The Weinstein Company has released a fantastic new trailer for Wong Kar Wai’s biographical drama The Grandmaster. The film tells the story of martial arts grandmaster Ip Man (Tony Leung Chiu Wai), the man who served as a mentor to the legendary Bruce Lee. Check out the trailer below.
The film looks likes it’s going to be a visual treat with amazing choreographed fight sequences. Yuen Woo-Ping, who choreographed the fight sequences in films such as The Matrix, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and Kill Bill, choreographed the sequences in this film as well, so you know this is going to pack a punch.
The Grandmaster has already been released in China and will be released in the U.S. on August 23rd. The film also stars Ziyi Zhang (Memoirs of a Geisha and House of Flying Daggers). What do you think of the trailer?
