In this new take on the iconic hero, True Blood's Alexander Skarsgård takes the titular role with The Wolf Of Wall Street's Margot Robbie playing Jane. They are joined by a cast that also includes Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, John Hurt and Djimon Hounsou.  

The new movie begins with Tarzan not in the jungles of Africa, but living as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his wife, Jane in London. However he is then invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a murderous plot, a plot that threatens to unleash his primitive origins.
