First look at The Great Wall Starring Matt Damon

I definitely have placed this film high on my must-see list for next year. Based on the new trailer released this morning,  The Great Wall is going to be something I’m curious to see– not only because it should be visually stunning but also because of the story line and choice of casting.

The film includes an A-list cast of east meets west. Along side Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal and Willem Dafoe, we will also see Chinese stars Andy Lau, Jing Tian, pop star Lu Han, Eddie Peng, Zhang Hanyu, Lin Gengzin, Zeng Kai, Chen Zuedong, Huang Xuan, and others.

This big budget film directed by Zhang Yimou (House of Flying Daggers, Hero) is set in China in the 15th century. A group of British soldiers discover the construction and the mysterious circumstances surrounding it.

But wait…. What was the wall being built for? Who, or what, were they protecting themselves from?

Pleeeeease be good!

The theatre release date is set for February 17, 2017.

Here’s the official trailer that was just released….
