For those of you like myself who enjoy watching martial arts films, then you're going to enjoy this new full trailer for The Grandmasters. The film was directed by Wang Kar Wai, and it looks like it's going to be an awesome kickass martial arts flick! It seems like it has a solid story, the fight sequences look fantastic and the cinematography is great!
The film is based on martial arts legend Ip Man, but this is a different take on the legend from Wilson Yip’s 2008 film Ip Man. The movie stars Tony Leung, Zhang Ziyi, Chang Chen, Zhao Benshan and Song Hye Gyo.
Here's the synopsis for the film:
With martial arts getting more popular in the Thirties, more people seek to learn them via the professionals at Foshan in Southern China. Some of the experienced masters like to challenge their counterparts and undergoing battles. To have their whole concentration, it is their practice to lock up the venues and no one is allowed to leave during battles. No food and no rest before reaching any results.
Ip Man is a young rich man extremely talented in martial arts, but he chooses to keep a low profile. Yet this doesn't keep him out of these troubles ahead. One day he is trapped in this battleground so he has to use every means in order to get out of there. The masters are amazed by his abilities. Master Kung and his daughter Kung Yi are amongst, and the latter is attracted to this newcomer.
A high warlord is assassinated by his own guard Yi Xian Tian. All masters in Foshan vow to take Tian down no matter what....
There's no word yet on when the movie will be released, but I'm looking forward to seeing it whenever it becomes available! Enjoy the trailer!
