Dundee clip

By now, we all know that Dundee, the out-of-nowhere sequel starring Danny McBride as the long-lost son of Crocodile Dundee, is not actually a movie, but rather an elaborate bit of marketing for a Super Bowl ad. Still, that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the bonkers stuff this fake movie keeps putting out. Like this brand new Dundee clip, where McBride tries to tame a water buffalo.

I’ll be perfectly honest: they had me going for a second.

When the first trailer for Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home arrived last week, the internet let out a collective “Whaaaaaa-?” and proceeded to wonder if this Crocodile Dundee sequel, about the long lost American son of Paul Hogan’s iconic Australian hero (played by Danny McBride), was actually real. It couldn’t be! And now, it’s become increasingly clear that it’s all a big gag, the first step in a marketing campaign for Australian tourism that will air during the Super Bowl.

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?

We don’t deserve Taika Waititi. Not only is the man constantly immaculately dressed, he’s a boundless ball of joy and energy who turned his Thor: Ragnarok set into one big ‘ol dance party.

Take this Thor: Ragnarok gag reel. Rather than introduce it like your standard special feature video where the actors do talking head interviews about how much fun they had on set, Waititi primps and preens in front of the camera, taking the viewer on a dramatic tour of the set while he pokes fun at bits of set dressing. It’s so incredibly extra, and exactly what Waititi — who built up hype for his film by releasing those hilarious Team Thor mockumentary shorts — would do.

One moment, you’re planning to boldly go back to the science fiction movie series that helped launch your career and the next…well, you’re lost in space. Chris Hemsworth knows as much about Quentin Tarantino’s planned Star Trek movie as you do, which means “not much.” Surely, this doesn’t bode well for the original Star Trek 4 pitch, which involved the return of Hemsworth’s George Kirk.

Quentin Tarantino Star Trek R Rated

Update: Deadline has confirmed that Mark L. Smith will write Quentin Tarantino’s Star Trek movie. This story is strange for many reasons, but it’s especially strange since Tarantino has always penned his own projects. Our original story continues below.

Earlier this week, news broke that Pulp Fiction filmmaker Quentin Tarantino would be joining the Star Trek franchise via an idea he pitched to J.J. Abrams. The news sounded almost too strange to be true, and that perhaps any moment we’d learn a mistake had been made. But now even more details about Tarantino’s Star Trek have arrived, including the revelation that the film will be R-Rated, per Tarantino’s stipulations. In addition to this news, The Revenant writer Mark L. Smith has emerged as the frontrunner to pen the script. Folks, this continues to seem very, very weird.
