On the heels of those delicious promo pics featuring a jacked-up Alexander Skarsgård, Warner Bros debuts the teaser trailer for their big budget offering, The Legend of Tarzan.

This new film about the legendary character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs begins differently from most adaptations. It starts with Tarzan living as John Clayton III/Lord Greystoke, 10 years after leaving the jungle. Eventually, the action heads back to Africa when he’s lured to Congo under false pretenses.

“It’s almost the opposite of the classic tale, where it’s about taming the beast,” said Skarsgård in an interview with USA Today. “This is about a man who’s holding back and slowly, as you peel off the layers, he reverts back to a more animalistic state and lets that side of his personality out.”

Also appearing in the film are Margot Robbie, Samuel L. Jackson, Djimon Hounsou, John Hurt, Jim Broadbent and Christoph Waltz. Harry Potter‘s David Yates directs the potential blockbuster. Check out the trailer below. The Legend of Tarzan swings into theaters on July 1, 2016.

“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.”
