Disney released the first trailer from Home Sweet Home Alone, the reboot of the classic Christmas film that arrived in Italy with the title of Mom I missed the plane.
Although this is officially a reboot of the saga, the trailer seems to suggest that it will be more than a remake of the first film, with the same storyline albeit with different actors and different traps.
The trailer for Home Sweet Home Alone, the reboot of Mom I missed the plane
Yes, I know. It’s a stupid idea to make a remake of a film that is still very enjoyable today and, sorry for Archie Yates, which I really enjoyed in Jo Jo Rabbit and I’m sure it will give some funny moments in this film too, it seems that Chris Columbus’s film was on a completely different level.
The film also stars Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Rob Delaney (Deadpool 2), Aisling Bea (Living with Yourself), Kenan Thompson (Saturday Night Live), Tim Simons (Veep), Pete Holmes (The Secret Life of Pets 2), Devin Ratray (Mom I missed the plane), Ally Maki (Toy Story 4), Chris Parnell (Anchorman 2 – Fuck the news) and was directed by Dan Mazer (Grandpa unleashed).
The screenplay is by Mikey Day & Streeter Seidell (Saturday Night Live), the story is by Mikey Day & Streeter Seidell e John Hughes (Mom I missed the plane), based on a script obviously by John Hughes. Hutch Parker (X-Men: Dark Phoenix) and Dan Wilson (Boston – Manhunt) are the producers, while Jeremiah Samuels (Stuber – Assault Driver) is the executive producer.
The film will debut exclusively on the streaming service the November 12, 2021 and, below, you can read the (familiar) synopsis of the film:
Max Mercer is a mischievous and resourceful boy who was left at home while his family is in Japan for the holidays. So when a married couple trying to retrieve a priceless heirloom sets their sights on the Mercer family home, it’s up to Max to protect it from intruders… and will do whatever it takes to keep them out. Hilarious vicissitudes of epic proportions will ensue, but despite the utter chaos, Max will realize that there really is no place like his own “home sweet home”.
Here is the trailer that, needless to say, has already received rivers of dislike in a few minutes:
My advice? Go to recover the original film if you’ve never seen it and… Merry Christmas.
