I’m sorry to break it to you, but… Dundee the movie, isn’t actually a movie.
After two weeks of teasers, it was finally revealed that the Dundee trailer, which stars some of Australia’s most-loved actors, is in fact a giant ad for the country which aired during today’s Super Bowl in the US.
“The greatest name in the outback is back in the outback! Only this time, Dundee isn’t a Hollywood movie. It’s a giant tourism ad for Australia,” Tourism Australia wrote on their official website.

“Thirty years after Crocodile Dundee first introduced the world to the land down under, Chris Hemsworth and Danny McBride bring the iconic Aussie franchise back as they embark on the trip of a lifetime.
“And while the film’s plot may not be real, Danny’s adventure through Australia’s outback, white sand beaches, gorgeous wineries and bustling cities are what truly await every visitor.”
The brilliant campaign, which encourages tourists to visit the land down under, has now started a worldwide petition, with thousands of people calling for a reboot of the 1986 classic, Crocodile Dundee.
