Family Recreates Famous Movie Scenes With Baby, Cardboard Boxes

After moving three times within two years, Leon Mackie and his wife, Lilly Lang, had an abundance of cardboard boxes and a now 2-year-old toddler to keep entertained. What’s a family to do? For them, the answer was simple: Recreate famous movie scenes with their son, Orson, using their leftover boxes to build the sets. “With our social lives drastically altered we decided to find a way to make some of those housebound weekends a little more fun,” the couple, who have finally settled for work in Sydney, Australia, wrote on their website After posting their first photo, “People loved it and asked if we were going to do any more,” Mackie told “We had a lot of weekends at home so thought, ‘Why not?’” The silver-screen turned living room tradition continued every weekend for about a year and a half now, with scenes from films such as “Die Hard,” “Star Wars,” and “Jaws.”
