Alexander Skarsgård's transformation was carried out in two major phases, the bulking and the cutting phase. During the bulking phase, for the first four months, Skarsgård did four to five weight training workouts per week, with additional abdominal workouts interspersed between them to work out for six to seven days per week. He did not do any cardio during this phase, as the focus was on adding mass. He did about sixteen sets for major muscle groups like legs, twelve sets for delts, legs and triceps and over twenty sets for the back. The rep range was about twelve reps per set, which he gradually reduced due to increasing weights, but he never did less than six to eight reps per set. He also consumed a whopping seven thousand calories per day. His trainer, Magnus Lygdback, remarked, "It was insane. What I eat in the entire day, he would eat in a single meal." Skarsgård ended the phase by putting on twenty-five pounds and getting up to 225 pounds in body weight. For the body-sculpting and cutting phase, his calories were dropped and the workout sessions were increased to about fourteen per week, including cardio workouts to shed fat. He was put on a diet devoid of sugar, gluten, wheat, dairy and alcohol, leading up to the start of filming. See more »
Chief Mbongas son kills Tarzans surrogate mother. You see him using an arrow with a forged iron head. A jungle tribe would not have the skills nor the tools to create such an arrowhead. They would use a tip hardened in fire. See more »
It's simple. If what you want is a live-action version of the Disney cartoon, or a remake of those old "Me Tarzan, you Jane" camp fests, this isn't the film for you. If you don't like the character to begin with, this isn't the film for you. The vast majority of critics who thus far have given the movie unfavorable reviews fall into one or both of these two categories. It's disheartening, and it's so obvious they don't really know anything about the character and don't care enough to learn.
If, however, you have yearned for the day in cinema when Edgar Rice Burroughs' epic hero is treated with the gravitas and respect he deserves, and if you enjoy epic jungle adventure with a heart, by all means GO SEE THIS MOVIE! It is phenomenally good! Think of it like you would a dish of food. Let's say spiced curry. If you don't like spiced curry, you won't like it no matter how well it is prepared. This movie is for those who enjoy spiced curry. For those who love it, this is the most delicious dish you're ever likely to taste.
