The Great Wall Interview: Zhang Yimou on Its Meaning and Misconceptions

22 February 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

When the man who gave us such critically acclaimed, award-winning epics as Red Sorghum, Hero, and Raise the Red Lantern makes a self-described “popcorn flick,” it’s a pretty big deal. Director Zhang Yimou had a brief chat with me about some of the misconceptions and challenges of his internationally-produced “monster flick,” The Great Wall, and what it was like to make a film that his teenage sons could finally enjoy.   The Lady Miz Diva:  After A Woman, A Gun And A Noodle Shop, I believe this is the second time you are working from a story written by Americans.  As those characters in that film were transformed into Chinese, was there any discussion with The Great Wall to have William and Tovar be Asian,...

'The Great Wall' Review: Matt Damon Battles Monsters, Blockbuster-Audience Boredom

17 February 2017 7:24 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Matt Damon has earned his action bona fides with The Martian and the Bourne films; veteran Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou (Raise the Red Lantern, House of Flying Daggers), doing his first film in English, is a world-class master. (It's hard to forget his 2008 staging of the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing Olympics.) So it's exciting just to think of the two teaming up. Reality, sad to say, is a bitch. This co-production between the U.S. and China, the two leading spots on the map for mining gold at box office, »

Why The Lego Batman Will Likely Beat Matt Damon and Ice Cube at the Box Office

16 February 2017 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With Presidents’ Day, “The Great Wall” (Universal), “Fist Fight” (Universal), and “A Cure For Wellness” (20th Century Fox) each have the luxury of a four-day weekend. However, even with this advantage they could fall short of last weekend’s successful debuts.

Last week saw a trifecta of new releases gross over $30 million. And it’s likely that we’ll see the winner, “The Lego Batman Movie” (Warner Bros.), in the top spot once more. A forty percent drop would place it at $32 million over three days, more than enough to dominate a group of titles that are each likely to struggle to pass $20 million.

Among the new releases, two very different entries could be in a close race to reach the upper teens.

The edge goes to “Fist Fight,” a »

The Weekend Warrior 2/17/17: Fist Fight, The Great Wall, A Cure for Wellness

15 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.  

This Past Weekend:

The Lego Batman Movie won the weekend as expected, but not with nearly as much money as I had predicted, not besting the opening of The Lego Movie as expected, but instead ending up with a reasonable and not so bad $53 million.  Fifty Shades Darker proved that the audience for movies based on the popular books was still great enough for it to win Friday with $21 million (to Lego Batman’s $15 million) and end up second for the weekend with a strong $46.6 million. That was still almost $40 million less than the opening of the previous movie Fifty Shades of Grey, but the sequel also didn’t have the benefits of Valentine’s Day and a four-day holiday.

Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of The Great Wall In St. Louis

6 February 2017 8:53 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Between courage and fear. Between monsters and men. A wall stands that must never fall.

Academy Award® winner Matt Damon (The Martian, The Bourne franchise) leads humanity’s greatest fight for survival in The Great Wall, from Legendary and Universal Pictures. When a mercenary warrior (Damon) is imprisoned within The Great Wall, he discovers the mystery behind one of the greatest wonders of our world.

As wave after wave of marauding beasts, intent on devouring the world, besiege the massive structure, his quest for fortune turns into a journey toward heroism as he joins a huge army of elite warriors to confront this unimaginable and seemingly unstoppable force.

Directed by one of the most breathtaking visual stylists of our time, Zhang Yimou (Raise the Red Lantern, Hero, House of Flying Daggers), the action-fantasy marks his first English-language production and the largest film ever shot entirely in China.

Zhang-Damon Collaboration: Globalization the Unfortunate Big Loser

27 January 2017 9:09 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

The Great Wall movie with Matt Damon: awkward-accented British mercenary fights the Taotie in costly Chinese-American collaboration. 'The Great Wall' movie: Zhang Yimou-Matt Damon collaboration evidence that – for better or for worse – countries can work together In this divisive age, when countries are turning inward with a nationalist, xenophobic fervor, it's comforting to know that the United States and China, their relationship mercurial and wary, can work together and, in the spirit of cooperation and unity, make a terrible movie. A co-production between Legendary East (the Chinese arm of Burbank, California-based, Legendary Entertainment) and China Film Group, The Great Wall is reportedly the most expensive film ever shot in China, a nation with aspirations to make films that rival Hollywood in their scope and success. Hollywood is willing to help if it ultimately leads to the release of more of its films in the tightly controlled Chinese market, »
