Alexander Skarsgård's first cheat meal occurred more than five months into his training. Skarsgård had been on a very strict diet for five straight months, avoiding any fat completely, as he was in the process of developing an eight-pack. He said, "It was a Sunday, and we were training hard in the gym, and my trainer saw that my will to live was fading. He told me to put down the weights and he took me to lunch. That day he let me order whatever I wanted. I got to eat pizza, pasta, tiramisu. I get emotional just talking about that day." On the last day of filming, the crew congratulated him on the end of his diet by gifting him with a huge "Banoffee Pie," a British dessert. Skarsgård said that to celebrate, he ate the entire pie by himself in a single sitting. See more »

Good story, backed by appealing visual effects, impressive direction and solid performance - what more did you expect from "The Legend of Tarzan"..and guys, you are missing the point, the 1st half of the story portrayed a civilized John Clayton who initially refused to go back to the wild as Tarzan. As the story unfolded, John did visit Congo on an invitation (from King Solomon) orchestrated by a mercenary (Capt Leon Rom) hired by King Solomon who was exploiting the Congolese people and the rich mineral resources of Congo. The true intention was to trade Tarzan off to an enemy Tribal leader (his son was killed by Tarzan) and get precious diamonds in return, to fund the King's Army. Tarzan however believed in his instinct and went to Congo to see for himself, the wrath brought upon by King Solomon on his tribesmen and Congolese people. The story takes an interesting turn when Capt Leon abducts Tarzan's wife Zane as a compensation (also as a hostage) after his futile attempt to capture John aka Tarzan. The rest of the movie reveals how John Clayton transforms himself into his wild avatar Tarzan and rescues his wife and eventually saves Congo from slavery and tyranny imposed by King Solomon. A must watch !!
