Chinese director Wong Kar-Wai has made some breathtaking films in his fourteen years as a director, including In The Mood For Love, 2046, Chungking Express and My Blueberry Nights. Now, after five years in the making, his latest film, The Grandmasters, has finally released its first ever trailer, and it looks stunning.
The Grandmasters is a biopic of the legendary IP Man (Tony Leung); a master of Wing Chun and the man who taught, among others, Bruce Lee. The film is now finally finished after set-backs, delays, extended shooting and release date shuffles, and comes to Chinese cinemas on 18th December. The gorgeous first trailer is tailored for the Chinese, and sadly is not in English, but you can watch and admire the brilliance on screen until an English subbed trailer becomes available.
In the film, fight choreography comes from the legendary Yuen Wo Ping, and a supporting cast that boasts Zhang Zi Yi, Chang Chen, Cung Le, Bruce Leung Siu Lung and Wang Qingxiang.
