Let’s count Alexader Skarsgård’s abs in The Legend of Tarzan teaser
This really put me in the mood to listen to “Roar” for some reason. So now I have Katy Perry blasting on repeat.
I’ve been skeptical about any movie with pretty girls running through the jungle ever since Universal farted out this gem 10 years ago. I’m not sure what to make of The Legend of Tarzan yet, but I’ll cut the studio some slack since it’s just a teaser.
The story is told in reverse this time: Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård) has been living a civilized life in England with his wife, Jane (Margot Robbie) until they return to Africa to investigate a mining encampment. Naturally, Jane is captured, and Tarzan has to save her ass.
Is anyone else getting Arnie Schwarzenegger vibes from Skarsgård? He looks extra muscly.
Judging from the gray tone of the teaser, this will be a DARK MOODY take on Tarzan. Thank God, then that we have the two hammiest actors, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson in the cast.
Poor Robbie’s talent will probably be wasted while Jane waits for her man, but on the bright side, this means another press tour, which means more adorable interviews like this.
Before I close, allow me to remind you that no Tarzan movie will ever be superior to George of the Jungle.
