The New Tarzan Trailer Is Very Terrifying

Video: It doesn't have Oscar Isaac cosplaying at Ivan Ooze, but The Legend of Tarzan also had a new trailer drop today. It's definitely worth watching -- if only because the movie looks like an uncanny horror movie where pretty much everyone is scary as hell.

Seriously! The trailer begins with apes murdering a guy and stealing his baby. Then there's a bunch of British soldiers, who are clearly going to bring some unwelcome imperialism to Tarzan's jungle. Then there's Christoph Waltz, playing the same semi-psychotic villain he plays in seemingly every other movie. And then there's a terrifying indigenous group. And then Tarzan fights an ape who hits him with a clothesline so brutal it looks like it would instantly break Tarzan's neck.

And then there's the stampede.

The slow rumble, Waltz looking off in the distance, everyone else confused and fearful -- and then A MILLION GODDAMN WILDEBEESTS run through the town, undoubtedly grinding every single person there into a fine paste. This is terrifying, if only because Tarzan is clearly willing to murder an entire town of people if someone kidnaps Jane.

The Legend of Tarzan opens June 30. I'm not sure it will have any more box office success than the last adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' series (that is, John Carter). But if Christoph Waltz is going to die at the hooves of a bunch of wildebeests, I'm definitely intrigued.

    I'm concerned about the CGI in this movie, it looks extremely dodgy. I'm sure it'll be tweaked before the final movie comes out, but yeah, not very believable at all.

      Couldn't Agree more. Those buffalo(?) running looks extremely fake. Yet another movie over using CGI again, simply because they can and its easier. Its like watching a 3d animated movie. Directors need to cut out all the over top action and focus on quality scenes that don't need million things blowing up at once. Lets be real how much damage can a man swinging a vine really do?

    Keep getting this confused with Jungle Book

      Came here to say exactly this.

        I was like Indian kid turned into white vampire? huh? 0_o
