Trailer for The Great Wall

Starring Matt Damon, Jing Tian, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe and Andy Lau.  The Great Wall arrives in theaters February 17, 2017.According to director Zhang Yimou the film will be rooted in the real history of the Great Wall of China with the added element of monsters.  Here’s a piece of his interview with Entertainment Weekly:

“The film takes place about 1,000 years ago. At its core, it is a period piece and an action film. The fantasy element does play a major role because of the monsters. But, what makes our film unique is that these are ancient Chinese monsters. Even though it’s a fantasy movie, we filmed it in a very realistic way. We want it to feel like the events actually happened. Other than the monster, all aspects of this film are backed by either scientific or historical research.”
