The Great Wall — TV Spot


added: Thu, Jan 12th '17

Matt Damon is "going to stay ... and fight." But he doesn't exactly know what he's fighting against in the new 30-second commercial for "The Great Wall."

In this action-adventure fantasy thriller set in ancient China -- which not only marks Damon's first foray into Chinese filmmaking but is also the first English-language production from renowned Chinese director Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of Flying Daggers) -- Damon plays a European mercenary who finds himself being held as a suspected thief by an army of elite Chinese soldiers stationed at the Great Wall of China.

When Damon's character discovers that these highly-trained warriors have all sworn to defend the wall against mythical lizard-like monsters, he chooses to stay and fight ... to the death if need be.

The film is one of the first major co-production between Hollywood and China, and is among the biggest budgeted Chinese films in history. It will open in the U.S. on February 17th.

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 the world's most iconic structure. The first English-language production for Yimou is the largest film ever shot entirely in China.
