ab-intense images of Alexander Skarsgard in The Legend of Tarzan (and then the poster) we figured this meant that a trailer was imminent, and sure enough as soon as I got home last night and plopped on the sofa, ta-dah!
Oh well better late than never getting to stare at Alexander Skarsgard's half-naked body at all. Now for those of us (aka all of us) who were flummoxed by the sight of a Tarzan in pants, gasp horror et cetera, the trailer does give us a hint of hope...
The CG is still shaky on a lot of the shots of Skarsgard flipping around the jungle (I'll never get why studios allow trailers to come out and show images where the visuals aren't ready yet -- these first images are gonna color our opinions and set the tone for every single person coming at your movie until it's out, people!), but it really does look like Skarsgard could be trouser-less...
... in the first quick glimpses we get of him. Are these flashbacks to his Tarzan life before this movie's story starts? You probably know this movie's set long after Tarzan has moved to the Big City and learned to be a human person who sips tea, only to get dragged back by that lady friend of his who's always getting into trouble.
Him Tarzan, Jane troublemaker. Anyway it's impossible to tell really what's happening below the waist in these fast flashes (those damn pants would have to be flesh-colored) and since this isn't quite at the Zapruder Film level let's just focus on the shirtlessness we can be sure of, at least. Hit the jump for all of the pics...
Tarzan wearing pants?
In the immortal words of Adrien Brody in The Grand Budapest Hotel, "What the fuck is *this* shit?"
Skarsgard is like always nude, everywhere any time of the day. If he's not nude in a film about a feral guy famously clothed in only a loincloth, the studio has to be the culprit. Because he clearly likes showing off that bod.
The minute I heard Samuel L. Jackson's voice, the phrase "crash and burn" popped into my mind. I mean, Jackson is great, but seems too joltingly contemporary to fit in a Tarzan movie
