The Great Wall is directed by Yimou Zhang (House of Flying Daggers, The Flowers of War) and stars Matt Damon (The Martian, Jason Bourne), Tian Jing (Special ID, Police Story: Lockdown) and Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man, John Wick).

The Great Wall is actually a pretty important film - it is a big step forward for the film industry as this was produced by a Chinese production company and is being distributed by a major US company - Universal. It may be a big deal in terms of its release, but is it a big deal in general?
