Matt Damon's 'The Great Wall' Pushed Back to 2017
Legendary's The Great Wall, being released by Universal Pictures, has shifted its release date, jumping over the new years line and clearing space on the November 23rd Thanksgiving slot.
Instead, the film, which stars Matt Damon and is directed by Zhang Yimou, has been pushed into the Presidents' Day weekend, on February 17, 2017. The film tells the story of an elite force making a valiant stand for humanity on the world's most iconic structure.
The film is Yimou's first English-language feature, and is the largest film ever shot entirely in China. It will be shot in 3D and also stars Pedro Pascal, Tian Jing, Andy Lau and Willem Dafoe.
