The Legend of Tarzan is Created in First Trailer

The Legend of Tarzan trailer shows us just how brutal the jungle can be.  With savage tribes, fierce gorillas, and various poachers, it takes the likes of Tarzan to keep the jungle in order.  The trailer doesn’t show us too much more outside of that but we get some idea as to what each character is about but motives are not yet clear:

What we can discern is that, Christoph Waltz is using Jane to lure Tarzan.  Is this another attempt to use Tarzan to take him to the gorillas to be hunted?  Also, Djimon Hounsou is the leader of a tribe of savages who don’t seem to keen on Tarzan returning to their jungle.  Then, there’s Samuel L. Jackson’s character who just seems excited for the prospect of meeting the legend known as Tarzan. Like we said, not all is clear.

However, what sticks out like a sore thumb is the apparent lack of English accent from Margot Robbie.  In the stories, Jane is a proper english woman who takes Tarzan back to England.  So far, is appears Robbie’s Jane has either dropped her accent or is actually American.  This small detail would be really disappointing if it is true.

It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (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 (Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.

The Legend of Tarzan hits theaters on July 1, 2016.  What do you think of the trailer?
