Teaser Trailer: “The Legend of Tarzan”

In the wake of the release of the first photos and poster for the film in the past day or so, the first trailer has now arrived for “The Legend of Tarzan,” the upcoming new big-budget take on the classic jungle hero creation by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

Featuring a ton of CG animals, CG-assisted vine swinging, stampedes and glimpses of Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson delivering the kind of usual over the top performances you expect, the film manages to be fun and a bit camp without being campy – mostly as it seems to stick to its pulpy original material and mythmaking more than you might expect. Can it work? We’ll find out when the film opens July 2016.
