Here is the trailer for the Tarzan movie.
I have no idea why this movie is being made.
Must be a large Tarzan fanbase that I am not aware of.
INFO ON THE FILM
Tarzan, having acclimated to life in London, is called back to his former home in the jungle to investigate the activities at a mining encampment.
Wait, so Tarzan leaves the jungle?
Is he is still Tarzan if he does that?
This movie will be released on July 1 2016
It stars Alexander Skarsgård and Margot Robbie
MY THOUGHTS ON THE TRAILER:
1. Wow that was an awful day in the jungle.
He gets beaten to death by a bunch of apes.
Probably not one of the more pleasant ways to go.
Seriously, though, I am a little taken back that they show that in the trailer.
Knowing Tarzan’s dad dies was never really a big selling point with me.
3. This looks outdated with the setting.
Could they have updated it so that he is in our time?
Not back in the 19th century when the original story took place.
It could be me here, but I would like to see that instead of Tarzan being stuck in the same time period we have always seen him in.
4. More style than substance.
Why is Tarzan posing as if he is modeling for a photoshoot at one point?
“Oh look at me, Tarzan. Me big strong man. Look at me abs.”
This movie will be more for style and action than storytelling.
It is about a man living with apes for god’s sake, what storytelling could there really be?
5. Where is Phil Collins?
No Phil Collins music?
That was the best part of the other movie.
6. Geico may have done better.
Why do I feel like Geico did a better job of capturing a modern relationship between Tarzan and Jane than this movie will?
WORTH GOING BASED ON THE TRAILER?
Eh. It looks okay. Not great. I guess if you like Tarzan then you could check this movie out. If you are not a fan of Tarzan, then I would caution you to know that you are going to see a very shallow action movie with good effects.
REMINDS ME OF:
King Kong. (the one by Peter Jackson) If you enjoyed that film you may enjoy this one.
