The five great sigils of The Great Wall

The Great Wall


The Great Wall 長城 held a press conference on Nov. 15, 2016 with Director Zhang Yimou, Jing Tian (The Glory of Tang Dynasty), Luhan (Fighter of the Destiny), Lin Gengxin (God of War Zhao Yun) and Huang Xuan (Tribes and Empires) in attendance and it's kind of hilarious how everyone tries to stand on tippy toes to match the height of Lin Gengxin who is apparently super tall.

According to Zhang Yimou, the Song Dynasty's advanced technologies inspired many of the weapons and military tactics used in the movie that strives to depict a realistic battle against a supernatural species. 

The five army troops have their own sigils with their own colors, a concept that Zhang Yi Mou added thinking that it would add to the richness of the story, kinda nerdy but the good kind and it seriously reminds me of Game of Thrones.
