We pretty much knew that the trailers for the Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home “movie” (herehere, and here) were fake and actually ads for Australian tourism. And yet, we wanted to believe that somehow it would become a real film. And can you blame us? I mean, Danny McBride playing the estranged American son of the Australian legend, Crocodile Dundee. And in the trailers that have been released so far, we’ve seen Chris Hemsworth, Hugh Jackman, Margot Robbie, Russell Crowe, Isla Fisher, Ruby Rose, Luke Hemsworth,, and more trick us in to believing that this was a real movie… or at least get us to want to visit Australia.
But now, comes the terribly sad news: There is no Dundee movie. But if you are thinking about going to Australia any time soon, well, then this ad might be just the thing to get you to buy a plane ticket. Check out the latest ad here below, which aired during last night’s Super Bowl.
For the past two weeks, the Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home trailers have only featured Danny McBride, Chris Hemsworth, and Hugh Jackman. McBride, who plays the title character, is the “estranged son” of the legendary Crocodile Dundee, although he lacks the spirit of the Outback, as seen in his broken Australian accent and inability to remove the water buffalo with his “Outback Powers.” Last week, Jackman “joined” the cast of this otherwise fake film that appears to be nothing more than a Super Bowl ad to promote Australian tourism.
Now a full-length trailer has appeared, showing more from the fake movie. And as you might have expected, it features an all-star Australian cast including Margot Robbie, Russell Crowe, Isla Fisher, Ruby Rose, Luke Hemsworth, and more. Check out the trailer below.
Last week, a series of trailers and clips promoting Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home debuted. Though trailers for reboots are not out of the ordinary, it’s who they chose to star as the title character that had quite a few people vexed. It was Danny McBride who would say Crocodile Dundee’s signature phrase: “That’s not a knife. Now that’s a knife.” Many couldn’t take the trailer seriously considering McBride said it in such a broken Australian accent. However, the trailer was cut in such a way, it almost seemed like it was real.
We should have seen this coming. But we should not be ashamed for hoping that it was real. Those trailers for a Crocodile Dundee sequel starring Danny McBride, Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home, made us question whether what we were watching was real.
As it turns out, the trailers are likely ads for Australian tourism and not for a Crocodile Dundee sequel after all. Sorry folks. More on the story of how this all happened below.
Over the weekend, the internet was taken by surprise by the release of a trailer for Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home. In it, Danny McBride plays a character who proclaims himself to be the son of Crocodile Dundee and says all the signature phrases said by the famous Australian character.
However, many could not take the trailer seriously considering McBride’s seriously broken Australian accent. So is this a trailer for a real movie that will hit theaters this summer or some sort of elaborate marketing campaign made to look like it’s for a movie? Check out the trailers below and decide for yourself.
