The Legend of Tarzan

Posted on Mar 23, 2016

Raised in the jungles of Africa by apes, Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård) is no normal man. He was thought to be an evil spirit, a ghost in the trees. No man ever started with less. The Legend of Tarzan takes us to a time that is many years after the legendary King of the Apes left Africa for a gentrified life in London with his beloved wife, Jane Porter (Margot Robbie). Now Tarzan – now known as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke – has been invited back to Congo. 

“You may have enemies there,” he is told, “but you need to go home.” So Tarzan heads to Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, only to discover that he is actually a pawn in a deadly story of greed and revenge. With the corrupt Belgian Captain Léon Rom (Christoph Waltz) masterminding a murderous plot, Jane is kidnapped and Tarzan unleashes a torrent of forces that those who would destroy him had never anticipated.

 

Directed by David Yates (director of the last four Harry Potter films), The Legend of Tarzan is a new take on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ iconic jungle hero. This action adventure film, which also stars Samuel L. Jackson and Djimon Hounsou, is scheduled for release into theaters on July 1, 2016 by Warner Bros. Pictures.
