Tarzan Teaser Trailer
As a Thursday treat, take a look at the teaser trailer for Tarzan featuring an abs-olutely ripped Alexander Skarsgard in the lead role!
The action adventure film follows the fictional character Tarzan, who has left the African jungle for a normal life with his wife Jane Porter, played by Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad, About Time). But when he is invited back to the Congo, he becomes a pawn in a difficult game of diplomacy and reverts back to his roots for answers.
Tarzan also stars the extremely talented Christoph Waltz (Inglorious Basterds, Spectre) as the baddie Captain Rom, Samuel L Jackson (Pulp Fiction, Iron Man) and Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond, Gladiator).
In a recent interview with the USA Today, Swedish hunk Alexander Skarsgard discussed the reboot’s fresh approach to the timeless tale: “It’s almost the opposite of the classic tale, where it’s about taming the beast.”
“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.” He said.
With director David Yates (Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) in the director’s chair, Tarzan is bound to be a blockbuster hit next summer. We are particularly excited to see the on-screen romance between Alexander Skarsgard and Margot Robbie, and her portrayal of Jane.
Yates remarked in the USA Today interview that Robbie takes on a 21st century depiction of Jane, who’s “in no way a passive partner to Tarzan. She’s a really strong, assertive, beautifully knowledgeable, very sexy modern woman who can more than look after herself.”
Seems she’s not just an Average Jane…get it!?

The film is set to be released in the UK on 8 July 2016.
