Zhang Yimou’s THE GREAT WALL Opens in the U.S. on February 17
Epic Fantasy-Adventure Stars Matt Damon, Breakout Actress Jing Tian and a Superstar Chinese Cast


Legendary and Universal Pictures release THE GREAT WALL in U.S. theatres, tomorrow, Feb. 17. The epic fantasy-adventure from acclaimed Chinese director Zhang Yimou (“Raise the Red Lantern,” “Hero,” “House of Flying Daggers”) is his first English-language production, and the largest film ever shot entirely in China.

THE GREAT WALL is the story of an elite force making a last stand for humanity on the world’s most iconic structure. The movie takes place in a fantasy vision of ancient China, in which The Wall was created to defend against ravenous predatory creatures called Tao Tei.  In the film, Academy Award® winner Matt Damon stars as William Garin, a battle-scarred mercenary and master archer taken captive by a secret army of elite warriors known as The Nameless Order.  In a vast military outpost called the Fortress City, they fight to protect humanity from supernatural forces upon one of the greatest defensive structures ever built: The Great Wall.  On his journey, Garin is joined by Pedro Pascal (Netflix’s “Narcos,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones”) as his sword-wielding sidekick, Pero Tovar, a tough, wise-cracking Spaniard who has become a brother-in-arms to William; and two-time Oscar®-nominee Willem Dafoe (“Platoon,” “Shadow of the Vampire,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel”) as Ballard, a shadowy prisoner inside the fortress who plans his escape from his longtime captors while hoping to pilfer their greatest weapon during his getaway.

To create THE GREAT WALL, Yimou assembled a formidable cast and filmmaking team that represents the best of East and West in a unique global production that delivers unmissable spectacle on the grandest scale. 

The superstar Chinese cast includes renowned Hong Kong actor Andy Lau (“House of Flying Daggers,” “Running Out of Time,” “Internal Affairs”), who reunites with director Yimou as Strategist Wang, the fortress’ resident scientist and historian; Lin Gengxin (“Bubu Jingxin,” “The Taking of Tiger Mountain”) as Commander Chen,  the leader of the Eagle Corps; Taiwanese-Canadian actor Eddie Peng Yu-Yen (“Scent of Love,” “Rise of the Legend”) as Commander Wu, who leads the Tiger Corps; Xuan Huang (“Breaking the Waves,” “The Golden Era”) as Commander Deng, leader of the fortress’ cavalry; Zheng Kai (China’s TV hit “Running Mann”) as Shen, Strategist Wang’s imperial liaison; and Chen Xuedong (the “Tiny Times 1.0” trilogy) as one of the fortress’ Imperial Guards.

THE GREAT WALL also welcomes to its cast a pair of China’s pop-music sensations—Lu Han (the band EXO) as Peng Yong, a soldier struggling under the command of the Bear Corps’ Gen. Shao, who must overcome his fear and prove himself heroic during the creature onslaught; and Junkai Wang (frontman for China’s TFBOYS), who makes his professional acting debut as The Emperor, the 17-year-old royal ruler tested before his time. 

THE GREAT WALL will show on 3D and IMAX screens, as well as 2D theaters.
