The Great Wall – Brand New Trailer!

Coming from evocative director Zhang Yimou, however, it could just be my own personal issues. The film revolves around an elite force who defend humanity on top of the titular iconic structure.

Hmmm.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

Hmm.

There are thoughts surrounding this trailer for The Great Wall. I haven’t quite formed them yet. Don’t get me wrong, this brand new trailer is stunning, but there is something not quite gelling about Matt Damon in this ancient China epic. I wonder what it is.

Ok so I’m not the only one who has picked up on Matt Damon and Pedro Pascal’s “white saviour” trope that runs throughout these trailers. And in some respects, they are right in saying that we shouldn’t judge before we see it. However, come on Damon, you cannot deny that it is there!

What do you think?


THE GREAT WALL IS OUT 24th FEBRUARY 2017
