Lundgren will play King Nereus, the ruler of the kingdom of Xebel, who claims Aquaman’s love interest Mera (played by Amber Heard) as his own and wishes Aquaman dead.

Movie Review: The Great Wall
eelyajekiM   |  

The Great Wall starring Matt Damon

The Great Wall
Director: Zhang Yimou
Screenwriter: Carlo Bernard, Doug Miro, Tony Gilroy
Cast: Matt Damon, Jing Tian, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe, Andy Lau
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 104 Minutes
Release Date: February 17, 2017

One would expect something like The Great Wall to live up to its title. History tells us that The Great Wall of China was constructed with the purpose of defense, border control, and trade regulation. In Zhang Yimou‘s film, we learn that it had another purpose: to protect the nation of China from the Tao Tei, giant green scaly beasts that have ravaged the country for ages. This would not be the first time that a film has depicted history and mix it with myth and monsters.

Of course, one of the biggest concerns surrounding The Great Wall is the blatant whitewashing that has been a part of the marketing campaign since the very beginning. Matt Damon has been the face of this film. Despite the film’s majority Chinese cast, Chinese director, and Chinese financiers, the film still believed it needed to have a big name in order to be a big seller.

But putting all of that aside, there is some entertainment value in the film. Just don’t expect much of it. Check out my full review below.

The Great Wall starring Matt Damon

Any normal film about The Great Wall of China would be otherwise been seen as a documentary or a dramatization of how the wall was built. But add a monster element to it, and it has all the makings of a blockbuster tentpole movie, especially if said film has cast a very marketable name headlining it, like Matt Damon. Universal and Legendary have released the second trailer for The Great Wall.

Check it out here below.

Given the amount of news surrounding Justice League that is slowly being released, we are bound to get many juicy bits about the film which just started production a few short weeks ago. Earlier today the official plot synopsis was revealed, telling us that Batman (Ben Affleck) and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) are gathering the Metahumans, that were found on Lex Luthor’s (Jesse Eisenberg) computer, to fight a threat that has just been confirmed to be Steppenwolf – no casting announcement for that has been made as of yet.

First, Game of ThronesKristofer Hivju will be playing an Ancient Atlantean King, and Willem Dafoe will be playing Vulko. All this focus on Atlantean characters has to do with the Mother Boxes that appeared in the deleted scene revealed earlier this year.
