The “Crocodile Dundee” trilogy will come out on Blu-ray (plus digital) Sept. 21 from Paramount Home Entertainment for its 35th anniversary.
Originally released on Sept. 26, 1986, Crocodile Dundee, featuring Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee (Paul Hogan), the eccentric Australian crocodile hunter, earned more than $328 million worldwide and spawned two sequels: Crocodile Dundee II and Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles.
Crocodile Dundee was the No. 1 comedy at the U.S. box office in 1986, surpassed overall only by Top Gun in ticket sales. In the film, Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee (Hogan) is a free spirited Australian who hunts crocodiles with his bare hands, stares down giant water buffaloes, and drinks mere mortals under the table. But he’s about to face the ultimate torture test — a trip to New York City. The Blu-ray also includes the theatrical trailer in HD.
In 1988’s Crocodile Dundee II, just as the eccentric Australian is starting to adjust to life in New York City, Dundee (Hogan) and his girlfriend (Linda Kozlowski) are targeted by a gang of ruthless drug dealers. Dundee evens the odds by leading the big-city hoods into the treacherous Australian outback. The Blu-ray includes a previously released behind-the-scenes featurette in standard definition and the theatrical trailer in HD.
In 2001’s Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles, Hogan returns in the third installment of the film series, making its Blu-ray debut. The disc also includes a previously released “making of” featurette and the theatrical trailer in standard-definition.
