Synopsis Revealed for TARZAN Starring Alexander Skarsgard

Alexander Skarsgard is taking a break from his days as a sexy vampire in HBO's "True Blood" to journey deep into the jungle. He will portray "Tarzan" in a new David Yates-directed film, coming out of Warner Bros.

The gorgeous Margot Robbie, who portrayed Leonardo DiCaprio's love interest in "The Wolf of Wall Street", is playing Tarzan's wife Jane. An amazing cast rounds out the rest of the ensemble including two-time Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz, Djimon Honsou and Samuel L. Jackson.

Now WB has revealed the plot for the upcoming film. Opposed to going the origin route, which seems to be all the rage these days, they will introduce us to a Tarzan who is now domesticated and has shed his wild ways. Check out the synopsis below:

"It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, 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."

Skarsgard seems like the perfect actor, both in physicality and energy, to portray this character. He's dabbled with a few other film roles as seen in "Disconnect" and  "The East", but "Tarzan" could really put him on the map like never before if Yates and team pull it off.

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
