The whole point of Tarzan, basically, is that we civilized people are the *real* savages, which is not false, especially when you consider your own reaction to the below photos of Alexander Skarsgård's dewy eight-pack.

USA Today revealed (opens in new tab) the first official images of the Legend of Tarzan on Wednesday, along with the knowledge that the David Yates-led film will reverse the traditional jungle-to-Victorian-London story and begin with the protagonist returning to the Congo to save his home from Belgian imperialists. His wife Jane, played by a ginger Margot Robbie, will be as badass as ever, though, as a "really strong, assertive, beautifully knowledgeable, very sexy modern woman who can more than look after herself," Yates said.

Woot woot. July 1, here we come.
