Where is Home Alone’s original cast now?
Few expected a movie about a 10-year-old boy fighting two goofy burglars to turn out to be a huge hit and a vacation staple, but a lot of that was down to the incredible cast.
Released in 1990, Home Alone racked up $ 285.8 million in the United States and Canada, and $ 190.9 million in other countries against a budget of $ 18 million, making a huge profit.
The classic film also cast then-unknown child actor Macaulay Culkin into one of the world’s biggest stars and helped his costars land even more roles.
The success of the film led to another sequel with Macaulay and four other, albeit less successful, films with other lead actors.
Now, over 30 years after the original came out, let’s see what the cast is like today.
