NEWS.am STYLE continues to share interesting facts about popular films. Today we’ll talk about Gary Ross's 1992 film “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York”.
1.Macaulay Culkin received $ 8 million for participating in the sequel. At that time, it was the most valuable check issued in the name of a 12-year-old boy.
2.The toy store is called "Duncan's Toy Shop". The store was named after executive producer Duncan Henderson.
3.The gangster movie Kevin is watching doesn't exist. The excerpt was specially filmed for use in the film.
4.Entertainment Weekly asked the doctor to analyze what the consequences of Harry and Marv's injuries would be. Bricks on the face would cause "brain damage at best, and death at worst."
5.The cameo role went to the daughter of the film's director Chris Columbus. Eleanor Columbus played a little customer in a toy store, and Columbus himself starred as one of the workers at Duncan's toy store.
6.A few weeks after the film was released, Tiger Electronics released a real version of the Talkboy toy (compact cassette player), which Kevin actively uses during the film. As in the film, it could process a child's voice into a voice with the intonation of an adult man.

9.Catherine O'Hara was worried that her character wasn't trying hard enough to find Kevin. Scenes were added to show her anxiety. O'Hara said she practiced her "guilty-sad" face at home.
10.Michael Jackson visited Macaulay Culkin on the set.
11.According to Daniel Stern, his first take for the scene where Marva is electrocuted at the sink made Chris Columbus laugh so hysterically that he could not shout "cut!" even after Stern collapsed on the floor and finished the scene.
