' classic apeman has swung back to the big screen in 3D. The motion-capture animated adaptation of Tarzan (Animated) is now playing in German and Russian theatres, with a U.S. release hopefully on the way.
In celebration of this debut, Constantin Film has released a new trailer. Be warned that it is in German; but you can still take a good look at the visuals. Director was using performance capture 3D technology. As a result, the animation looks like an old (and not very good) video game.
Writers and Yoni Brenner have added an Avatar-like sub-plot to the story: Tarzan and Jane have to save their exotic paradise from Greystoke Energies, an evil and greedy company. Take a look at the trailer here:
The English version of the film features the motion captured movement and voice of (The Twilight Saga, the upcoming The Legend of Hercules) and (Resident Evil films).
