Alexander Skarsgard is 'No Normal Man' in First 'Legend of Tarzan' Trailer

On July 1, Edgar Rice Burroughs makes his triumphant return to the big screen in Warner Bros.' "The Legend of Tarzan." The first trailer introduces the new Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgard), or as he now lives his life, John Clayton III, and his wife Jane (Margot Robbie), as well as a seriously high action quotient as Clayton returns to his roots in the Congo. The movie hails from David Yates, the acclaimed director of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."

Along with the first images and poster from the film earlier this week, Warner Bros. also revealed a synopsis of the plot:

“…the movie finds John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke (Skarsgard), a decade removed from his home in the Congo and fully entrenched as a British gentleman in 1880s Victorian London, with his beloved wife Jane (Margot Robbie) by his side.

He’s left his African home behind — his early days are seen in flashbacks — but is constantly reminded of his earlier exploits and gets invited back as an emissary of Parliament. While hesitant at first, Tarzan eventually returns to the Congo, old friends as well as Jane are put in serious danger, and his latest cliff-jumping, vine-swinging story kicks off from there.”

Written by Stuart Beattie, Craig Brewer, John Colle and Adam Cozad, “The Legend of Tarzan” also stars Djimon Hounsou, Samuel L. Jackson and Christoph Waltz.
