Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home

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.

Now, the first trailer opens with some typical taglines that are supposed to draw interest from audiences. Then the camera turns to McBride saying “G’day, losers.” The “G’day,” is as close as you are going to get to an Australian accent, and even that sounds American, or just authentically McBridian. Everything else just sounds like the actor.

So you can guess why people are questioning if this is for a real movie or not. But it’s not over yet. Today, a new trailer was dropped. This time, McBride appears alongside Thor actor Chris Hemsworth, who is a real Australian. In this trailer, we see him hold up a “Dundee” sign, one you would see when you pick up someone from the airport. Except, Hemsworth is on some dirt road in the Outback. It’s not too long before a bus stops by and drops off the son of Crocodile Dundee. And it appears that not even Hemsworth can believe this is real.

It’s hard to believe that this film is even real. Honestly, it feels like a faux movie production for some product we will see during the Super Bowl. Crazier things have happened. But if this film is, indeed, real, then I am up for watching McBride put a spin on the fish out of water film. Just think about it, is McBride’s character aware that his Australian accent is not even remotely close to being Australian or is he an Australian enthusiast who just says and does things he thinks is Australian?

But the one thing that makes me believe that this trailer is not real, despite the fact that the production companies are very much real – RimFire Films helped produce the original Crocodile Dundee films – is that it has no release date as of yet. Yes, it says to expect to see it this summer. We also don’t know who wrote and directed it, so how are we supposed to believe any of this?

Anyways, here’s the plot synopsis for this otherwise very real movie:

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 embarks on the ultimate adventure in the land down under. It’s time to live up to the family name.
