It’s no secret in Hollywood that to make bank at the box office, having your movie show in China is a major step in the right direction. So it’s just as well that Matt Damon’s latest role sees him teaming up with China’s biggest influencers including visionary director Zhang Yimou and actor Andy Lau.
Set during the Northern Song Dynasty, The Great Wall tells an alternative story about China’s greatest structure, as an elite force makes a stand for humanity against terrifying creatures. Check out the film’s first trailer below:
The Great Wall is in fact the most expensive film to be made in China, but will no doubt see audiences rushing into cinemas to see the wonderful special effects. Game of Thrones fans will also be pleased to see Pedro Pascal in a major role, which hopefully means he’ll be gracing the big screen more and more in the coming years.
The film will be released in China sometime this December and in New Zealand and Australia on February 16, 2017 and on February 17, 2017 in the US and UK.
