So, in a massive surprise, Hollywood has decided to give us yet another reboot. This time, it’s the vine-swinging Lord Greystoke, alias Tarzan (played by Alexander Skarsgaard and an assortment of muscles).
Jane is played by Margot Robbie, who by the looks of things has mastered the important thespian art of wearing flimsy clothes while standing in the pouring rain.
Also along for the ride are shouty expositor Samuel L. Jackson, moustache-twirling villain Christoph Waltz, and Hollywood’s go-to noble savage, Djimon Hounsou.
Edgar Rice Burroughs’ creation has been filmed several times, most famously in a series of movies starring Johnny Weismuller.
