You’ll want to break out your largest screen capable of watching YouTube videos, because The Legend of Tarzan has a new trailer specifically for its IMAX release. The new spot highlights some big scenes in the new movie, which is the latest adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s stories of the iconic “ape man,” aka the “lord of the jungle.”
Also, the bigger the screen the better in order to appreciate the beauty of both Alexander Skarsgard and Margot Robbie, as Tarzan and Jane, as well as the larger-than-life scene-chewing hamminess of Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson (yep, a Django Unchained reunion). Of course, there’s also the massive CG beasts on display, too.
Watch the new trailer here:
Just try to disregard how the trailer opens with an accidentally disturbing sequence where a gorilla grabs a child. Maybe instead think of how The Legend of Tarzan kind of looks like a sequel to The Jungle Book in its coming so soon after Disney’s very successful live-action release. The feral child has grown up, gone to live in the man village (city) and now returns to the wilds of Africa.
The movie hasn’t had a lot of hype considering how soon it comes out, but The Legend of Tarzan has a lot of things going for it, such as a great cast — which also includes Djimon Hounsou, John Hurt, and Jim Broadbent. Also David Yates, director of multiple Harry Potter movies (including the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) is at the helm.
See it on the big screen when it opens on July 1.
