This weekend MomStart will be swinging on a vine all the way to Beverly Hills, CA for The Legend of Tarzan press junket. That’s right, folks – Tarzan is headed back to the big screen, but not like you’ve ever seen him before. This live-action rendition will tell the story of Tarzan after the jungle. Tarzan and Jane are now married, but there’s still something missing in his life. When he gets invited back into the jungle, things do go as he’d hoped. The Legend of Tarzan will follow Tarzan and Jane back into the jungle for an adventure of a lifetime. There will be love, danger, and of course, lots of action!
To top it all off, Tarzan will be played by the talented, Alexander Skarsgård. He will be accompanied none other than, Margot Robbie, as Jane (cue the fangirling now). So where does MomStart come into the picture? We are so excited to announce that we will be attending and advanced screening of The Legend Of Tarzan and interviewing both of these incredible actors!
Now for the fun part – we want you to get involved by submitting your questions for the actors in the comments section below.
We can’t promise to ask every question, but we will definitely try! All that we ask is that you keep your questions focused on the film itself, as we want to really get into the minds of Tarzan and Jane. Your questions can be about the acting process or about making of the film. Be creative!
Be sure to follow along on social media for live updates during this event. We will be covering this event under the hashtag #LegendOfTarzan. You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to see what’s happening before it hits the blog!
We look forward to going on this epic adventure and hope that you get involved, too. Be sure to leave your Twitter handle below, so if we ask your question, we can shout you out!
In Theaters July 1, 2016
From Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures comes the action adventure “The Legend of Tarzan,” starring Alexander Skarsgård (HBO’s “True Blood”) as the legendary character created by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
The film also stars Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson (“Pulp Fiction,” the “Captain America” films), Margot Robbie (“The Wolf of Wall Street”), Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou (“Blood Diamond,” “Gladiator”), Oscar nominee John Hurt (“The Elephant Man,” the “Harry Potter” films), with Oscar winner Jim Broadbent (“Iris”), and two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz (“Inglourious Basterds,” “Django Unchained”).
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.
David Yates (the final four “Harry Potter” films, upcoming “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”) directed “The Legend of Tarzan” from a screenplay by Adam Cozad and Craig Brewer, story by Brewer and Cozad based on the Tarzan stories created by Burroughs. Legendary producer Jerry Weintraub (“Behind the Candelabra,” the “Ocean’s” trilogy) produced the film, together with David Barron (the “Harry Potter” films, “Cinderella”), Alan Riche (“Southpaw”) and Tony Ludwig (“Starsky & Hutch”). Susan Ekins, Nikolas Korda, Keith Goldberg, David Yates, Mike Richardson and Bruce Berman served as executive producers.
The behind-the-scenes creative team included director of photography Henry Braham (“The Golden Compass”), Oscar-winning production designer Stuart Craig (“Dangerous Liaisons,” “The English Patient,” the “Harry Potter” films), editor Mark Day (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Parts 1 & 2”), and Oscar-nominated costume designer Ruth Myers (“Emma,” “Unknown”).
“The Legend of Tarzan” was shot at Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden, as well as on location around the UK.
A Jerry Weintraub production, “The Legend of Tarzan” is slated for release on July 1, 2016. The film will be distributed in 2D and 3D in select theatres and IMAX by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.
