From Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures comes the action adventure The Legend of Tarzan, starring Alexander Skarsg?rd (HBO's ?True Blood?) as the legendary character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs. In theaters July 1st this looks like it will be a really great date night movie.
It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsg?rd) 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.
Check out the movie trailer below.
The film also stars Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson (?Pulp Fiction,? the ?Captain America? films), Margot Robbie (?The Wolf of Wall Street?), Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou (?Blood Diamond,? Gladiator), Oscar nominee John Hurt (?The Elephant Man,? the ?Harry Potter? films), with Oscar winner Jim Broadbent (Iris), and two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz (?Inglourious Basterds,? ?Django Unchained?)
I remember watching the old black and white episodes of Tarzan on television with my dad. He had loved them back in the day when they originally came out. For some reason I was mesmerized by the show and enjoyed our time together while we watched them. I am super excited to see this new movie with my husband. This is one of those date night movies he won't eye roll when I ask him to see it with me. Until then enjoy the movie trailer and get excited!
