Macaulay Culkin Prefers First ‘Home Alone’ Over the Sequel Because ‘It Had 100% Less Trump’
Macaulay Culkin joined Reddit this week for an Ama session in promotion of his new podcast series, “Bunny Ears,” and his dig at President Donald Trump has quickly gone viral. One Reddit user asked Culkin which “Home Alone” movie was his favorite, and apparently it’s not even a close race for the famous 1990s child actor.

“The first one was more fun because we didn’t know what we were walking into and it was a lot less flying all over the place,” Culkin said. “It was all in Chicago. It also had 100% less Donald Trump.”

The current President made a small but memorable cameo in the 1992 sequel “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.” Culkin’s Kevin McCallister enters the famous Plaza Hotel and ends up asking Donald Trump for some directions in the lobby.

The Secret Behind Buzz's Girlfriend in Home Alone

The Secret Behind Buzz's Girlfriend in Home Alone
Everyone is so sensitive nowadays, if Home Alone were getting a remake, it's virtually guaranteed that the joke about Buzz's girlfriend would be completely cut from the movie. But even in 1990, director Chris Columbus knew he couldn't have a girl that age come in and audition for the part. So he had to get very inventive with how he presented this 'very beautiful girl'.

Buzz was Kevin's very obnoxious bully brother in Home Alone, who was constantly on the attack. At one point, Kevin (played by Macaulay Culkin), who has been forgotten by his parents as they all fly away for the holidays, is going through his brother's trunk of personal belongings. He pulls out a photo of Buzz's girlfriend, housed in a lovely frame. The image is supposed to illicit a laugh, because she's beauty challenged. Back in the day we would have said she's homely, but that just

Sundance: Rory Culkin Talks Bloody Black Metal Tale ‘Lords of Chaos’

Sundance: Rory Culkin Talks Bloody Black Metal Tale ‘Lords of Chaos’
Rory Culkin chased “Lords of Chaos” for roughly five years. There was something about the story of the rise and bloody fall of Norwegian black metal icon Euronymous that the actor couldn’t shake. So he kept his dirty blonde hair long and kept frequent tabs on the long-gestating project, routinely calling his agent for updates.

“I was discouraged a lot and thinking, ‘Who’s going to put money into a movie about kids in face paint burning churches down and killing each other?'” said Culkin.

Finally, he gave up the hunt and got a haircut.

“Literally two weeks later I got the call saying we were going,” Culkin said with a chuckle.

After the waiting and false starts, “Lords of Chaos” has finally arrived at the Sundance Film Festival in all its gruesome, iconoclastic, decibel-shattering glory. Hours before its midnight premiere on Wednesday, Culkin, decked out in a red sweater and black jeans and nursing

Macaulay Culkin Gets Candid About Michael Jackson: He Liked Being Around Kids
Macaulay Culkin doesn't grant too many interviews, but he recently sat down with Marc Maron on his Wtf podcast where he candidly discussed his friendship with Michael Jackson.

Every Year in Queer Cinema Should Start as Well as 2018

As Timothée Chalamet fever sweeps the country, and “Call Me By Your Name” envelops audiences in the golden hue of Italian summer romance, the future of queer cinema looks bright indeed. Beyond our Adonis-adorned Oscar contender, 2017 delivered an array of satisfying gay storylines; including the breathtaking French epic “Bpm (Beats Per Minute),” the underrated Billie Jean King biopic “Battle of the Sexes,” and Sebastian Lelio’s bittersweet romance “A Fantastic Woman.”

Gone are the days when queer cinephiles counted their lucky stars for one gay-related film a year, a trend that films like “Moonlight” and “Carol” seem to have nipped in the bud once and for all.

Jamie Lee Curtis: Eliza Dushku’s ‘True Lies’ Assault Allegation ‘Has Awakened Us to a New, Horrific Reality’
Jamie Lee Curtis, who played Eliza Dushku’s mother on 1994’s “True Lies,” spoke out in an op-ed about Dushku’s allegation that the film’s stunt coordinator, Joel Kramer, sexually molested her when she was just 12 years old.

In the op-ed for the Huffington Post, published on Sunday, Curtis revealed that Dushku told her about the alleged incident years ago. “I was shocked and saddened then and still am today.”

“Eliza’s story has now awakened us from our denial slumber to a new, horrific reality,” she wrote. “The abuse of children.”

Curtis pointed to the complexities of working with child actors on set, and recalled when, while she was shooting 1991’s “My Girl” with a young Macaulay Culkin and Anna Chlumsky, she implemented a “swear jar” on set.

“It is a complicated relationship working with children as they are being asked to do adult work with you in an adult field, surrounded by hundreds

‘Freak Show’ Trailer: Laverne Cox & Bette Midler Support a Gender-Bending Teen’s Run for Homecoming Queen (Exclusive)
Notorious club kid James St. James was canonized in the 2003 film “Party Monster,” which saw an adult Macaulay Culkin return to the screen for the first time since 1994’s “Richie Rich.” In his controversial comeback, based on St. James’ memoir and directed by “RuPaul’s Drag Race” producers Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey, Culkin played a drug-addled party promoter who becomes embroiled in a murder. Fifteen years later comes “Freak Show,” which is based on the eponymous novel by St. James. “Freak Show” has a lighter take on a similar character, although not one without his demons.

From first-time feature director Trudie Styler, “Freak Show” releases its flashy first trailer today.

Twelve Unsinkable Facts for Titanic’s 20th AnniversaryTwelve Unsinkable Facts for Titanic’s 20th AnniversaryKurt Anthony12/19/2017 10:00:00 Am

“It’s been 84 years….”

Actually, it’s been 20 years! James Cameron’s record-breaking blockbuster Titanic celebrates its 20th anniversary today and we know you’re frozen with excitement.

A chilling tale of romantic disaster, Titanic combines the fictitious love story of Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) and Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) with the untimely fate of the R.M.S. Titanic, one of history’s most famous ships.

Originally an elaborate plan to obtain funding for deep-sea filming expeditions, Cameron has stated that he made Titanic because he wanted to dive to the real wreck. As the writer, director, co-producer, and co-editor of the film, Cameron ended up spending more time with the ship than its actual passengers.

Filmed on a production budget of $200M, Titanic was the most expensive movie ever made at the time.
