Yet another incarnation of Tarzan is coming to the big screen this time starring Margot Robbie as jane and Alexander Skarsgård as Tarzan. Directed by David Yates, the film is visually polished giving viewers a mythical rainforest come to life. Margot plays Jane’s innocense well and Skarsgard seems to be the perfect cast for the man raised by animals legend.

Take a look at the first trailer and poster for The Legend of Tarzan below.


The Legend of Tarzan, which also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Christopher Waltz, Djimon Hounsou, and John Hurt, opens on July 1st.

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.
