The poster says the Great Wall took 1,700 years to build. While this is technically accurate, since it was actually constructed as a series of several walls built separately over that time by various ruling dynasties. Each new wall section built by any single ruler would take approximately ten to twenty years to construct.
Andy Lau and Matt Damon both played the same role of an undercover gang member working in the police force: Lau played a triad member and senior inspector Lau working for the Hong Kong Police Force in Infernal Affairs (2002), and Damon played his American counterpart, staff sergeant Collin Sullivan of the Massachusetts State Police in its American remake The Departed (2006).
When William (Matt Damon) was asked if he had been left behind before, he replied, "Yes. Twice before. And it didn't end well for them." This is a homage to his previous films Interstellar (2014) The Martian (2015), in both of which he was left behind on other planets and the expedition went wrong.
