Learn About the Spirit of Tarzan in Final 'The Legend of Tarzan' Trailer
"They speak of his power over the animals… Because his spirit came from them, he understood them." Warner Bros has unleashed one final trailer dubbed the "conquer" trailer for David Yates' The Legend of Tarzan, which hits theaters next month. We've already seen quite a few trailers for this and the more we see, the better it looks. 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. This seems like a much darker, and grittier, more action-packed take on any jungle story than we've seen before. And the VFX are looking much better. Enjoy!
Here's the final "conquer" 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 this summer.

I am not liking what I am seeing. But I was wrong about THE JUNGLE BOOK. Still, this does not look like it is going to be very good.

It does have a strong colonial taste which is really ugly thing in 21st century ...

Actually it's very much anti-colonialism. The film uses real historical events as its setting - in this case, the Congo Free State under Leopold II of Belgium. Christoph Waltz and Samuel L Jackson are both playing real, historical people, as the film mixes fact and fiction.

I appreciate good intentions and reasoning. So yeah, those are historical figures, historical setting, etc., but the whole thing still has some colonial flavor. So, what kind of history then we have here, did Hollywood really make an anti-colonial piece? The main character is white (and he shows incredible physical and moral strength born out of the land of black people and, seems to, it is beyond the strength of those homegrown black people), there's a love story and it, of course, includes beautiful, almost dreamy, gorgeous white woman, and the black soldier with the sense of humanitarianism and racial solidarity for a good measure is here, the villain is white (as it should be in 19th century Africa), but I miss the main subject of the whole anti-colonialism, don't you? Doesn't seem to have the leading part... Anyway, movie should be seen first before the final judgement, but I'm still not really convinced in this piece of history. I hope it and you will prove me wrong. Piece and thanks for the intelligent remark ...
