Matt Damon battles monsters in the trailer for The Great Wall

Starring Matt Damon and directed by Zhang Yimou (HERO, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS), THE GREAT WALL tells the story of an elite force making a valiant stand for humanity on the world’s most iconic structure. This marks not only the first English-language production for Yimou, but also the largest film ever shot entirely in China. It also marks the longest Matt Damon's hair has ever been. A lot of firsts, here! Check it out!

This project was originally under the directing hands of Edward Zwick before he moved on to do JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK (note that he has a screenwriting credit), although I'm not too worried about Yimou taking over. Judging by his filmography, he obviously has an eye for some amazing visual details. My only hope is that the story provided works. I'd hate to have another 47 RONIN on our hands.

THE GREAT WALL hits theaters on February 17, 2016.
