Matt Damon Fights Ancient Chinese Monsters or Something in 'Great Wall' Trailer

July 28, 2016


After being saved himself in Saving Private Ryan, Interstellar, and The Martian, Matt Damon finally gets to be the savior. The white savior, but still.

In The Great Wall, Damon is joined by Game of Thrones' Pedro Pascal on the title structure, where they team with some actual Chinese people to defend it from invaders. Also, instead of being Mongols, the attackers are weird monsters or something. At last, China's history lines up with the version of it one dreams of after falling asleep watching Hero, The Bourne Supremacy, and Tremors.

The Great Wall is also the priciest Chinese film ever made and directed by Yimou Zhang (House of Flying Daggers), though, so despite everything else, at least it looks better than the ridiculous revisionist histories the U.S. has been making. (I'm looking at you, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.) Check it out:
