We have added the new international trailer and quad poster for The Grandmaster, starring Tony Leung, Ziyi Zhang and Chang Chen. It’s the UK release of auteur Wong Kar Wai’s kung fu epic on Dec 5th, which charts the life of Ip Man – the master who unified and popularized kung fu, and taught the equally legendary Bruce Lee.
The Grandmaster, the highly-anticipated film by acclaimed director Wong Kar Wai, will open through Metrodome on 5 December. Six years in the planning and three years in the making, 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.
Nominated for two Academy Awards, for Cinematography and Costume Design, The Grandmaster features virtuoso performances from those at the film’s heart: Wong regular, Tony Leung, Ziyi Zhang (CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON, HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS, HERO) and Chang Chen (HAPPY TOGETHER, 2046). It was filmed in a range of stunning locations that include the snow-swept landscapes of north east China and the subtropical south.
In UK cinemas: 5th December 2014 .
