I’m not watching the Superbowl at all tonight but I did happen to catch the new “Dundee” movie trailer. It’s interesting ’cause after this Superbowl ad, people thought they were tricked into thinking this isn’t a real Dundee movie but an Australian tourism ad. When you go to the Dundee movie site, it takes you to an Australian tourism site instead.
So what’s going on here? Is this a real Dundee movie or not? Yes, it absolutely is. It’s funny that so many people got tricked into thinking this isn’t a real Dundee movie when IT IS! This is the 4th installment of the series and the funny part about all this, that these trailers have sparked people wanting the return of Crocodile Dundee when this is exactly it!
Paul Hogan reprises his role as Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee or better known as Mick ’cause as you can see Mick Dundee makes a cameo appearance in this trailer. This trailer is Dundee 4. It’s just a movie about tourism.
That’s what the first two Dundee movies were about… tourism in Australia pretty much. In the first Dundee movie, Sue goes to Australia to find Mick so she can write this story on him and then she decides to bring him to NYC. I fuckin’ love the first Dundee movie. The first one will always be a classic. The 2nd one was pretty good but I didn’t like the third one, though.
Once again, THIS IS the new Dundee film with Paul Hogan coming back… this is just very smart marketing. Trying to get a buzz going about this film and attract more attention. How much will Paul Hogan be in this new film? Will he have just a cameo or will he be in through the whole film? We’ll have to wait and see.
Of course Paul Hogan is coming back to the new Dundee film. I could have sworn a long while back Paul was talking about bringing back another Dundee film and this is it. Paul is the executive producer of the new Dundee movie.
The new Dundee movie is looking good so far and I’m looking forward to seeing it.
