European mercenaries searching for black powder become embroiled in the defense of the Great Wall of China against a horde of monstrous creatures.
The filmmakers were denied permission to film on the actual Great Wall, so the locations were added digitally.
You think they see you as some kind of hero? A man of virtue? Maybe you can fool them, but I know what you are. You know what you are. A thief, a liar, and a killer. You can never undo things you have done. And you will never be anything.
The "drone" Tao Tei's eye placement does not conduce to its position in the horde. As a protector and hunter for the queen, it would need the predator's forward facing eyes, rather than side eye placement, to allow for binocular or stereoscopic vision. This would allow the monster to see and judge depth especially during the great-height wall battles against the Nameless Order. Predators need this depth perception to track and pursue prey. Its current design suggests that IT could be the prey.
The Universal logo appears quicker than usual, and after appearing it zooms into China, going all the way to a section of the Great Wall and through a crack in the section. During the zoom the Legendary Pictures logo appears (in reverse).
