When another Tarzan feature film was announced I immediately groaned. IMHO, the world needed another remake of Lord Greystroke like another reboot of Spider-Man. Right?
Naturally, I changed my tune once I saw Alexander Skarsgård as the titular character. Living in the jungle does a body good, especially his. Admit it, the first trailer piqued your interest in the latest adaptation. Well, the second one features even more shirtless scenes of the 39-year-old Swedish actor. Try not to drool 😉
The Legend of Tarzan Movie Synopsis
“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 (Margot 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 (Christoph Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.”
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.
The Legend of Tarzan swings into theaters on July 1. Check out the trailer below.
