Well, I’ve got to be honest — didn’t really see this one coming. That new CGI Tarzan flick will apparently find the jungle kid duking it out with alien monsters. Or, something.

A new trailer for the CGI project based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic tale of a boy raised by apes reveals they’re adding a whole lot of sci-fi stuff to the original formula. After introducing us to Tarzan and Jane, this new trailer takes a big twist —focusing on some crashed alien tech that an evil corporation is fighting to obtain.

The only person who can stop him? Tarzan (apparently), who will be battling corporate thugs and weird alien monsters to keep the jungle safe. Admittedly, this is a little weird. But, hey, everything is better with aliens. Right?

Check out the new trailer above and let us know what you think. The flick is set to open in May 2014.
