 on 27 January at 11am it’s time for THE LEGEND OF TARZAN. The gentleman summoned to #10 Downing Street by the Prime Minister of England is John Clayton III, fifth Earl of Greystoke, and a member of the House of Lords.  But half a world away, and what seems like a lifetime ago, he had gone by another name…a name that has since become legend.  Tarzan. It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård from Diary of a Teenage Girl and HBO’s True Blood) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Margot Robbie from The Wolf Of Wall Street)), at his side.  Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the King of Belgium’s envoy, (Christoph Waltz – Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained).    But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash. Age Restriction 10PG.
