The Great Wall Trailer

"What were they trying to keep out?" Universal has debuted the first official trailer for Zhang Yimou's new movie The Great Wall, produced by Legendary Pictures in China as one of the most expensive movies ever made in China. It's about the various mysteries of the construction of the Great Wall of China, and features an international cast lead by Matt Damon. Also featuring Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe, Andy Lau, Tian Jing, Eddie Peng, Numan Acar, Han Lu, Kenny Lin and Zhang Hanyu. As also expected with Zhang Yimou, this is visually astounding with some epic shots of the construction of the wall and immensely detailed costumes and big battles and everything else you could imagine… including some giant creatures.

Here's the first official trailer for Zhang Yimou's The Great Wall, direct from Legendary's YouTube:
