The Legend Of Tarzan Trailer


When Lord John and Lady Greystoke found themselves stranded in strange jungle, their only instinct was to survive. Lord Greystoke built a shelter in the trees and made a home for him, his wife and his new born son, John Greystoke Jr.. As time passed, the jungle grew wilder and both the lord and lady lose their lives. John is found in his crib by a nursing Gorilla who decides to take the baby and nurse him as her own.

When a boat is shipwrecked, Tarzan meets his Jane and the two fall in love. Wishing to seek out his homeland and learn more about where he comes from Tarzan and Jane return to London where Lord John Greystoke Jr is soon found to be just of much of a gentleman that of his father.

Evanna Lynch: 'Hollywood Is Meaner Than The World Of Harry Potter'


Evanna Lynch David Yates

The Irish actress now lives in Los Angeles, where she's chasing her next big role, and she admits the directors she's meeting at auditions are not as kind and gentle as David Yates, who she worked with on the last four Potter movies.

"I've had auditions here in L.A. where they are so rude," Evanna tells the Irish Independent. "They look at you like you're nothing and they just want to get through you and that just makes me crawl inside myself. I was very lucky to have David Yates bring me out.

"If he sees something he doesn't like, he won't say it directly, he'll just talk to you and ask about the character. His philosophy is that you know the character best and that really gives you the power back and makes you think for yourself."

Daniel Radcliffe Wants To Direct

Daniel Radcliffe wants to try his hand at directing.

The 25-year-old actor would like to try sitting behind the camera, rather than in front, at some point in his career as he's developed a flare for visualising the artistic and dramatic aspects when he's been shooting a movie.

Speaking to Variety, he said: ''I would love to direct. I do it in my head when I'm watching other directors direct. 'No, don't say that to them!' I think I'm quite good with people. Part of being a director is knowing how different actors work in different ways. I'd enjoy it.''
