“Tarzan” Gets Chicago & LA Test Screenings

 

tumblr_nivb5q71lz1qi6ht9o1_1280

Alexander Skarsgard’s highly anticipated 2016 movie “Tarzan The Untamed” is getting its first test screening for a lucky audience in Chicago on Saturday. Director David Yates has previously used the Chicago cinema-going public to test out his Harry Potter films (You may have heard of them?). He has also attended at least a couple of the screenings himself. This Tarzan screening is very early, but it may be that the director / producers have a few different ideas, and want to gage the audience reaction before the movie is completed. It’s not clear if those in attendance will be able to make any public comments afterwards, but hopefully we might get one or two juicy titbits.

UPDATE: There is also now a test screening in Los Angeles on Monday night.

Margot Robbie – More On Tarzan

Margot Robbie has been talking to elmundo.es about her Hollywood career, including a little bit about Tarzan and Alexander Skarsgard. The interview has been written up in Spanish, but our wonderful site owner Barbara has translated any mention of Tarzan  for us. And whilst we are obviously always searching for the intellectual content of each article we couldn’t help but notice that Margot admits she has  “never seen a body like his”.

Alexander Skarsgard to star in “War On Everyone”

PF_5854

Rumors have been circulating for a few days now that Alexander Skarsgard is to appear in the new John Michael McDonagh movie “War On Everyone“.

Headgear Films have Alexander listed under the cast, along with Michael Pena.

UPDATE: IMDb are now showing Alexander at the top of the cast list.

And today Deadline seem to confirm his involvement, stating that he is playing the part of “Terry”. Terry is one of 2 crooked cops who are the film’s  central characters.

From Deadline

Tessa Thompson (Dear White People) has been set as the female lead opposite Alexander Skarsgard and Michael Pena in John Michael McDonagh’s indie feature War On Everyone. The film revolves around two corrupt cops who make money blackmailing criminals — until they come up against one who might be far more dangerous than they are. Thompson will play a former stripper who ultimately ends up in a relationship with Terry (Skarsgard). 

This seems to us good enough confirmation that Alexander now has this role in the movie. Below is the current synopsis from Headgear Films.

Looking Forward To 2016 Blockbusters Including Tarzan

tarzan

Den of Geek have included Alexander Skarsgard’s movie Tarzan (Tarzan The Untamed) in their list of blockbusters to look forward to next year.

Harry Potter director David Yates is in post-production on his live-action telling of the Tarzan story. His film stars Alexander Skarsgard in the title role, with Margot Robbie as Jane and Christoph Waltz as Captain Rom. Samuel L Jackson and John Hurt are also on board this one.

Perhaps the only doubt over the project is its release date as things stand. Will Warner Bros really release this opposite Spielberg’s The BFG? We’d be surprised if there wasn’t a release date shuffle in the coming months…

True Blood Alumni Update

Lucy-Griffiths-2

Time for a quick update of some of our favorite True Blood actors.

Eric’s Vampire sibling, actress Lucy Griffiths, is to star in AMC’s pilot Preacher - based on the (very) graphic novel of the same name. We wish Lucy all the best with this, her True Blood character was sorely underused (more wasted potential from a show that ended up being renown for it).

Joe Manganiello has joined his fellow alumni Tara Buck, in the cast of Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday.

“Diary of a teenage girl” is the most important coming-of-age movie in years

TheDiaryOfATeenageGirl8

Alexander Skarsgard’s movie “Diary of a teenage girl” opened the New Directors / New Films Festival in NYC last night, and following on from the reactions it received at both Sundance and Berlinale, the movie has been heaped with critical praise.

According to FilmSchoolRejects it is the “most important coming-of-age movie in years”.

When director and screenwriter Marielle Heller introduced her debut feature, The Diary of a Teenage Girl, at last night’s New Directors/New Films kickoff premiere in New York, she likened Phoebe Gloeckner’s novel to Catcher In the Rye for girls. The book, which features Gloeckner’s own original drawings and is reportedly loosely based on her own coming-of-age, making it a bit of a novel/graphic novel/autobiography hybrid, is just that seminal and that original, so it’s only fitting that Heller’s film is also an instant classic in its own right.

Heller’s film – a years-long passionate project – premiered back at Sundance in January, where it was almost instantaneously hailed as one of the best of the fest (I remember the cavalcade of tweets that clogged up my feed as soon as the film’s first screening let out, combined with the horrific panic when I realized there was no way I could make a subsequent screening of the film fit into my packed schedule) and then quickly snapped up by Sony Pictures Classics. It’s easy enough to describe the film as a coming-of-age story, but the film is deeply creative and uncomfortably honest in ways that are often missing from current coming-of-age stories. It cuts to the bone, and then it keeps going.
