We've seen a lot of trailers and posters for The Grandmaster over these many months, but the movie is finally set to be released on August 23rd in the U.S., and today we bring you the final trailer and poster for the film. The trailer features beautifully awesome shots of some of the Kung-Fu action sequences in the film, and it's set to a track by RZA. This movie looks like an amazing martial arts movie, and I'm excited about seeing it later this week!
The film is based on martial arts legend Ip Man, and it was directed by Wang Kar Wai. The fight choreography in the film was done by Yuen Woo-ping, and it 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....
