Matt Damon Defends the Great Wall of China From CGI Monsters

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 and apparently a green screen. Imagine if a few of the monsters were created with practical effects in partnership with KNB FX or Stan Winston? It could have felt way cooler. I get the fact the have to use CGI for the hordes of monsters but I sure do miss practical effects from big budget studios like Legendary. Check out the trailer below.
