Alexander Skarsgård stars as the titular character in the latest telling of The Legend of Tarzan.
Based on the classic Edgar Rice Burroughs character, The Legend of Tarzan is set after the man known as Tarzan has left the jungle for a life of gentrification in London as Lord Greystoke, John Clayton III alongside his wife Jane, portrayed by Margot Robbie.
Clayton returns to the Congo as a trade emissary of Parliament – oblivious to the sinister plot being played out by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom. Rom isn’t prepared for the backlash about to be unleashed.
Directed by David Yates who was responsible for the final four Harry Potter movies, The Legend of Tarzan looks fantastic with convincing CGI and glorious locations which are presented on an epic scale. Let’s hope the screenplay lives up to the visuals.
The Legend of Tarzan is due in cinemas in the U.S. on the 1st of July and in the U.K. on the 8th. For other regions check IMDB.
