'Home Alone 3 trailer' set in 2024 sees Wet Bandits released from prison

'Home Alone 3 trailer' set in 2024 sees Wet Bandits released from prison

Home Alone fans were given an update on what a film with the iconic original cast would look like in 2024.

We know there is already a Home Alone 3, but this one looks a lot better than the 1997 standalone sequel.

Over thirty years after Macaulay Culkin's iconic character Kevin McCallister got his arch nemeses - bumbling criminals the Wet Bandits - locked up with the help of the pigeon lady in Central Park, we have got an update on their fates.

Well, kind of.

The Wet Bandits pay Kevin a visit after being released from prison.

A dedicated movie buff and trailer maker decided to do God's work and give Home Alone fans a look at what a 2024 film featuring the original star-studded cast would look like.

YouTuber @VJ4rawr2 promises to give film fans 'the highest quality edited fan trailers for the movies you WISH Hollywood would make' - and he hit the nail on the head with his latest one.

By cleverly splicing together scenes from different TV shows and films, swapping heads, changing backgrounds and hiring professional voice artists, he managed to bring his vision of a grown up Kevin McCallister to life.

It picks up from where Home Alone 2: Lost in New York left off - with clumsy criminals Harold 'Harry' Lyme (Joe Pesci) and Marvin 'Marv' Merchants (Daniel Stern) being hauled off to jail following their toy store heist.

A whopping 31 years have passed since the film hit the screens for the first time, so the pair must have got quite a hefty sentence for all their transgressions. As they deserved, may I add.

The spoof was made by splicing together other film and TV clips.

Meanwhile, Kevin and his hundreds of siblings and cousins have all grown up - and the protagonist is no longer a mischievous kid who spends the festive season fending off burglars.

That is until, the Wet Bandits are released from prison and send him a concerning Christmas card with their picture alongside the words: "We're back little buddy."

Kevin then looks up and spots that battered Dodge Ram van with the words 'Oh-Kay Plumbing and Heating' emblazoned on the side, which was once parked outside his childhood home as the pair did reconnaissance on the mansion.

The voiceover for the fake trailer of Home Alone: Kevin's Revenge begins: " This holiday season, it's time to rediscover a classic. Kevin Mcallister is back - except this family is a little weird around Christmas."

Kevin is seen chatting with his on-screen mum Kate, played by Catherine O'Hara, as he tells her: "That day you left, I had to defend our house. I was just a kid and you left me home alone."

Obviously, the actors didn't actually film these scenes - or any for that matter - it is just the clever use of editing by @VJ4rawr2.

The creator confessed it was difficult to find footage of Joe Pesci.

The parody trailer then shows Harry and Marv being released from jail, which is where the video gets a little bit dodgy looking - but to be fair, the creator said there wasn't a lot of footage of Joe Pesci for him to make use of.

Harry tells his sidekick: "Every day I sat in that prison cell, I thought about the kid. He's going to pay."

But Kevin has got his own cool line to hit back with - "This time it's not just me home alone. I need to defend this house for my family."

The spoof tells Home Alone fans to 'get ready for Kevin's final showdown' as he faces off with the Wet Bandits for one last time - which ends up making it on the news.

A news anchor tells viewers that a 'Chicago man has booby trapped his house with guns, explosives and possibly tarantulas' and that a SWAT team is currently en route.

Obviously loads of police radios are pinging - and one of these coppers is none other than Kevin's brutish older brother, Buzz (Devin Ratray).

He gets the message that 'two elderly gentlemen being shot at, lit on fire and struck with blunt objects', while his superior warns that 'this is an extremely violent crime with a high chance of fatality'.

Buzz couldn't care less, as he's heard a similar story before - and instead scoffs: "Nice try Kevin, nice try."

Home Alone fans ate the trailer up, even though it was a parody, and said the storyline could give Hollywood writers some inspiration for a much-wanted third part to the franchise with the original cast.

One said: "They definitely should make this movie, it would be great and probably break the box office."

While another wrote: "Great job putting this together, and yes, I agree this should be made!"

And a third added: "Everything about it looks awesome. My kids about lost it they were so excited until they realised it wasn't real."
