Remember the distinct ululating yell of Johnny Weissmuller? Weissmuller was the first actor, who starred in the lead role as Tarzan, the Ape Man in 1932. The yell was a creation of the movies based on what Edgar Rice Burroughs described in his books as simply “the victory cry of the bull ape.”
The Legend is now back in the big screen with Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) as the titular character and Margot Robbie (Suicide Squad) as Jane. The movie entitled, Legend of Tarzan, wouldn’t have the feel of authentic Tarzan without the jungle man jumping from terrifyingly high distances and swinging through trees with gorillas.
You might be a bit confused once the movie starts because Director David Yates’ (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) film breaks tradition on the usual Tarzan tale: The movie will be based a decade after the man’s departure from the jungle, already accustomed to aristocracy with his wife, Jane. Tarzan now looks dashing in a suit, much like a man of the time. In the movie, Tarzan abruptly decides to go back to the Congo, and you know what happens next.
