r/todayilearned – TIL Warner Bros cancelled “Home Alone” because they didn’t want to spend $14 million on it. 21st Century Fox continued the production, and the film grossed $476 million worldwide.
That’s just the box office take. If you consider decades of VHS, DVD and streaming, plus being aired non-stop every holiday season they could be in the billions.
Also, it gave us MC having a career of just being a very weird and chill guest appearance on random YouTube channels.
