1971 version, while others believe the movie industry as a whole needs to focus on developing new characters instead of placing classic personas in new situations.
