Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the upcoming Tarzan film, The Legend of Tarzan, from director David Yates (the Harry Potter series). The film stars Alexander Skarsgård as the titular “Lord of the Apes” along with Margot Robbie as Jane, Djimon Hounsou, Samuel L. Jackson, John Hurt, and Christoph Waltz.
The Legend of Tarzan opens in theaters July 1st, 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.
