Stunning The Legend Of Tarzan Trailer Swings In

Looking ripped and ready to bring the latest iteration of classic character Tarzan to life, Alexander Skarsgård certainly hasn't been holding back when it comes to working out for his latest role.

Joined by the likes of Samuel L. Jackson, Margot Robbie and Christoph Waltz, this live-action adventure looks to bring out the best in the leading man as he acclimatises to life within the jungle.

While there is a distinct lack of classic Phil Collins, this new-age telling of Tarzan and Jane's story looks visually breathtaking, expansive and totally and utterly immersive.

You can enjoy the trailer below, along with the film's synopsis.

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

First Trailer For Steven Spielberg's The BFG

If you, like me, were slightly obsessed with Roald Dahl's tales of adventure and quirky characters then it will come as an absolute delight that the first look at the film adaptation of The BFG has arrived.

Cementing Mark Rylance in the role of the Big Friendly Giant, the teaser gives us little glimpses of the larger-than-life title character, as well as young Sophie, who is set for one hell of an adventure.

With a cast including Bill Hader, Jemaine Clement, Rafe Spall and Rebecca Hall, as well as being directed by blockbuster royalty Steven Spielberg, this one is bound to be a monster of a hit!

Watch the new trailer below.

The BFG (Mark Rylance), while a giant himself, is a Big Friendly Giant and nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24-feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and keeps to himself for the most part. Giants like Bloodbottler (Bill Hader) and Fleshlumpeater (Jemaine Clement) on the other hand, are twice as big and at least twice as scary and have been known to eat humans, while the BFG prefers Snozzcumbers and Frobscottle. Upon her arrival in Giant Country, Sophie, a precocious 10-year-old girl from London, is initially frightened of the mysterious giant who has brought her to his cave, but soon comes to realize that the BFG is actually quite gentle and charming, and, having never met a giant before, has many questions. The BFG brings Sophie to Dream Country where he collects dreams and sends them to children, teaching her all about the magic and mystery of dreams.

Having both been on their own in the world up until now, their affection for one another quickly grows. But Sophie’s presence in Giant Country has attracted the unwanted attention of the other giants, who have become increasingly more bothersome. Says Spielberg, “It’s a story about friendship, it’s a story about loyalty and protecting your friends and it’s a story that shows that even a little girl can help a big giant solve his biggest problems.” Sophie and the BFG soon depart for London to see the Queen (Penelope Wilton) and warn her of the precarious giant situation, but they must first convince the Queen and her maid, Mary (Rebecca Hall), that giants do indeed exist. Together, they come up with a plan to get rid of the giants once and for all.
