New Legend of Tarzan trailer pits the king of the jungle against countless enemies


The jungle is getting wilder in the new trailer for the Warner Bros. film The Legend of Tarzan. Released today, the new preview paints a clearer picture of the dangerous situation the king of the jungle is drawn into years after making a life for himself in England. The threat is enough to make anyone cower, but luckily, as is pointed out, this hero is “no normal man.”

The trailer, like the first, shows the incredible strength and skill of Tarzan (played by Alexander Skarsgard), even after having become “civilized.” We see him swinging himself around the vines of the jungle like he never left. (It must be just like riding a bike — you never forget how to do it.) New footage takes the preview beyond that, though, and we see more of Tarzan’s backstory, including his parents, and the enormous danger to him now.

“Your husband’s wildness disturbs me,” says Captain Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz) to Jane (Margot Robbie). He has her captive and is using her to try to manipulate Tarzan. Jane’s not willing to play the damsel, as we see in the preview, and she has total faith in her husband. “A normal man can do the impossible to save the woman he loves,” she says.

The impossible sounds about right. As George Washington Williams (Samuel L. Jackson) says to Tarzan about the men who want to do him harm, “There’s a thousand men down there, 20,000 more on the way. We don’t stand a chance.”

It wouldn’t be much of a movie if Tarzan didn’t actually stand a chance, of course. Based on all of the action-packed fight scenes shown in the trailer, he’ll put up a good fight. We’ll see how it turns out when The Legend of Tarzan swings into theaters on July 1.

3 great sci-fi movies on Hulu you need to watch in April 2024
A close up of one of the giant robots in Pacific Rim.

One of the things that's become clear with the recent arrival of Hulu on Disney+ is that the former is more of a real streamer than the latter. If you want sci-fi movies on Disney+, there aren't many options beyond Star Wars and a handful of live-action movies that were produced by Disney itself. Hulu, on the other hand, can pull from 20th Century Fox's R-rated sci-fi flicks like Alien and Predator, while also adding an assortment of modern science fiction movies from other studios.

To make things easier for you, we've put together this list of the three sci-fi movies on Hulu that you need to watch in April. Only one of the three films is on loan from a rival studio, which means that it won't be around on Hulu in May. But all three are going to give you the science fiction fix that you need.
The Fifth Element (1997)
