Jamie Lee Curtis and Michael Myers, Halloween

A poster has been released for Blumhouse’s new Halloween movie, which features a close-up of the one and only Michael Myers.

Despite sharing a title with the original, the movie is actually a sequel, which sees Jamie Lee Curtis returning to the franchise she began her film career with back in 1978. To make things even more confusing, original director John Carpenter, who’s acting as a creative consultant on the new entry, has said that the movie is a direct sequel to the first, ignoring all of the others that followed it. But despite the confusion, it’s still a new Halloween made with some guidance by Carpenter, which is all that’s really needed to be excited.

‘Dundee’ Trailers We Wanted To Be Real Are Tourism Ads, Because Of Course They Are

Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home

We pretty much knew that the trailers for the Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home “movie” (here here, 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.

‘Dundee’ Trailer: Margot Robbie, Russell Crowe, Isla Fisher, Ruby Rose, and More Join Ad Campaign

Margot Robbie in Dundee

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.

Hugh Jackman ‘Dundee’ Clip Makes Us Want To Believe That This Is A Real Movie

Hugh Jackman Dundee

Last week, a series of trailers and clips promoting Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home debuted. Though trailers for reboots are not out of the ordinary, it’s who they chose to star as the title character that had quite a few people vexed. It was Danny McBride who would say Crocodile Dundee’s signature phrase: “That’s not a knife. Now that’s a knife.” Many couldn’t take the trailer seriously considering McBride said it in such a broken Australian accent. However, the trailer was cut in such a way, it almost seemed like it was real.

Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home

We should have seen this coming. But we should not be ashamed for hoping that it was real. Those trailers for a Crocodile Dundee sequel starring Danny McBride, Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home, made us question whether what we were watching was real.

As it turns out, the trailers are likely ads for Australian tourism and not for a Crocodile Dundee sequel after all. Sorry folks. More on the story of how this all happened below.

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.

New ‘Halloween’ To Ignore All Previous Movies Except Original

Halloween Banner

The latest Halloween movie has taken some interesting twists and turns since we’ve known about it. First we found out that the legendary John Carpenter himself, who directed the original and hasn’t been involved with the franchise since Halloween III: Season of the Witch over three decades ago, would be helping to create this new movie. After that came the slightly confusing, yet intriguing decision to hire David Gordon Green and Danny McBride, the duo who previously worked together on Pineapple Express, Your Highness, Eastbound & Down, and Vice Principals, to make the movie.

More recently, there was even more exciting news for fans of the franchise: Jamie Lee Curtis will be returning to Haddonfield once again. And this time she’ll be joined by Judy Greer, who will be playing her daughter.

Now Carpenter himself has another interesting twist for us. He’s revealed that the newest movie will completely ignore every other entry in the franchise except the original. See what he had to say below.

Judy Greer Joins New ‘Halloween’ Movie As Karen Strode

Judy Greer

Reboots are just a thing we are accustomed to seeing in headlines nowadays. But some reboots catch our interest, especially when it falls into the right hands. Such as Blumhouse’s new take on Halloween.

The film will bring back Jamie Lee Curtis who made a name for herself as the ultimate scream queen in John Carpenter’s original 1978 classic slasher film. When announcing her return, Curtis said “Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween.” So while it is something of a reboot of the franchise, the movie is also a sequel and canon. And to make sure it is canon, the film will be adding one interesting connection.

New reports confirm that Judy Greer will be joining the cast as Karen Strode, Laurie Strode’s daughter. More on the story below.

Movie Review: Alien: Covenant

Alien Covenant poster

Alien: Covenant
Director: Ridley Scott
Screenwriter: John Logan and Dante Harper
Cast: Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Carmen Ejogo, Demián Bichir
Distributor: 20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | 122 Minutes
Release Date: May 19, 2017

The truth is that while I liked Alien: Covenant, I didn’t love it. What’s tragic, aside for the future the prequel sets humanity up for, is that all it would have taken to make the film phenomenal was some small tweaks and changes.

Alien: Covenant lacks the same emotional heights sci-fi fans associate with Ridley Scott’s film of 1979 or James Cameron’s 1986 sequel, though it’s not without merit. Chief among the complaints is that the new film seems to sit on the franchise’s laurels rather than push it forward in the way Casino Royale did for James Bond or Logan did for X-Men. It’s been 38 years since the original Alien thriller, but this movie lacks some of the lauded learnings and innovations of modern science fiction cinema.
