A new trailer for a surprise fourth instalment of Crocodile Dundee has been released, but it might not be all that it seems.
The clip dropped last weekend and showed Danny McBride making his debut as Brian Dundee, the illegitimate son of Paul Hogan’s Aussie hero.
In the trailer, he’s seen referencing the film’s most enduring joke as he swings a knife around before turning to the camera and greeting the audience as “losers”.
A second clip has also been released, showing Chris Hemsworth as the son of original character Walter Reilly, greeting Dundee as he makes his way off a bus in the Australian outback.
But there’s already an air of suspicion around the project after it surfaced out of thin air – leading to claims that it could in fact be a elaborate campaign for a Super Bowl advertisement.
Firstly, there’s the fact that it came out of nowhere, and Hemsworth’s time has been largely dedicated to filming the third and fourth instalments of Marvel’s Avengers.
There’s also the rather telling fact that the ‘film’ is directed by Steve Rogers – a known advertising executive.
Either way, an official synopsis teases: “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.”
