European mercenaries searching for black powder become embroiled in the defense of the Great Wall of China against a horde of monstrous creatures.
Amigo, only you would carry a stupid magnet through the desert
William: I can use it to make a compass
Only one magnetic stone, which can pacify the Taotie, appeared in the movie. The stone was brought in by William the European mercenary. In reality, Chinese civilization first made compasses from magnetic stones in Han dynasty (< AD100). By the time point of the movie (somewhen between AD960 and AD1127), the compass had been widely used in navigation. It shouldn't be hard to find more magnetic stones inside China.
The Universal logo is sped up, with the fanfare replaced with some of the film's score. The letters "U-N-I-V-E-R-S-A-L" and the byline disappear, but the globe doesn't, showing the Legendary Pictures logo above it as we zoom in to where the Great Wall of China would be, similar to the versions of the Universal logo used for Waterworld (1995) and 47 Ronin (2013), as text appears to set the stage. Once the text ends, the wall is slightly cracked as we zoom in on this crack, starting the movie.
