After being treated to a few first-look images yesterday, Warner Bros. today has released their official trailer for the eagerly awaited film The Legend of Tarzan and it looks extremely dramatic! But before we get into the trailer, first take a read of the synopsis for the film, which is set after Tarzan has already met his wife Jane Porter, and is now Lord Greystoke:
It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Margot Robbie) 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 Belgian, Captain Leon Rom (Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.
Check out the moody and action-packed trailer, and then take a look at the in-depth breakdown below:
The trailer opens with some eerie looking shots over a river and the jungle, before showing us a well dressed exploration party, and also tribesmen with weapons. Over the images, a rather ominous voiceover says:
"The jungle consumes everything. It preys on the old, the sick, the wounded."
The trailer then shows flashes of images from what looks to be Tarzan's childhood growing up in the Congolese jungle. A voiceover from Tarzan's wife, Jane, explains the myth of Tarzan as we see quick flashes of what his life was like in the jungle:
"He is no normal man. He was thought to be an evil spirit, a ghost in the trees. no man ever started with less."
The trailer then descends into some amazing flashes of action, including scenes with Captain Leon Rom (Waltz), which seem to indicate that Jane is being used as pawn in his plot:
And of course, there were also some crazy looking scenes involving Gorillas – especially this one of the Gorilla appearing to bear down on Tarzan:
And then last but not least, we're left with this final powerful action shot:
'The Legend of Tarzan' is set for release in summer 2016.
