A 9-minute Chinese trailer has been released for Matt Damon‘s upcoming fantasy action film The Great Wall. I don’t recall ever seeing a 9-minute trailer before! It’s obviously loaded with tons of new footage and this movie looks like it’s going to be a crazy fun epic! The visuals of this film look freakin’ stunning!
The trailer spends a good amount of time introducing us to five of the main Chinese characters in the film. I have no idea what the trailer is saying, but I still enjoyed watching it.
The story was inspired by the construction of The Great Wall of China but there’s a whole cool fantasy element to it that involves an army of warriors battling giant creatures.
The Great Wall tells the story of an elite force making a valiant stand for humanity on the world’s most iconic structure.
The film was directed by Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of Flying Daggers), and it’s the first English-language production for him. It’s also the largest film ever shot entirely in China. The Great Wall also stars Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe, Andy Lau, Tian Jing, Eddie Peng, Numan Acar, Han Lu, Kenny Lin, and Zhang Hanyu.
