The Legend of Tarzan is a Warner Bros. Pictures action movie directed by David Yates and released in 2016. It is based on a fictional figure created by Edgar Rice Burroughs in the film, which was written by Adam Cozad and Craig Brewer and stars Alexander Skarsgard as the title character and Samuel L. Jackson, Margot Robbie, Djimon Hounsou, Jim Broadbent, and Christoph Waltz in supporting roles. Its plot involves John Clayton (Tarzan), who, after relocating to London, is persuaded by George Washington Williams to return to his previous home in the African jungles to look into slavery charges.
Principal photography started on June 21, 2014, and ended four months later at Warner Bros. Leavesden Studios in the United Kingdom. On June 29, 2016, the film premiered at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, and on July 1, 2016, it was released theatrically in the United States in 2D, 3D, IMAX, and IMAX 3D. It made $356 million worldwide on a $180 million budget, and reviewers gave it mixed reviews.
The directors were particularly concerned with making Africa appear authentic, given that the film was shot entirely in England, with the exception of six weeks in Gabon, when they filmed the background by helicopter without the cast. At Warner Bros.’ Leavesden studios, a functional waterfall and a 100-foot-long collapsible pier were built.
