2016’s The Legend of Tarzan has received its first poster, following the recent release of two first-look stills from the film. The poster, which can be seen below, shows Alexander Skarsgård’s Tarzan looking over his jungle as an ape next to him lets out a mighty roar. Warner Bros. tweeted out the poster on the upcoming film’s Twitter account.
The king of the jungle will be accompanied in the film by Margot Robbie’s Jane, who, although is absent from the poster, made her first appearance in one of the two previously unveiled stills.
The film’s official plot has been described by USA Today as follows…
The movie finds John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, a decade removed from his home in the Congo and fully entrenched as a British gentleman in 1880s Victorian London, with his beloved wife Jane (Margot Robbie) by his side. He’s left his African home behind — his early days are seen in flashbacks — but is constantly reminded of his earlier exploits and gets invited back as an emissary of Parliament. While hesitant at first, Tarzan eventually returns to the Congo, old friends as well as Jane are put in serious danger, and his latest cliff-jumping, vine-swinging story kicks off from there.
The film is directed by Harry Potter series veteran David Yates and written by Stuart Beattie, Craig Brewer, John Collee and Adam Cozad. The rest of the cast includes Samuel L. Jackson as George Washington Williams, Djimon Hounsou as Chief Mbonga and Christoph Waltz as Captain Leon Rom.
The Legend of Tarzan will swing into US theaters on July 1, 2016 and UK theaters the following week.
