The ambitious plan to take Australia to the Super Bowl began over dinner at a Sydney pizzeria this time last year — but could serve tourism operators close to $6 billion in US travel business by 2020.
The mock Crocodile Dundee trailer — teased to viewers before the NFL blockbuster — proved to be the stunning launch of Tourism Australia’s biggest single advertising campaign into America since Paul Hogan fronted the Come Say G’Day ads over 30 years ago.
An all-star cast of Australia’s most popular showbiz exports — lead by Thor star Chris Hemsworth and featuring cameos by Oscar nominee Margot Robbie and Hugh Jackman — featured in the 60-second spot, which aired to an estimated audience of 110 million people during the Super Bowl showdown between New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles.
Hemsworth, a Tourism Australia ambassador, will also feature in the rollout of an extended $36 million marketing campaign, alongside actor Danny McBride who appeared in the commercial as Mick Dundee’s long lost son. Take a look at the trailer below:
A new teaser trailer for Avengers: Infinity War aired during Super Bowl LII, giving us a few new glimpses at what the biggest Marvel movie yet has in store. The trailer shows the Avengers assembling to fight Thanos, a fan favorite villain from the Marvel comics, and one whose arrival the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies have been teasing for years.
The Avengers: Infinity War is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and stars many Marvel fan favourites like Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Pratt, Mark Ruffalo, Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Elizabeth Olsen and Zoe Saldana among so many others. The films hits theatres on May 4, 2018. Take a look at the trailer below:
After making his debut in the post credits scene of The Avengers, we’re now just a few short months away from seeing Thanos take centre stage as he battles Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Infinity War. And, speaking to Empire Magazine, Joe Russo has been chatting about the Mad Titan, and what he and his brother Anthony are hoping to achieve with the villain:
“Darth Vader was the pre-eminent villain of my childhood, and we’re hoping to make a Darth Vader for a new generation,” said Russo. “We’re hoping he has that complexity to him, and that he strikes fear into the heart of the audience, but at the same time they go on a journey with him. Frankly, Avengers 3 is his movie.”
If there’s been one major criticism levied towards Marvel, it’s that the films’ villains haven’t always been up to par. Let’s hope that changes when Marvel unleashes the Mad Titan this May.
Avengers: Infinity War opens on April 27th in the UK and May 4th in North America. (Source)
A new trailer for Tourism Australia’s Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home made its way online today. While this is a ‘fake’ movie trailer, we couldn’t help but wish it was real!
Showcasing some of Australia’s biggest exported talent (Margot Robbie, Russell Crowe, Liam Hemsworth, Ruby Rose and Hugh Jackman to name a few), the full trailer will appear during the Super Bowl next month.
When the first trailer for Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home appeared online, the Internet’s collective shock was palpable.
Could Danny McBride really have filmed an entire Crocodile Dundee sequel about the iconic Australian hero’s son without seemingly anyone finding out? And how could Thor actor Chris Hemsworth possibly sign onto a project without a million reports emerging?
The answer, of course, is that Dundee is not a real movie. The trailer is a spoof, part of the marketing campaign for Tourism Australia, the full advert for which will appear during the Super Bowl next month.
Last week, fans were taken by surprise by Dundee, the mysterious sequel/spinoff to the Crocodile Dundee franchise starring none other than comedy superstar Danny McBride. While people are still speculating about whether the project, produced by Rimfire Films (the company behind the first two Dundee movies) is an actual film or merely a lavish Super Bowl spot, it has been revealed that Australian actor, Chris Hemsworth will play Wally Jr., the son of Dundee’s business partner Walter “Wally” Reilly as played by John Meillon in the first two films.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s latest film, 12 Strong hit theatres this weekend. Directed by Nicolai Fuglsig, the movie features a fantastic cast of Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, Elsa Pataky and Michael Pena. Take a look below at what the critics have to say about the film:
Rolling Stone — Producer Jerry Bruckheimer thinks big, and his war movies can range from noisy idiocy (Pearl Harbor) to near brilliant (Black Hawk Down). Luckily, 12 Strong sees the value in substance as well as spectacle. The action scenes pulsate with the hum of modern warfare. Credit Hemsworth for playing Nelson not as some Norse God out of Marvel fantasy (that’s his day job) but as a man of courage forced to improvise on his feet or die trying. The rest of the cast also perform beyond the call of escapist duty.
Globe and Mail — 12 Strong suffers badly from a script stuffed with clichéd dialogue and some heavy-handed scenes on both the home front and in Afghanistan. Still, director Nicolai Fuglsig does succeed admirably in turning a contemporary battle fought with precision air strikes and satellite communications into a classic war movie with unambiguous good guys and a vile enemy. Put aside your hindsight and at least you’ll be rewarded with some invigorating action.
Variety — “12 Strong” is a war film that wants you to feel good about the invincibility of American power. The film is built like a grungy combat video game, with each village treated like a new level and the agony of battle taking a backseat to the pounding thrill of force. Visually, the terrain comes close to raising an existential question: What, exactly, are we fighting for in Afghanistan? The film slips in the pointed and now rather outdated argument that if the Taliban can be defeated, and Afghanistan eliminated as an Al Qaeda base, then there will be no more attacks like 9/11. Well, there haven’t been…but is that the reason why?
Last night, Chris attended the New York premiere of his upcoming film, 12 Strong with his wife and co-star, Elsa Pataky. Directed by Nicolai Fuglsig, 12 Strong hits theatres on January 19th. Head over to the gallery for the latest additions.
Earlier in the week, Chris and his 12 Strong co-stars attended the Build Studio Presents event to promote their upcoming film. Directed by Nicolai Fuglsig, 12 Strong hits theatres on January 19th. Head over to the gallery for the latest additions.
In the wake of Sept. 11, Capt. Mitch Nelson leads a U.S. Special Forces team into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission. Once there, the soldiers develop an uneasy partnership with the Northern Alliance to take down the Taliban and its al-Qaida allies. Outgunned and outnumbered, Nelson and his forces face overwhelming odds in a fight against a ruthless enemy that takes no prisoners.
