Check Out Mondo's Poster for 'The Grandmaster' by Vania Zouravliov
In Martial Arts there is no right or wrong, only the last man standing. Even though this film has been out on Blu-ray in China for over two years, The Weinstein Company is finishing their last marketing push for the US theatrical release of Kar Wai Wong's The Grandmaster next week. To top off all the footage and trailers and featurettes we've seen, Mondo has created a stunning new poster for the film that was designed by Russian illustrator Vania Zouravliov. There's an English version and a Chinese variant in gold. Tony Leung and Ziyi Zhang star in the film about martial-arts master Ip Man, the man who trained Bruce Lee.
The Grandmaster tells the story of martial arts grand master Ip Man (Tony Leung Chiu Wai), the man who trained Bruce Lee. The story focuses on two kung fu masters, IP Man, and Gong Er, and as their worlds collide on the night of the Japanese invasion in 1936. The plot encompasses themes of war, family, revenge, desire, love, and memory. The cast also includes Ziyi Zhang, Chang Chen, Xiao Shengyang and Song Hye Kyo as well as hundreds of Asia's top martial artists. Chinese filmmaker Wong Kar Wai directs the film which was already released in China and hits US theaters, from The Weinstein Company on August 23rd.
