Legend of Tarzan : Stills and behind-the-scenes photos of motion capture apes

Legend of Tarzan (Movie)

Images of motion capture actor Ace Ruele have surfaced via social media and show Ruele in motion capture gear and in a picture with Alexander Skarsgard. Ruele is reported to have played a lion and three apes in Legend of Tarzan.  Perhaps this is a good thing, since amidst the many positive discussion threads on social media about Legend of Tarzan, there’s a thread on the IMDB message boards about “monkey suits” with one visionary there insisting the apes are accomplished by “men in monkey suits.”

  • I think this visionary on IMBD who keeps insisting he saw a zipper on the back of a monkey suit is what is commonly called a troll. He is getting a kick out of making up something totally outrageous and insisting it is true just to get a reaction from others on the board. There is no way he saw what he said he saw.

  • I look forward to all the ‘behind the scenes/making of’ extras when the dvd comes out.
    As for the trolls on IMBD, I note they’ve made a very strong return to the Tarzan message boards once WB release the stills/poster/trailer.Some of them are just being malicious for the sake of being malicious. But some of them do appear to be not particularly high functioning the in the brain area.
