Turns Out That New Crocodile Dundee Film Was All A Big LOL & Here’s Why
Who could have seen this coming? Everyone. Absolutely everyone.
Last week, out of the blue, came two trailers for a movie that could only be manifested in Paul Hogan’s wet dreams. A new sequel in the Crocodile Dundee franchise starring Thor himself Chris Hemsworth (as well as Danny McBride) comically titled ‘Dundee: The Son Of A Legend Returns Home’.
It’s now come out via industry sources that the teaser is all part of an advertising campaign for Tourism Australia, for an ad set to air during next month’s NFL Super Bowl.
Things seemed fishy after it was revealed that the film was listing its director as Steve Rogers, a guy known for producing advertising campaigns for the likes of Nike, Old Spice and Audi.
Yeahhhhhhh, the jig was well and truly up.
The legitimacy of the film was further called in question when the behind-the-scenes photos, which are featured on the website, are only from the single scene which is featured in the trailers.
Add to this, that despite Screen Australia’s logo appearing on the teaser, the film is not listed among the organisation’s upcoming projects.
The people can all agree that this movie is bogus.
You mean that new CROCODILE DUNDEE stuff was just a hoax, setting up for an Australia marketing campaign? You mean a movie coming out in “Summer 2018” that nobody has heard of was not real? Say it ain’t so!

Well, that about settles it. If “tourism ambassador” Chris Hemsworth is involved, that’s as good as proof that the #Dundee thing is one big Tourism Australia ad campaign timed for Australia Day/Super Bowl/both. https://t.co/R4WaZHqTRs

I’m like 40-80% sure this Crocodile Dundee sequel with Danny McBride is a hoax

No. I refuse to accept a Crocodile Dundee reboot. And with an American lead, too.

But tbh, if it was real we’d watch the shit outta it.
