And it looks like this week’s ‘wut?!’ news story is the release of this trailer for The Great Wall.

The movie sees Matt Damon, Pedro Pascal and Willem DaFoe starring as part of a team who are defending the newly built Great Wall of China against a horde of supernatural dinosaur looking monsters.

Or something.

It’s the most expensive Chinese movie ever made apparently and it looks utterly mental. So yes, we’re totally in!

Check out the trailer below.

The Great Wall is a American-Chinese 3D science fantasy adventure-monster action film directed by Zhang Yimou. The film features an ensemble cast led by Matt Damon and Andy Lau, while the other cast members include Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe, Jing Tian, Luhan, and Zhang Hanyu.

The film is scheduled to be released in China in December 2016 and in the United States on February 17, 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
