Matt Damon, Willem Dafoe, Pedro Pascal and Tian Jing star in Zhang Yimou’s fantasy adventure. In the 11th century, a group of Europeans set out for China to discover how to make gunpowder. But when they get there, their claims to be on a trading mission are disbelieved and they are arrested and imprisoned by the Nameless Order within the Great Wall – just as it is about to be beset by giant alien monsters. As wave after wave of attacks and surprise tactics batter the Wall, the Europeans and Chinese warriors must battle hoards of the alien creatures in a series of escalating conflicts and a confrontation with the alien queen.
