So what does the trailer tell us?
The trailer does not tell us much but it does look rather interesting. It is looking like a twist to the story of The Great Wall of China as the tag line appears to be “what were they trying to hide?”. I am sure if Donald Trump wins Presidency (I cannot believe we have to consider this now) then he will be one of the first audience members to watch this film for hints and tips so he can build his promised wall.
Matt Damon seems to keep himself busy recently – in this trailer you cannot tell what type of role he is playing. Is he one of the chiefs? One of the soldiers? Who knows but I am sure the upcoming trailers will give more indication of what he will be doing in the film.
I did a little research into this and found some interesting facts:
- The director Zhang Yimou is considered to be one of the most breathtaking visual stylists of our time. You should be familiar with his work with Hero and House of Flying Daggers.
- Another interesting fact; this will be the first English-language production for this director and it is also the largest film ever shot entirely in China.
Damon and Yimou – you have a lot of expectations with this one. Hopefully, the film delivers!
