After years of building up a reputation for beautiful martial arts epics like Hero, House of Flying Daggers and Curse of the Golden Flower, Chinese director Zhang Yimou has been slowly working towards his first major Hollywood film. A few years ago he was attached to direct the Robert Ludlum adaptation The Parsifal Mosaic, but it has since fallen into development hell. So instead, next year he will deliver a $135 million international blockbuster called The Great Wall that is a co-production of Legendary Pictures, China Film Group and LeVision. The movie stars Matt Damon and Andy Lau in an alternate history where China built The Great Wall to keep out not only human invaders, but also giant monsters. The first trailer has arrived online and (not surprisingly) it features massive armies, colourful period costumes and conspicuous CG effects. I’m sure it will be huge overseas, but can this movie crack the U.S. market as well? The Great Wall hits theatres in the U.S. on Feb. 17th, 2017; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
