Together for the First Time on Blu-ray, Fan-Favorite Trilogy Debuts September 21, 2021





Say g’day to Michael J. “Crocodile” Dundee (Paul Hogan), the eccentric Australian crocodile hunter who won the hearts of fans around the globe when he made his feature film debut in“Crocodile” Dundee, which celebrates its 35th anniversary this year. Originally released on September 26, 1986, the film earned over $328 million worldwide and spawned two sequels:“Crocodile” Dundee II and “Crocodile” Dundee in Los Angeles. Now, all three films will be available together in one Blu-ray collection when the “CROCODILE” DUNDEE TRILOGYdebuts September 21, 2021 from Paramount Home Entertainment.



The “CROCODILE” DUNDEE TRILOGY includes all three films in high definition, along with access to digital copies of each:



“Crocodile” Dundee

Paul Hogan's hilarious, endearing performance made "Crocodile" Dundee the #1 comedy at the U.S. box office in 1986, surpassed only by Top Gun in ticket sales. 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.

“Crocodile” Dundee II

Just as the eccentric Australian is starting to adjust to life in New York City, Dundee (Paul 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.



“Crocodile” Dundee In Los Angeles


He's wrestled crocodiles Down Under and fought crime in New York, but can Michael J. "Crocodile" Dundee swim with the sharks in L.A.? Paul Hogan returns as “Crocodile” Dundee in this hilarious third installment of the beloved film series, making its Blu-ray debut. The disc also includes a previously released “Making of” featurette and the theatrical trailer in standard definition.

I continue to give praise to Paramount for forging ahead with their catalog releases to Blu-ray.

On the other hand, this release is another example of recent trends where there is one very strong title paired with two lackluster sequels at a price point that makes it difficult to justify a purchase.

I don't quite remember how good/bad Crocodile Dundee II was. Been forever since I saw it. Don't think I even bothered to see the third.

I only saw 3 once in the theaters and I remember it being harmless and charming, but not worthy of being showcased as a theatrical release. Would have come off better if it was a straight to tv thing to watch lazily on a Sunday night at home.

There was a 13 year gap between the second and third films. CD was a product of the 80's. By the time the third film came along in 2001, the world had moved on. It only made about $39 million worldwide (the first two films made around $328 million and $239 million, respectively).

Since there's no mention of remastering or improvement, I will probably wait for this to come out and drive down prices for the existing Blu-ray set with the first two films. At least that way I'll only get one unwanted film.

I would happily buy a single-film release of Crocodile Dundee that included both the original Australian and modified American/international versions, though.
