What The Hell is Going On in This New Trailer For THE GREAT WALL?
Universal Pictures debuted the full trailer for the upcoming action epic The Great Wall at New York Comic Con, and they've now released it online.
Guys...what the hell is going on here? Not just plot-wise, but in the actual filmmaking techniques, too. Is it just me, or do all of Matt Damon's lines sound like he's been replaced by a voiceover actor? And I don't know if it's just sketchy editing or what, but to me, it looks like 50% of the dialogue doesn't match the actors' mouths as they're speaking.
While there are definitely some dazzling colors on display here and some visually interesting shots (though World War Z should get a paycheck for how blatantly that last shot rips them off), from a story perspective, this one's not really doing much for me. What do you all think?
The Great Wall hits theaters on February 17, 2017.
Starring global superstar Matt Damon and directed by one of the most breathtaking visual stylists of our time, Zhang Yimou (Hero, House of Flying Daggers), Legendary’s The Great Wall tells the story of an elite force making a valiant stand for humanity on the world’s most iconic structure. The first English-language production for Yimou is the largest film ever shot entirely in China. The Great Wall also stars Jing Tian, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe and Andy Lau.
