An epic new three minute trailer as been released for The Legend of Tarzan, the David Yates helmed movie which stars Alexander Sarsgard as the titular hero and Margot Robbie as Jane. The impressive cast also includes Djimon Hounsou as Chief Mbonga, Samuel L. Jackson as George Washington Williams, and Christoph Waltz as the villainous Captain Leon Rom.
Rather than retelling Tarzan’s origin story, Legend finds John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, 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) now by his side.
While the movie is going to explore his early days in flashbacks, Tarzan is eventually forced to return to the Congo when Jane and some of his other friends are put in serious danger.
This IMAX exclusive trailer definitely seems to be an improvement on some of the other trailers we’ve seen for the movie, though it’s still too early to try and predict how this one will turn out. With John Carter proving to be a flop back in 2012 and everything from Warcraft to X-Men: Apocalypse underperforming at the box office this year, it should be interesting to find out whether or not moviegoers have any interesting in Tarzan these days.
