Everybody is focusing on David Yates returning to the world of wizards with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but many forget the Harry Potter director has another film out in 2016.

The photos feature True Blood star Alexander Skaarsgard as the titular ape-man and The Wolf of Wall Street‘s Margot Robbie as his love Jane Porter.
Also starring Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, Djimon Honsou and John Hurt, The Legend of Tarzan is an original story set after Tarzan left the jungles of Africa behind to be with Jane. Called back to the congo as a trade emisarry for the British parliment, Tarzan finds himself caught in a revenge scheme by Waltz’s villainous Captain Rom.
