After months of anticipation, we are now just over a week away from David Yates’ The Legend of Tarzan. While the animated classic is the Tarzan adaptation everyone remembers, we have yet to get a good live-action adaptation of this classic character. The first trailer for Yates’ film may not have impacted audiences as much as they wanted, but I think they’ve done a fantastic job of growing and releasing the better stuff as its release date has gotten closer. Every piece of footage has been more exciting, and that definitely continues with the films final trailer.
As far as this character goes, this is definitely the darkest and most serious he’s been told so far. And I’m totally into it. I’ve been enthralled by all the footage I’ve seen to this point, I really dig Alexander Skarsgard as the Lord of Apes, the cast is phenomenal, and director David Yates is basically a sure bet after what he did for the Harry Potter franchise. Now instead of revealing a bunch of new footage, Warner Bros. pulled a smart move by focusing this final trailer solely on Tarzan’s return to the Jungle. One of the most interesting aspects of this film is the relationship between man and animal, mainly Tarzan and those who raised him. Either way, this trailer kicks some ass and gets me even more excited to see how this film turns out. That tree swinging ending though…
Watch the final trailer below and let us know your thoughts in the comments. What’re thoughts on all the footage so far? What’s your anticipating level like? What are you most excited to see? David Yates’ The Legend of Tarzan swings into theaters July 1st, 2016 and stars Alexanders Skarsgard, Margot Robbie, Samuel L. Jackson, Djimon Hounsou, and Christoph Waltz.
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.
