July 1st is the big day! The Legend of Tarzan is coming to theaters everywhere! My husband and I saw the trailer for this during one of date nights and I definitely want to see it. I like that this time the story is being told with a twist. It is not just the story of Tarzan growing up in the jungle. It is more about his return 10 years later. The trailer was in 3D and the parts we saw were great. I am looking forward to seeing an epic battle! 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. It has been years since the man once Continue Reading »

Pictures is bringing The Legend of Tarzan to a theater near you.
