The lord of the apes returns in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ new 3D action adventure, “The Legend of Tarzan” starring Alexander Skarsgård (HBO’s “True Blood”) as the legendary character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Watch the film’s teaser trailer below.
Directed by David Yates (the last four “Harry Potter” blockbusters, including “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Parts 1 & 2”), the film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Margot Robbie, Djimon Hounsou, John Hurt, and Christoph Waltz.
In “The Legend of Tarzan,” 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.
Opening across the Philippines in June 2016, “The Legend of Tarzan” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
