First Look At Alexander Skarsgård And Margot Robbie In ‘Legend Of Tarzan’ | Film News
USA Today has unveiled the first official pics of Alexander Skarsgård and Margot Robbie in the upcoming Legend of Tarzan. The live-action remake will reportedly take a different approach to the classic tale. Instead of focusing on Tarzan’s early life in the wild and how he’s raised by simians and crowned the lord of the jungle. Legend of Tarzan will fast forward to a later point in life where he’s living a more civilized life in Victorian, England alongside his beloved, Jane.
He might seem tamed but don’t be fooled, there’s still a wild man living inside, longing for escape. “It’s almost the opposite of the classic tale, where it’s about taming the beast”, Skarsgård told USA Today in a previous interview. “This is about a man who’s holding back and slowly as you peel off the layers, he reverts back to a more animalistic state and lets that side of his personality out”. Want some proof, just take a look at this;

Let’s just get it out of the way, he looks great. Beyond great. As for Jane? She’s going to be equally bad-ass. Director David Yates has revealed that Robbie’s take on Jane will be a modern one and that she is “in no way a passive partner to Tarzan. She’s a really strong, assertive, beautifully knowledgeable, very sexy modern woman who can more than look after herself”. I’m excited.
But if that doesn’t do it for you, the other cast members might, the film has got a rather impressive cast that consists of some major talents; Djimon Hounsou as Chief Mbonga, Samuel L. Jackson as the real-life figure George Washington Williams and Christoph Waltz as the Belgian antagonist Captain Leon Rom. The film has all the ingredients for success. The Legend Of Tarzan will hit cinemas on July 8, 2016.
