• It’s definitely more actiony. And more speaking for Tarzan, though he seems to get more of a British accent in the second sentence. But I like it.
    Deadline seems confused though:
    I haven’t seen the film so I’ve no idea just how far it derivates from the original pulp novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, but the latest trailer for The Legend of Tarzan suggests it’s going to be closer to King Kong than Lord Greystoke. (Obviously, there are apes in the original stories, but the tone of this is much closer to a monster movie.) Starring Alexander Skarsgård in the title role, the film sees Tarzan returning to the jungle in which he grew up after years away, where he gets caught up in the sinister doings of corrupt and evil businessmen in the Belgian Congo. Directed by David Yates from a script by Adam Cozad and Craig Brewer, the film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Margot Robbie, Djimon Hounsou, Jim Broadbent and Christoph Waltz. It swings into theaters July 1.

  • This video is really action-packed and I love it! A couple of days ago, we were treated with Hozier’s music video which features romantic aspects of the movie, and now this trailer, which looks amazing. I really liked the Hozier’s music video and this final video.

    And Deadline seems confused as BC pointed out. What did the author expect? Of course there will be apes in Tarzan movie. There is a whole tribe of apes in the books. So, following their logic, I could have as well reacted to Jackson’s King Kong back in 2005 (my favourite btw) like this: look, it’s huge gorilla, is this a Tarzan movie?:)

  • With regard to Tarzan movie predictions and analyses, I wonder has anyone seen this yet:

    “Early buzz aside, though, there simply isn’t that much interest in Yates’ Tarzan flick among U.S. filmgoers – meaning, it might be up to the international box office to save the film from becoming a costly misfire for WB (a la last year’s Pan). Legend of Tarzan is the sort of big-budget, spectacle-driven, tentpole that tends to performs well around the world nowadays, as evidenced most recently by Warcraft: a video game adaptation that has made nearly 90% of its $313 million gross to date in non-U.S. markets. There may yet be hope for the Lord of the Apes’ new movie (as far as the box office is concerned), for that reason. “
