Lionsgate has released an official trailer for The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee. But before you get excited, I will warn you that this is not a Crocodile Dundee sequel. It’s its own thing.
Is it wrong that I sort of enjoyed that? I’m all for actors playing themselves and poking fun at their own expense. And you not only have Paul Hogan doing that, but also Chevy Chase, John Cleese, and Olivia Newton-John! This film is stacked with former ’80s all-stars.
I definitely think the Crocodile Dundee Super Bowl ad from a couple years ago showed Hogan that he still had a fan base. Unfortunately, instead of putting together an official sequel (which would have certainly starred Chris Hemsworth as his son instead of Danny McBride), it looks like we’ll have to settle for this comedy. Which I’m okay with.
The Very Excellent Mr. Dundee hits On Demand December 11, 2020.
What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
