It may have taken close to five years to make it to the screen, but Wong Kar Wai's The Grandmasters
has finally finished shooting and appears to be committed to its 18 December release date. The film stars Tony Leung Chiu Wai as legendary wing chun practitioner Ip Man, with fight choreography 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.
Yes, we've already seen this story told a number of times in recent years, most successfully by Donnie Yen and Wilson Yip, but when Wong Kar Wai brings something to the big screen, you know that it's going to be worth waiting for. Five years might have been pushing it, even by his standards, but if the final film turns out to be anything like as good as this first proper trailer suggests, then The Grandmasters will most definitely have been worth it. Check it out.
