Must they destroy everything we love? Every second of the day, it feels like we're hearing news of reboots and it's starting to genuinely upset us.

The latest reboot is set to be literally the world's favourite Christmas movie; Home Alone. 

A new streaming service called Disney+ is set to launch in America in November, but announced that Kevin McAllister will return “reimagined for a new generation”.

New versions of Night At The MuseumDiary of a Wimpy Kid and Cheaper By The Dozen are also set to be recreated, so…we march at dawn? Grab your pitchforks.

Disney+ hasn't revealed any further details, or a release date for any 20th Century Fox classics they're dabbling with.

Macaulay Culkin, who played Kevin McAllister in the original film, had something to say about the matter and we had to laugh.

"This is what an updated Home Alone would actually look like," he wrote, alongside a photo of him eating pasta on his couch, on his laptop like every one of us on Sunday nights.

He later added, "Hey Disney, call me!" Twitter were up in ARMS about the terrible news, with social media users asking; "If it ain't broke, why fix it?" It's perfection as it is.

Paris Jackson, daughter of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, is seeking treatment for issues relating to her emotional and mental health.

According to Entertainment Tonight, Paris is currently living in a mental health facility following a whirlwind year of work engagements, new music releases, photoshoots and public appearances.

A source spoke to ET, saying; "After a busy year of work engagements that took her all over the globe, Paris decided that she needed to take some time off to reboot, realign and prioritize her physical and emotional health."

"She checked herself into a treatment facility to aid in her wellness plan and is looking forward to coming out of this revitalized and ready to tackle the exciting new projects that await her," the insider added.

The young model suddenly ceased sharing any images on social media from the middle of December, and failed to join her family on holiday in Toyka over Christmas.

This is an unusual move for the star, who is very close with her younger brothers especially. Her followers then began to speculate that her mental health may have been suffering.

The 20-year old has had a manic year career-wise, and had to face the heartbreaking death of her grandfather Joe Jackson.

She has been hugely sought after in the fashion world, and since her Hollywood debut, it's apparent that the youngster is a new 'It Girl' on the scene.

Paris last hit the headlines in September 2018 for calling out paparazzi who were verbally attacking her as she left a New York Fashion Week event.

She has regularly discussed her struggles with self-confidence and depression, which drove her to attempt to commit suicide for the first time when she was only 13-years-old.

She later attempted to take her own life again aged 15 multiple times, leading her to enter a therapeutic school;

"I was going through a lot of, like, teen angst. And I was also dealing with my depression and my anxiety without any help," she told Rolling Stone in 2017. 

Hopefully she's getting the help she needs.

A documentary focusing on sexual abuse allegations made by two men against the late King of Pop Michael Jackson will be aired this spring.

Leaving Neverland features stories told by two men who claim to have been abused by Jackson when they were kids.

Channel 4 commissioned the documentary and say it will be shown on TV in two-parts, to be premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in late January.

A portion of the Sundance website reads;

"At the height of his stardom Michael Jackson began long-running relationships with two boys, aged 7 and 10, and their families. Now in their 30s, they tell the story of how they were sexually abused by Jackson, and how they came to terms with it years later."

Michael Jackson's estate sent a statement to Variety saying;  “This is yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson.”

In 2005, the former child star was acquitted of child molestation charges. Close personal friend and actor Macaulay Culkin was among those who stood on the stand to defend him.

Amos Pictures are creating the film and Dan Reed is heading the production. Reed created the BAFTA award-winning documentary The Paedophile Hunter as well as From Russia with Cash.

The documentary will air on HBO in America in the same week that it airs on Channel 4 in the UK, but no date has been set as of yet.

Behold; a series of tweets showing every sibling relationship ever.

Anyone who has a brother or sister knows that, even if they achieve something as magnificent as a Golden Globe nomination, you just HAVE to slag them. You have to.

The roast began with Macaulay Culkin sitting down to watch his brother, Kieran Culkin, at the lucrative awards ceremony last night.

He started off pretty tame, observing his brother's presence and pretending not to know that he was nominated. We'd all do it, let's be honest.

PG enough:

His bro was there as part of the TV drama Succession, which earned him a nomination.

Then he even throws in a compliment, calling his bro 'handsome';

He even spots his brother in the distant crowd, hiding among the celebs; 

He then spells his brother's name wrong, which we're assuming was a joke but who even knows?

He tries to use him for Twitter follower purposes, which is relatable content.

If our brother was at a ceremony filled with celebs we'd force him to track them all down for autographs and follower requests:

Then he joked that he never answers his calls, which is why he seemingly had no clue that his brother had been nominated. Bit of a gas, but we hope he's joking…

We're appreciating the comedic content, we really are.

He finished off with a show of support for his brother, despite the fact that he didn't win. Except he also claims to have been supporting another actor…LOL:

We're positive that Kieran is well aware of the fact that he didn't win… but sure look, sure listen.

Typical sibling bonding right there, no apologies ever to be made for the vicious roasting.

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.

Macaulay Culkin may forever be better known as the 10-year-old child actor who stole the show in one of our favourite Christmas films of all time, Home Alone. 

And though he sort of dropped off the radar as he got older, he has now returned in a new web series reprising his role as a grown up Kevin McCallister. 

And if you thought that being left at home alone by your family TWICE on Christmas would be pretty traumatic, you would be dead right. 

It seems our grown up, foul mouthed Kevin is  harbouring some serious psychological issues as we see in the pretty crazy first episode. 

"I had to fend off my house from two psychopath home invaders," says the grown up Kevin.

"I mean, I still have nightmares about this bald weirdo dude chasing me around talking like Yosemite Sam."

Watch the bizarre first episode below (beware this is NSFW):

As Christmas movies go, Home Alone has a fairly straightforward plot line. Kevin McCallister gets left home alone by his family, antics ensue. 

But there's been one detail in the movie that has always annoyed us a little… and lots of other people too, it would seem.

Early on in the movie, a storm causes trees to fall on phone lines, meaning Kevin can't contact his mum and dad to let them know he's okay.

And yet later in the film, he successfully orders a cheese pizza (and manages to terrify the delivery man in the process).

So, before the days of mobile internet and all that jazz, how on earth did Kevin make a phone call with a broken phoneline?

Well, you'll sleep easy tonight because we've finally solved the mystery… with the help of some logical thought from a Reddit user on a thread about movie plot holes.

"I always assumed the tree actually severed the main trunk line to the whole town, but local calls within the same exchange still worked," the quick-thinking Home Alone fan wrote.

To set the record straight, the Huffington Post contacted American telecommunications company AT&T, who says the theory is definitely a solid one.

"Everything is changing now because of all this phone capability is moving into the cloud, but in 1990, that was absolutely a plausible scenario," spokesperson said.

"When you're trying to call from Paris, now you're relying on a whole series of connections including undersea cables, any one of which could have a problem, which would prevent you from reaching some particular telephone number."

Plot hole or not, that pizza scene is still one of our faves, for this line alone:

It seems we aren’t the only ones to gush over the gorgeous Ryan Gosling, as actor Macaulay Culkin decided to show off his love for the star with this amazing t-shirt.

The t-shirt features a picture of Ryan from a year ago, who was famously photographed for wearing a t-shirt, which happened to have a picture of Macaulay as a child star.

Whether Macaulay was poking fun at Ryan or just loves the actor as we much we do, we just want to know one thing.

Where can we get one?!
