First Official Look At Margot Robbie And Alexander Skarsgård In THE LEGEND OF TARZAN

We've seen some set snaps, but now USA Today has shared a couple of official stills from David Yates' live-action Tarzan movie, which promises to be a very different take on Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic tale. See Margot Robbie as Jane and Alexander Skarsgård as Tarzan after the jump...


Most versions of Tarzan follow the source material and kick things off with the character as a young boy being raised by apes in the jungle, before eventually growing up and returning to civilization to reclaim the title of John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke - but this new take from director David Yates begins with Tarzan having already left the mantle of King of the Jungle behind and settled in Victorian England with his wife, Jane.

At some point he is invited back to the Congo as an emissary of Parliament, and only then does he strip off and get back to his vine-swinging roots.

“It’s almost the opposite of the classic tale, where it’s about taming the beast,” says Skarsgård. “This is about a man who’s holding back and slowly as you peel off the layers, he reverts back to a more animalistic state and lets that side of his personality out.”
