3/27 Blu-ray, 4K Ultra Release Date For "THE GREAT WALL" Starring Matt Damon:

On June 12th Universal/Legendary Pictures will release Yimou Zhang's fantasy thriller "THE GREAT WALL" on to 4K Ultra HD, 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand..

Plot: A soldier who is part of a group of mercenaries traveling to China in order to bring back gunpowder to Europe. When the group is attacked by mystical beasts, the man finds himself in a war between a secret warrior clan and the beasts..

The film takes place about 1,000 years ago. At its core, it is a period piece and an action film. The fantasy element does play a major role because of the monsters. But, what makes our film unique is that these are ancient Chinese monsters. Even though it’s a fantasy movie, we filmed it in a very realistic way. We want it to feel like the events actually happened. Other than the monster, all aspects of this film are backed by either scientific or historical research...
