The upcoming movie “Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home” might just be a Super Bowl prank.
Danny McBride and Chris Hemsworth have appeared in promotional videos for the sequel, but not everybody is buying it.
Yahoo reported the following:
Screen Australia doesn’t mention the film in its list of movies in pre-production, production or post-production taking place in their country either so, again, the credibility of Dundee being a real movie is getting less and less likely, despite it having a IMDb page and its own website.
However, this all seems to be an elaborate ploy to make you think that Dundee is a real movie rather than a Super Bowl LII ad.
Given the timings of the trailers’ release and the upcoming NFL final on February 4, this movie seems more likely to be teasing a commercial that will air during the sporting event than an actual film.
Well, damn. I was actually super excited to see this because I’m a massive fan of Danny McBride. I’d watch that guy paint a wall for two hours, and I’d still probably laugh the whole.
He’s an electric factory of comedy. Having Hemsworth in the cast certainly didn’t hurt my interest either. Those two appeared to be great together in the trailers. Now we’re just sitting here wondering if any of it was real. Why do bad things happen to good people? I was so pumped and now I don’t even know what reality is anymore.
This Super Bowl commercial better be epic if we got all built up for a movie that’s not happening.
