The legendary Ip Man hits the silver screen once again, this time told through the eyes of director Kar Wai Wong in the second trailer for The Grandmaster. Unlike Wilson Yip's 2010 classic Ip Man, this story is set after the Sino-Japan war, with Ip Man (The Grandmaster), teaching his craft during the golden age of martial arts. Ziyi Zhang co-stars in this action-drama, set for release on August 23.
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Kar Wai Wong, The Grandmaster is an epic action feature inspired by the life and times of the legendary kung fu master, Ip Man. The story spans the tumultuous Republican era that followed the fall of China's last dynasty, a time of chaos, division and war that was also the golden age of Chinese martial arts. Filmed in a range of stunning locations that include the snow-swept landscapes of Northeast China and the subtropical South, The Grandmaster features virtuoso performances by some of the greatest stars of contemporary Asian cinema, including The Grandmaster and Ziyi Zhang.
