Updated with new domestic trailer, too.
“True Blood” alum Alexander Skarsgard is no ordinary man in this U.K. trailer for Warner Bros.’ “The Legend of Tarzan.”
Directed by “Harry Potter” veteran David Yates, the film picks up years after the man once known as Tarzan left the jungles of Africa for a gentrified life in England as John Clayton, Lord Grestroke, with his wife Jane (“Suicide Squad’s” Margot Robbie) at his side. Now he’s invited back to the Congo to serve as Parliament’s trade emissary, unaware that he’s a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by Capt. Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz). However, those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.
Opening July 1 in North America, “The Legend of Tarzan” also stars Samuel L. Jackson and Djimon Hounsou.
