The Grandmaster

Just this past spring, the first US trailer for Wong Kar Wai's martial arts drama The Grandmaster arrived with The Weinstein Company releasing the film late this summer. Now a second trailer has surface showcasing some more impressive fighting sequences with Tony Leung as Ip Man, the legendary martial arts grand master who trained Bruce Lee, and Zhang Ziyi, really showing off her skills. Yuen Woo-Ping, who choreographed the fights in The Matrix, Kill Bill and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, has clearly outdone himself. This film looks like it will be a visual treat, and have some mind-blowing action. Watch!

Here's the newest US trailer for Wong Kar Wai's The Grandmaster, originally from Apple:

The story of martial arts grand master Ip Man (Tony Leung Chiu Wai), 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.

    This came out a long time ago in China. Glad to see it's hitting Stateside.
  • Looks giant amaze balls on toast.
  • dvt
    movie itself is a snorefest, just don't go in expecting as much action as Donnie Yen's Ip Man lol xddd
  • grimjob
    Looks decent, but also seems over-stylized. This should be more grounded, since its following actual events. Donnie Yen's Ip Man was damned enjoyable!
  • Jim Dawkins
    Whats the diff between this an the movie Ip man?
      It is the same main character, but this one has a romance spin to it. Both feature the Chinese Martial Art of Wing Chun.

    Nice use of Spiritualized.

    Ziyi Zhang better shows some facial expressions in the actual movie. Otherwise she's Asian Kristin Steward.
    • Dominic
      ZZ's a MUCH better actress , so HARDLY on that KStew comparison . Sexier too IMHO . But without the KStew celebrity baggage ....
