Last week saw the surprise appearance online of a teaser trailer for “Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home,” supposedly Danny McBride’s Crocodile Dundee sequel out this summer.
Now, the fun continues in this latest full-length trailer which features famous Aussie actors such as Margot Robbie, Chris Hemsworth, Jackman, and Russell Crowe supposedly playing a villain. Isla Fisher, Ruby Rose, and Luke Bracey are also in the trailer, as well as Chris Hemsworth’s brother Liam.
There’s definitely plenty of potential here, possibly one of the most star-studded films to come out in awhile, and sure to set the boxoffic on fire once it opens across the globe.
Exciting as this sounds, the movie is in fact a viral marketing campaign. At least according to this article from Brisbane Times, which reveals that the supposed reboot is part of an advertising campaign for Australian tourism, set to air during next month’s NFL Super Bowl, February 3 on NBC.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis cause, you know, we all want the movie to be real:
Crocodile Dundee is back. Well, actually, he’s missing in the Outback. And the only person who might be able to find him is the loudmouthed American son no one knew he had. Introducing Danny McBride as Brian Dundee. This son of a legend is forced to channel his Aussie roots as he teams up with a local expert, Wally Jr., played by Chris Hemsworth. Together, they’ll embark on the ultimate adventure in the land down under. It’s time to live up to the family name. DUNDEE.
