Keanu Reeves? Dolly Parton? Joe Biden? Social media has plenty of suggestions for who could digitally replace Donald Trump in "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York."
Columbus looks back at his comedy-horror classic and how it fits into holiday viewing. “When people should be celebrating, these ridiculously evil monsters are terrorizing the town ... that is fascinating.”

Emma Watson is aiming to charm young moviegoers worldwide via her lead role in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, the new live-action re-do of the 1991 animated hit about a bookish woman who, in order to save her father, winds up living with a monster — who’s really a rather dashing prince living under a curse. Of course, this isn’t the first time Watson has starred in a surefire kids’ movie blockbuster. Watson spent the better part of her adolescence playing Hermione Granger in eight Harry Potter films. Kimmel surprised Watson with the behind-the-scenes clip from Chris Columbus’ 2001 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone debuted in U.S. theaters on Nov. 16, 2001, launching a wildly successful, much beloved eight-movie franchise. And yet, in retrospect, the common wisdom holds that the series had nowhere to go but up from the Chris Columbus-directed screen adaptation of the first J.K. Rowling book. Sorcerer’s Stone has a lower Metacritic rating than any subsequent Potter film except the second — Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, also directed by Columbus — and regularly lands at or near the bottom of many critics’ ranked lists of the franchise.
