Following the announcement last week that the film will have a panel at New York Comic Con this Saturday, October 8, the full trailer for Zhang Yimou’s The Great Wall was classified today by Consumer Protection BC.
Given the timing of this classification, we are expecting the trailer to make its debut during the film’s NYCC panel, which takes places this Saturday at 12:30pm ET (5:30pm BST). Yimou will be at hand to present the trailer, along with Matt Damon, Jing Tian, Pedro Pascal and Junkai Wang. The panel will also be live-streamed on Twitch.
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 is released in the U.S. February 27, 2017. See the teaser trailer from earlier this summer below:
