BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Thanks to the power of CGI, you’d think that the amount of vine swinging actually done by Alexander Skarsgard for the new movie The Legend of Tarzan would be kept to a minimum. This, however, wasn’t the case on director David Yates’ set.
The story of Tarzan is one about the conflict between nature and civilization. The new trailer for this summer’s The Legend of Tarzan doesn’t simply imply this conflict. It includes animals rampaging through a city.
We’re not sure if you’ve heard yet, but Zootopia is kind of a big deal and seems primed for a sequel. Before that happens, however, there are a ton of Disney movies we'd like to see get a followup first.
Disney animation seems to go in cycles. You have the classic era that brought us Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and the Disney Renaissance that brought us Beauty and the Beast, but there's also other times, when their work is viewed as less that spectacular.
The Legend Of Tarzan is just one of numerous blockbusters we have to look forward to this summer. But why should we be excited? Click inside to find out.
We are weeks away from closing the books on 2015, and while there are still numerous blockbusters preparing to drop between now and New Year’s Day – from Star Wars: The Force Awakens to The Revenant and The Hateful Eight -- we’re not ashamed to admit that we’re jumping the gun a tad and starting to look forward to the sheer number of eye-popping features that are going to entertain us in 2016.
Aside from the recent production drama, we’ve heard very little about Tarzan, so when Cinema Blend was in Mexico visiting the set of Spectre, we decided to get an update from Christoph Waltz, who told us how this Tarzan film will be different from its predecessors.
Following on from the flop of Pan, Warner Bros. have a new blockbuster to worry about as Tarzan is apparently in a bit of a mess. And it's all Warner Bros.' own doing.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one: there are some conspiracy theorists out there who think that Walt Disney Animation secretly made Tarzan the long-lost brother of Anna and Elsa from Frozen. That would mean there’s a secret shared cinematic universe of Disney, but what’s the real story behind this theory?
July 2016 is shaping up to be an awesome year for blockbuster cinema. Don't believe us? Then check out what is in store!
Skarsgård is looking to film for his next great adventure. And coming soon, he'll be a wild thing in the David Yates-directed Tarzan, which has now rolled into production.
Tarzan will be released in 3D. A slew of writers worked on the screenplay, including John August, Marianne Wibberley, and Adam Cozad. Warner’s 2016 summer will kick off with Batman-Superman, another blockbuster with no official title yet. Where do we hand in our money?
While Robbie was largely unknown prior to Wolf rolling out, several more are catching on to her rising star, casting her in anticipated parts of upcoming potential blockbusters. Does she have range? Can she help carry a movie like Tarzan? We’ll find out soon enough.
Yates and Co. are hoping to get a greenlight from Warner after offering the studio a five-minute pre-visualization video detailing how the film could work. Something tells me casting one of the more popular character actors in Hollywood will help that along as well.
It’s always the same songs. There are about a dozen beloved, universally recognized classic Disney tracks, and they repeatedly populate, in some order, Top 10 lists, cover version CDs and various productions. I get it.
while Tarzan doesn’t have a Jane just yet, he may have found an adversary, as Variety reports Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz is in talks to join the film. And all of a sudden, I’m “in talks” to be a lot more excited about this movie. Not that the Yates/Skarsgard pair-up isn’t exciting enough, but the project was thrown into turnaround back in April due to budget concerns. It’s nice to see that Waltz is part of the reason it’s swinging back into pre-production planning.
For those who really want to see Skarsgard swinging around the jungle, there is some good news: insiders are saying that there is a possibility that the project could be resurrected in 2014, and Yates remains interested in bringing the Edgar Rice Burroughs character back to the big screen. We'll just have to wait and see if he will ever get the chance.
With two Oscars nominations already behind her, not to mention the surprise horror hit Mama, Jessica Chastain pretty much has the world at her feet. Does she really want to wear a loincloth for her next step?
The requirements for playing Tarzan aren't especially lengthy, but they are stringent. You must have excellently defined muscles. You must look half decent in a long, stringy wig. And you must be able to bellow the iconic Tarzan scream, preferably while swinging from vines and also wearing a loincloth
There's been talk for a while now of the return of Tarzan, the Edgar Rice Burroughs character who has been depicted around 89 times on screen already. Twilight's Kellan Lutz is at work on his own 3D motion-capture version, and Warner Bros. has been developing their take for a while now, at one point attaching Hustle & Flow and Footloose director Craig Brewer
