The-Legend-Of-Tarzan-Alexander-Skarsgård-Margot-Robbie-Edgar-Rice-Burroughs

The legendary character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs is back in The Legend of Tarzan, directed by David Yates (the final four Harry Potter films) from a screenplay by Adam Cozad and Craig Brewer, story by Brewer and Cozad based on the Tarzan stories created by Burroughs.

In this all new adventure, Tarzan is confronted with a formidable enemy who threatens to destroy everything—and everyone—he loves.  But after spending years among the British gentry, he also faces grave danger from old adversaries who have been awaiting his return to Africa.

Tarzan 3The gentleman summoned to #10 Downing Street by the Prime Minister of England is John Clayton III, fifth Earl of Greystoke, and a member of the House of Lords.  But half a world away, and what seems like a lifetime ago, he had gone by another name…a name that has since become legend.  Tarzan. It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård from Diary of a Teenage Girl and HBO’s True Blood) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Margot Robbie from The Wolf Of Wall Street)), at his side.  Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the King of Belgium’s envoy, (Christoph Waltz – Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained).    But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.

As for special features, there are a few featurettes totaling around 50 minutes of additional content; six exciting behind-the-scenes making-of featurettes focuses on the re imagining of the Tarzan legend, the film’s staged battles and brawls, the relationship between Tarzan and Jane, creating a computer-generated jungle, and there’s a PSA from Skarsgard and Robbie about the elephants in Africa and poaching for Ivory.
