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.

I’m not one for the over-dramatized, based on a true story kind of movie. But for most of them, there is something special and inspirational that makes me want to know more about the subject’s story. Case in point, Hacksaw Ridge.
Now I didn’t know anything about Desmond Doss’ harrowing story of how he refused to take up arms during World War II, but ended up saving multiple lives during the Battle of Okinawa. But to see it on the big screen was something else. The fact that it was also directed by Mel Gibson did add some concern to it, given his outrageous behavior and reputation. Still, the film managed to meet my expectations. Check out my review below.
Warner Brothers has released the first trailer for Point Break, the remake of The Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 action hit of the same name that starred Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze.
The remake stars Luke Bracey in the role of Johnny Utah, Reeves’ role in the original, with Swayze’s Bodhi role being played by Edgar Ramirez. The movie also stars Teresa Palmer, Ray Winstone, and Delroy Lindo, and is directed by Ericson Core.
You can read a full synopsis for Point Break and check out the first trailer as well as a poster for the movie below.
Just a quick update on the remake of the 1991 Kathryn Bigelow action flick Point Break.
Recently it was reported that Gerard Butler, who was set to play the same role Patrick Swayze played in the original, had decided to exit the project due to scheduling conflicts and and creative differences.
Now comes word that Edgar Ramirez has entered into negotiations to take on the role and replace Butler.
