Last week, the first Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home trailer arrived and the /Film staff had a good laugh because this surely had to be a joke. A Crocodile Dundee sequel starring Danny McBride as the long lost American son of Paul Hogan‘s semi-iconic Australian movie character? Someone was pulling our leg. This was a prank. A joke. A tease for some other project, possibly involving McBride’s gaggle of gag-prone comedy buddies.

But here we are, a few days later, and a second Dundee trailer has arrived. And this one features Chris Hemsworth, rocking his natural Australian accent. What is this? When did they make this? What reality have we fallen into? Is this just a big prank and are we playing into someone’s hands?

Let’s answer that question right now: probably, most likely, yes. There’s no way a movie called Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home gets made and there’s no way it stars Danny McBride and Chris Hemsworth without anyone finding out. No way. If this is a real movie, I will eat a Koala (caveat: you must supply the Koala). Anyway, you can watch the new trailer below.

Personally, I’m beginning to align myself with those who believe this is going to climax with an absurd Super Bowl commercial and not go any further than that. Because come on. This is not a movie arriving in theaters this summer. Let’s be real about this.

Still…the thought of Danny McBride starring in a fish-out-water comedy with Chris Hemsworth in full “lovable idiot” mode is undeniably alluring. I don’t need a new Crocodile Dundee movie, but I do think I need these two to star in a movie together. McBride’s coarseness and Hemsworth’s natural charm should roll together like whiskey and Coke.

Anyway, here’s one more amazing image. This movie can’t be real, but we can all treasure this image and let it burn itself into our brains forever.

Here’s the “official synopsis” for this has-to-be-fake 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.
