ET has a sneak peek at a ripped Alexander Skarsgard in Tarzan.

Skarsgard plays the titular character in the action-adventure movie, who is called back to his former home in the jungle after acclimating to life in London. Tarzan's presence is required to investigate the activities at a mining encampment.

Tarzan clearly is "no normal man," as Jane (Margot Robbie) says in the trailer. This is made evident through the character's primal yell, catlike agility and washboard abs.

The True Blood star bulked up for the role, which he said he accomplished by lifting weights and eating chicken.

Tarzan, also starring Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson, opens July 1, 2016.
