The director is certainly in the club.
Recall, Donald Trump just won the 58th Presidential Election and was sworn in for the 58th Presidential Inauguration, with 58-year-old Steve Ray leading the ceremonies, on the date with '58' numerology, January 20, 2017.
1/20/2017 = 1+20+20+17 = 58
*Humpty Dumpty = 58
Notice this film, 'The Great Wall', comes out on February 17, the 48th day of the year. How fitting! Another Donald Trump tribute in Hollywood. Remind me in four years to look ahead to what movies are coming out just after Inauguration to see who the next President will be in advance.
It's also a fitting date numerology for a movie release in tribute of Mr. Wall himself, Donald Trump.
2/17/2017 = 2+17+20+17 = 56 (President) (2017, 56-years since construction of Berlin Wall)
*Berlin Wall = 45; Donald Trump elected 45th President on anniversary of fall of the Berlin Wall
