With The Legend of Tarzan set to swing into theaters July 1, Warner Bros. is making one final push to get you into theaters. An extremely buff Alexander Skarsgård stars as iconic hero, who’s since left his jungle roots behind to settle down as John Clayton III, Lord Greystroke, in 19th century England. He’s happily married to Jane (Margot Robbie), and life is comfortable if a bit dull. Then he’s called back to the Congo thanks to a convoluted plot masterminded by the evil Captain Léon Rom (Christoph Waltz). The only way to survive is to embrace his animal side once more.

Warner Bros. will try to keep the Harry Potter franchise alive on the big screen later this year with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, directed by fantasy franchise helmer David Yates. But before that, the studio is taking a chance on the director’s adaptation of the classic Edgar Rice Burrough’s character Tarzan.
A new The Legend of Tarzan trailer has just arrived from IMAX, and this one lays out much more of the ape man’s origin story than we’ve seen in previous footage, including information about his parents, and some sneak peeks of how he was raised by apes. Will this be worthy of such a prime summer release date? Read More »

Alicia Vikander was downright inescapable in 2015. The Swedish actress had no fewer than seven films out in U.S. theaters last year — including The Danish Girl, which won her the Best Supporting Actress Oscar. She’ll be a little less ubiquitous in 2016, but there’ll still be plenty of her to go around. She’s got Jason Bourne coming this summer and The Light Between Oceans due this fall. And before either of those hit cinemas, she’ll be seen in Tulip Fever.
Directed by Justin Chadwick (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom), the romantic drama follows Sophia (Vikander), a young woman in 17th century Amsterdam. She’s married to a wealthy older man, Cornelis (Christoph Waltz), but risks everything when she falls into a passionate affair with Jan (Dane DeHaan), the artist hired to paint the couple. Tom Stoppard wrote the screenplay, and it’s based on the book of the same title by Deborah Moggach. Watch the first Tulip Fever trailer after the jump. Read More »

Fans of young men abandoned in jungles and raised by wild animals are having a banner year in 2016. Not only is Disney’s The Jungle Book coming out next month, but this summer brings The Legend of Tarzan, starring Alexander Skarsgård as the iconic Edgar Rice Burroughs character.
Except this Tarzan isn’t really going by Tarzan anymore. Nowadays he’s John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, living out a genteel life with his wife Jane (Margot Robbie) in 1880s London. But when a greedy plot by Captain Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz) brings him back to the Congo, he needs to get in touch with his wild side again in order to save the day.

Though James Bond fans were excited to see what director Sam Mendes did with Spectre after knocking Skyfall out of the park back in 2012, plenty were disappointed when the film finally hit theaters last fall. While this writer didn’t find the film to be downright terrible, mostly enjoying the throwback elements of the story and villain being utilized, the film certainly lacked the kind of punch you hope to get from a 007 adventure.
Now, the Spectre Honest Trailer really sticks it to the movie, calling it “Bond-by-the-numbers,” which is pretty hard to argue with. Plus there’s a great reference to the Nintendo 64 video game Goldeneye. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Last fall brought the return of Daniel Craig as James Bond in Spectre, and along with him came a classic villain played by Christoph Waltz. As of now the future of the 007 franchise is uncertain, with no new movie in development and no official or unofficial sequel date on the horizon, but there may be one detail that is already set.
Christoph Waltz is rumored to be coming back not just for Bond 25, but also for Bond 26. However, there’s a catch. Waltz will only return for the sequels if Daniel Craig comes back as James Bond. Otherwise he’s out. Find out more below, but beware of spoilers for Spectre if you haven’t seen it. Read More »
We all know how annoying it is when a cell phone goes off during the middle of a movie. Now, imagine how much more bothersome it is for a cell to go off during the shooting of a movie. Just think of some actor giving a scene their all, the lighting is perfect, and right before they get the perfect shot.. it’s killed by somebody’s android phone. That must happen, and apparently, it’s occurred more than a few times to Quentin Tarantino.
Learn why the writer-director behind The Hateful Eight doesn’t permit cellular telephones on his sets after the jump.

Since Disney’s adaptation of John Carter of Mars didn’t work out too well, maybe Warner Bros. will have more luck updating a more grounded novel from Edgar Rice Burroughs in The Legend of Tarzan.
True Blood and The East star Alexander Skarsgård takes the title role of the man who was raised in the jungle by a family of apes. However, this approach to Tarzan finds the character already removed from the jungles of Africa, living with his wife Jane (Margot Robbie) far away from his former home. But then some kind of scheme brings him back to the jungle, where his enemies will learn how he survived in the wild for so long. Read More »
