The Legend of Tarzan stars True Blood alum alum Alexander Skarsgard, Margot Robbie, Djimon Hounsou, Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz. Ahead of Thursday’s trailer release, we have a poster for David Yates’ take on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic character. The film hits theaters July 1.
Yesterday, USA Today shared the above images and plot description of the film:
“…the movie finds John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke (Skarsgard), a decade removed from his home in the Congo and fully entrenched as a British gentleman in 1880s Victorian London, with his beloved wife Jane (Margot Robbie) by his side.
He’s left his African home behind — his early days are seen in flashbacks — but is constantly reminded of his earlier exploits and gets invited back as an emissary of Parliament. While hesitant at first, Tarzan eventually returns to the Congo, old friends as well as Jane are put in serious danger, and his latest cliff-jumping, vine-swinging story kicks off from there.”
