The Legend of Tarzan review: “Subtle this film isn’t…”

29 June 2016 3:07 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Legend of Tarzan review: Edgar Rice Burroughs’ literary character gets another big screen adaptation. But do David Yates and Alexander Skarsgård do the loincloth proud?

Kat Hughes check out David Yates’ latest. Here is her The Legend Of Tarzan review.

The Legend of Tarzan Review

The story of the rich Victorian Lord lost in the jungle as a child has been told in various forms for decades. A long line of actors have donned the famous loincloth to tell the tale of Tarzan, the latest being True Blood‘s Alexander Skarsgård.

Rather than tell yet another origin story The Legend of Tarzan is set ten years after Tarzan, now living as John Clayton, has left the jungle. Cohabiting with him is Jane (Margot Robbie) and whilst on the surface the duo have the perfect life, it seems that all isn’t well in paradise. Enter Samuel L Jackson‘s »

Box Office: ‘BFG,’ ‘Tarzan’ Struggling as Hollywood Faces Gloomy Independence Day

29 June 2016 1:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A lackluster summer at the box office could get even worse if there aren’t some fireworks over July 4th.

Don’t look for newcomers “The BFG” and “The Legend of Tarzan,” however, to add to the pyrotechnics. They carry hefty budgets and big name directors in Steven Spielberg and David Yates, but aren’t expected to connect with U.S. audiences. Both could rank among the year’s biggest flops, unless foreign moviegoers suddenly get passionate about a friendly giant and a jungle king.

Look for “The Bfg” to eke out $30 million from 3,357 theaters over the four-day holiday; an anemic result given its $140 million price tag and a sign that Spielberg, despite a resume that includes “Raiders of the Lost Ark” and “Jurassic Park,” may not be the draw he once was among younger crowds. He’s spent the better part of the past decade serving as cinema’s preeminent history teacher, »

Margot Robbie stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to promote her new film, The Legend of Tarzan, which also stars True Blood alum Alexander Skarsgård and hits theaters this Friday. And while Robbie spent some of her time on Kimmel discussing that other big movie she has coming out this summer, DC’s Suicide Squad, which debuts on August 5, she and Kimmel used the majority of the interview to talk about her plans for her 26th birthday on Saturday and what she’s done to celebrate her birthdays in the past. Although Robbie shared a few stories about her past couple of birthdays, the one that stood out to Kimmel and

Film Review: ‘The Legend of Tarzan’

29 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A talky and mostly turgid attempt by British director David Yates to build on the epic vision he brought to the final four Harry Potter movies via another beloved literary hero, “The Legend of Tarzan” is sequel, origin story and racially sensitive revisionist history lesson all in one. What it isn’t is much fun for anyone who’s seen Edgar Rice Burroughs’ “ape man” in any of his previous incarnations. While name recognition alone should snare a fair number of those who prefer their pulp heroes endowed with superpowers, between this and last year’s “Pan,” evidence suggests Warner Brothers ought to leave the live-action reboots to Disney.

As it turns out, Disney scored a double victory earlier this year with “The Jungle Book,” not only getting out in front of Warners’ Andy Serkis-directed version of the same, but also stealing the thunder from the rival studio’s other jungle child tentpole. »

20 Pictures That Will Remind You Just How Handsome Alexander Skarsgard Is

23 June 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

To say that Alexander Skarsgard looks sexy as f*ck in the upcoming Legend of Tarzan movie would be a serious understatement. And furthermore, getting high doses of sex appeal from the actor is nothing new. Alexander has sizzled on screen as Eric Northman on True Blood, and he's given us heart eyes in real life with his various strapping outings, hot shirtless vacation photos, and even pantless award show appearances. And that's just the tip of the (rapidly melting) Alexander Skarsgard iceberg, if you catch our drift. »

You may recall last year that a very odd robbery took place which saw £14 million (though estimated at £200 million) worth of jewels stolen from London’s Hatton Garden Vault, where the collective ages of the four ringleaders came to 278 years. Well, now Signature Entertainment have secured the UK distribution rights for a movie adaptation of the robbery, with filming now underway in and around London.

The Hatton Garden Job picks up with a mysterious thief, who is presented with an opportunity to take down the exclusive Hatton Garden Vault just days after leaving prison. It’s an old school job, requiring old school skills. With real life twists and turns as though written for a movie, The Hatton Garden Job follows our convict recruiting a team of veteran British criminals all eager for one final chance at glory. Together they must stay ahead of the law, dodge hired mercenaries and »

22 June 2016 4:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As we pointed out this morning, it’s been 15 years since The Fast and the Furious opened in theaters. Now the director of that first film in the franchise is capitalizing on that anniversary and announcing the casting for his new movie by invoking the street racing movie that launched what’s now a behemoth of a heist action franchise. “Coinciding with the 15 Year Anniversary of Rob Cohen’s 2001 blockbuster hit…” this press release begins. Maggie Grace (Taken, Lost) and Ryan Kwanten (True Blood) are joining Cohen’s Category 5. Here’s what the upcoming action-thriller is about:  Category 5 follows a team of tech hackers embarking on a $600 million robbery from a coastal U.S. Mint facility the same time a disastrous Category 5 storm is set to strike.

Winter Is Coming, and It’s About Time HBO Changed Its Game Plan

22 June 2016 4:57 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO has had some rocky times of late, but at least in cancelling “Vinyl,” it made a Sansa decision, not a Jon Snow decision.

In the most recent episode of “Game of Thrones,” HBO’s flagship drama, Sansa did something that was deeply unpalatable to her in order to serve a larger purpose. But her brother, Jon Snow, made some calls that simply weren’t pragmatic given the reality he faced.

Cancelling the flawed “Vinyl” was the right move, and one that might indicate that the network is finally ready to fight a realistic battle with the army it has and the tactics it needs.

For years, once it had established itself as House Prestige with “Sex and the City” and “The Sopranos,” HBO resided in the kind of lofty tower that allowed it to gaze upon the TV fray from afar. Like the Lannisters, the HBO clan only moved with the most connected movers and shakers »
