There have been quite a fair few adaptations of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s classic tale of the man raised by apes, and while I must admit never to being much of a fan of the vine swinging pant-less wonder, this teaser trailer of the new adaptation from Germany looks visually sumptuous with no Phil Collins in sight (still can’t forgive him for beating Matt Stone and Trey Parker at the Oscars).
While not giving much away in terms of story, it is a teaser after all, it remains to be seen whether the advanced mo-cap of Kellan Lutz (The Immortals) will fall too far into uncanny valley or be a visual delight. At the moment, his face looks a bit odd, but his hair looks glorious.

Directed by Reinhard Klooss, Tarzan will be released in 2013.
