Universal’s ‘The Great Wall’ is a fictitious story about why The Great Wall of China was actually made. The story is every 60 years, a secret Chinese army called The Nameless Order aligns the Great Wall of China so they can protect the world and guard against ancient monsters. The monsters are known in Chinese folklore as Taties, the beasts of greed. In this story, two travellers (Damon and Pascal) have come to steal gunpowder, who then join in on the fight.
This film is huge, and they had to have a huge premiere for it. There’s also no better place to do it then in Los Angeles at the famed TCL Chinese Theatre. In the above interview, Jing Tian tells us how great it is to have the premiere there, Willem Dafoe and Pedro Pascal talk about why the main reason they did the film was to finally work with the director, while Director Zhang Yimou is thankful that he was the first to bridge the gap between Chinese and American filmmakers, and Matt Damon tells us why this is the perfect “popcorn” film.
The Great Wall is in theaters now.
