Alexander Skarsgård in New IMAX Trailer for 'The Legend of Tarzan'
"He's Tarzan, you're Jane, he'll come for you." IMAX/WB has released a new trailer, making this the third official trailer (see the second one), for David Yates' The Legend of Tarzan, being released by Warner Bros on July 1st this summer. Alexander Skarsgård stars as Tarzan, along with Margot Robbie as Jane, in this new live-action version of the classic story. The full cast includes Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, Casper Crump, John Hurt, and Djimon Hounsou. While this reminds me of Jon Favreau's wonderful The Jungle Book, it has a much darker, much more sinister feel to it, especially with the footage in this. I actually think it looks fantastic, that opening with the apes is chilling. Will catch this in theaters.
Here's the new IMAX trailer for David Yates' The Legend of Tarzan, direct from IMAX's Twitter:
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 this summer.
