Director David Yates brings us the new take on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ jungle hero stars Alexander Skarsgård with Margot Robbie, Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz and Djimon Hounsou.
The film begins years after the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (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.
