Coming to theaters on July 1, 2016 is the live action adventure The Legend of Tarzan.
The film stars Alexander Skarsgård (HBO’s “True Blood”) and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street).
From Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures comes the action adventure The Legend of Tarzan, starring Alexander Skarsgård (HBO’s “True Blood”) as the legendary character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
The film also stars Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson (Pulp Fiction, the Captain America films), Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street), Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond, Gladiator), Oscar nominee John Hurt (The Elephant Man, the Harry Potter films), with Oscar winner Jim Broadbent (Iris), and two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained).
It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom (Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.
I have always liked the story of Tarzan. There have been so many movies made based upon the character. I actually got into the character/films when Johnny Weissmuller played the role of Tarzan. He made several Tarzan films in the 30’s and 40’s.
Did you know that Tarzan creature, Edgar Rice Burroughs, wrote over two dozen Tarzan books from 1912 – 1965? No wonder there have been so many Tarzan movies over the years. Filmmakers have a lot of material to work with thank to Rice Burroughs’ books.
Check out the trailer for the new Legend of Tarzan film.
It looks awesome. I am especially impressed by the special effects. It looks like an epic film too.
