PREMIUM SPOTLIGHT WITH NEW TRAILER AND POSTERS ON 'LEGEND OF TARZAN' EPIC ADVENTURE WITH ALEXANDER SKARGARD, MARGOT ROBBIE, CHRISTOPH WALTZ, JIM BROADBENT, SAMUEL L. JACKSON, JOHN HURT, DJIMON HOUNSOU

 'THE LEGEND OF TARZAN'
NEW TRAILER AND POSTERS!
Here's something to cheer up your boring beginning of the week: gorgeous new posters and a brand new, third, positively stunning trailer for $180 million extravaganza LEGEND OF TARZAN, this summer's second biggest epic adventure which will storm into cinemas next month starring Alexander Skarsgard as the legendary Lord of the Jungle, with gorgeous Margot Robbie as the blond new Jane! David Yates is directing the latest adaptation of Edgar Rice Burrough's novel! With Christoph Waltz playing the main villain Captain Rom, the rest of the cast also includes Djimon Hounsou, Jim Broadbent, Samuel L. Jackson, and John Hurt!

KING OF THE JUNGLE 
It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan left the jungles of Africa, where he was raised by gorillas, behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke (Alexander Skarsgard), with his beloved wife, Jane (Margot Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash. Djimon Hounsou portrays Chief Mbonga, the leader of an African tribe, while  John Hurt appears in the movie as Prof. Archimedes Q. Porter, Jane's father and Tarzan's father in law.
 DEZZY'S HISTORY LESSON  
With Captain Rom being Belgian, the movie will have a historical side too, since Belgian kind Leopold II, one of the greatest villains the world has ever seen, launched a shockingly brutal genocide of millions of black people after he conquered the Congo as his own colony in the 1880s! He also left millions of people maimed with their hands cut off. The number of dead people in the exploited Congo was over ten million!

  5. I was just planning my movie adventures for this summer and really can't wait for Tarzan! I don't think the girls will like it, but I may make a date night of it and take Jason, or maybe even my bestie for a girls night out. I think my bff would enjoy a little eye candy that this one offers ;)

    1. why would not they like it, it's filled with animals?

    2. Because sometimes they suck (saying that with motherly love lol). They aren't into a lot of action adventure types of films like this. I had to listen to Mariah and her boyfriend argue at dinner last week about her not wanting to see Warcraft (he's dying to!) and him not wanting to see Dory (she's dying to!) The girls are more into family type films or animated ones. Though, Allison has quite a fascination with scary ghost movies lately.

    3. What? Dory over Warcraft, poor Shaggy! I love me family films and toons too but you gotta appreciate the visual splendour of these epic movies

      Delete
    4. I had to point out that they could see more than one film. So, she'll sit through Warcraft for him, and he'll see Dory with her. Sometimes you have to tell these kids it's all about compromise ;)

      Delete
    5. they're so ready for marriage if they're fighting over Dory and Orcs :)

    6. Gawd, that better be way, way far off. We must get through college first ;)

  6. The more I see of this movie, the more I think I want to watch it.

  7. I've been a fan of Tarzan since I was a little girl. Glad to hear that the new movie will have a greater political sensibility about history than either the books or previous filmed versions did. Also, I see Tarzan now wears pants instead of a loincloth. Aren't pants kinda hard to come by in the jungle?

    1. Silly, Debs, have not you read the plot? :)) He went back to England as Lord Greystoke and came back in pants, duh...

      Delete
    2. But what about before he went back to England? Are they going to show him swinging through the trees NEKKID?

      Delete
    3. one can only hope... Skarsgard does love to go around bum nekkid....

  8. I Googled this scar on history. How horrible Dezzy. I guess Six was right...."All of this has all happened before and it will happen again" :(

    1. there were documentaries at History on it, I remember them digging out huge holes with countless upon countless of severed hands in it... and nobody knows about because the West did it! And ten million was almost entire Congo population at that century
