Get your first look at Margot Robbie and Alexander Skarsgard in Tarzan

12.08.2015

For a movie which reportedly cost $180 million and opens in less than a year from now, we're seen and heard very little of David Yates' TARZAN. The film stars Alexander Skarsgard as the titular character as well as Margot Robbie as Jane, but instead of focusing on the traditional Tarzan story of a man being raised by apes, TARZAN will take place a decade after Tarzan, now John Clayon III, left his home in the Congo and began living the life of a British gentleman in 1880's Victorian London.

USA Today has received the first look at the film, check out the new images below!

Come on Skarsgard, the least you could have done is work out a little for the role; you call those abs?! I'm kidding obviously, and maybe a little jealous. Alexander Skarsgard spent over four months undergoing a rigorous training regimen in order to get into Tarzan shape, but the actor sounds excited to be involved in a different take on the classic tale.

It’s almost the opposite of the classic tale, where it’s about taming the beast, 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.

Although the story takes place long after Tarzan has departed his African home, his early days will be seen in flashbacks and once he returns to the Congo after being invited back as an emissary of Parliament, there will be plenty of vine-swinging and cliff-jumping action as Jane and he embark on a new adventure. Don't expect Margot Robbie's Jane to be the typical damsel-in-distress, director David Yates says that Jane "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. In a way, it’s a story of two human beings and how they save each other." Also starring in the film are Djimon Hounsou, Samuel L. Jackson, and Christoph Waltz.

TARZAN hits theaters on July 1, 2016.

Doesn't look any better than Greystoke, which has always been my favourite Tarzan movie of all time. Tarzan X is a close second. Don't google that one, if you haven't already know. :D

Getting a "Lone Ranger" vibe from it, actually

Which is cool. I'm in the minority of fans who liked "TLR". Yeah, cheesy...but it's Cheesy Fun.

Sure as shit checking out "ID4-2" first...but Tarzan looks like it could be cool

The world needs more Tarzan as much as it needs another Peter Pan movie... seems like Hollywood goes back to this idea every 10-15 years and it never really takes off. Then if it *does* do well, they'll figure out the shared universe... Anyway, I love the talent involved all around, just don't see the need... not sure the audience will either. Best of luck though to all involved...

Any one else think....

these pictures look very low budget? Maybe I'm just getting used to high budget films looking overly glossy and over-edited, but this looks like a modern version of the woods from the Wizard of Oz to me.

Looking forward to this; especially with the excellent cast involved (Skargard, and Robbie are perfect casting in my opinion). But unfortunately, I think this will not make back its high budget (at least here in the States).

And judging by Skarsgard's appearance in this, he would have made for an awesome Aquaman in the new DCCU.
