I am sad there will be no new Crocodile Dundee movie

That looks like a trailer for a fun movie I would enjoy watching.

Turned out, per the Superbowl, it was all an Australian tourism ad campaign.

Sometimes being conned can be fun. I bought into the campaign hook, line and sinker.

I admit I was fully prepared to go see it this summer and yeah, kinda disappointed to know that I won't.

They put more effort into that fake trailer than into some real ones.

So was I. I thought the idea was kinda stupid at first, but after seeing a trailer or two thought it was going to be pretty funny.

I'm still annoyed I can't watch Howlin' For You. I've always been a big fan of Sir Todd Bridges.

I found the commercial to be extremely effective. I saw it during the Super Bowl and an hour later I was on a flight to Australia.

Okay, so I was watching the Super Bowl in an airport bar waiting for my flight to Australia, but still. I did enjoy it.

When I first saw the name Dundee, I thought they were remaking the movie, then I watched the trailer and did like it. Then I read the comments and saw it was a tourism commercial for the Super Bowl, I was disappointed that it was not going to be a real movie.

Paul Hogan knew he was getting too old for that schtick in the last movie, he's now pushing 80. Any new movie would have to star a 30-something as Mick, Jr.

ETA: now that I've watched the thing: their son is Michael Junior, not Brian.

You saw his 2-second cameo in the commercial, right? For some reason I don't think it's in the trailer the OP linked to, but it's in this one, at 1:16.

Jim Jefferies tried to get him to play his father in Legit. I donít know why he didnít. I would have liked to have seen that. George Lazenby played the part.
