Released circa New York Comic-Con 2016 is the second trailer for THE GREAT WALL - this time featuring more of the “Asian” cast (maybe the “White-Saviour” outcry world? :p). and as well provides a much clearer “explanation” of the story to be told in this Zhang Yimou directed feature film.
I heart his “HERO” and the usage of “colors” in the art direction of the Chinese martial arts film, although the use of colors here in “The Great Wall” looks unsubtly like “Power Rangers” warrior armor, I am intrigued to see how it actually plays out, especially with the shot of the yellow-paint arrow tip … :)
AND we fleetingly get to see what is/are the menace hoard that the folks are fighting against .. and here I thought was a sole “dragon” hahaha
“The Great Wall” premieres in February, 2017, in USA, and December 29th 2016 in Singapore! (IMDb)
