Must Watch: Alexander Skarsgård in First 'Legend of Tarzan' Trailer
"He was thought to be an evil spirit. A ghost in the trees. No man ever started with less…" Warner Bros has debuted the first official trailer for The Legend of Tarzan, the new David Yates movie after the director finished the Harry Potter series. This should be a must watch - it rather surprisingly looks fantastic, much more dark and thrilling and yet still exciting in a very unique way. I'll be damned, I guess I now have to say I'm looking forward to seeing this. Alexander Skarsgård stars as Tarzan, Margot Robbie as Jane, along with a great cast: Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, Casper Crump, John Hurt, and Djimon Hounsou. We also posted some first look photos, but there's a big difference between those and this trailer.
Here's the first official trailer for David Yates' The Legend of Tarzan, direct from WB's YouTube:
Tarzan, having acclimated to life in London, is called back to his former home in the jungle to investigate the activities at a mining encampment. USA Today explains that "the movie finds John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, a decade removed from his home in the Congo and fully entrenched as a British gentleman in 1880s Victorian London, with his beloved wife Jane (Margot Robbie) by his side." The Legend of Tarzan is directed by English filmmaker David Yates, who made the leap to features with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, also directing Half-Blood Prince and both parts of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The screenplay has credits for Stuart Beattie, Craig Brewer and Adam Cozad; adapted from Edgar Rice Burroughs' story. Warner Bros releases The Legend of Tarzan starting July 1st, 2016 next summer.
