Starring global superstar Matt Damon and directed by one of the most breathtaking visual stylists of our time, Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of Flying Daggers), Legendary’s The Great Wall tells the story of an elite force making a valiant stand for humanity on one of the world’s most impressive architectural feats. The first English-language production for Yimou, it is also the largest film ever shot entirely in China. Among its cast are stars Tian Jing, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe and Andy Lau.
Yimou is known for his stunning visual epics Hero and Curse of the Golden Flower, but even those large productions pale in comparison to his latest venture. Indeed, the film represents one of the most ambitious projects ever undertaken in China, and it will be fascinating to see how the movie does internationally given its high-profile cast.
The Great Wall is in UK cinemas from February 17.
