Matt Damon’s Epic The Great Wall Is Good News For Fantasy Action Fans

Dragons, Chinese warriors and Matt Damon fight each other in what seems to be a great epic

Matt Damon is Jason Bourne but he’s also many other things – including a warrior of the west fighting with his Asian counterparts against legendary beasts atop the Great Wall in the film titled The Great Wall. The trailer promises some fantastic action sets and fights that are in line with some of the most glorious battle scenes that we have seen in films. Along with Matt Damon, The Great Wall stars the ever-dependable Willem Dafoe and several others.

The Zhang Nimou film is directed by Tony Gilroy, Carlo Bernard, Doug Miro, Max Brooks, Edward Zwick, and Marshall Herskovitz.

The trailer even spills out some of the story. Matt is a warrior of the West who is captured by the Chinese after a misunderstanding. He is released only when the Chinese territory is attacked by mysterious monsters, whom they now must fight for mere survival. Everything about the film looks well-made, with an impeccable eye for detail. The Chinese armor is almost comic book style and look fantastic. We are eagerly awaiting this one.

The film is all set for a release in the US February 27, 2017.
