Looks neat, I'll see it. But yeah it doesn't really make sense that Matt Damon is cast as a warrior in ancient China.

No freak out about Oberyn Martell being in it?
I guess he is also a top billed actor in the Narcos series.

Ah, good call. I didn't notice that's who it was. He's a bit more "race-ambiguous" so you can cast him as anything.

Entitled people will get butthurt over anything. Matt Damon is a great actor. Looking forward to just seeing him in this. I'm sure there will be some tie-in as to how he's American or something? Like The Last Samurai. It's not like Cruise was supposed to be Japanese. He was an american soldier and then trained and became a samurai. If he had been japanese the story would have had to change...

"The Great Wall" just tweet (and deleted) this CGI shot of a beast that looks bizarrely unfinished.

Edit: Apparently this is from an unfinished version that was screened in May

I was gonna say, the previews have shown better looking monsters than that.

Also, I've changed my opinion on this since seeing the initial trailer. I don't think this will do well at all. I would still consider watching it but I don't think it will be good.

My prediction... 34% on RT from critics.

Currently at 35%. I bet it goes down though.
