In the world of martial arts there are masters, but we want The Grandmaster! Hell yeah, Wong Kar Wai‘s upcoming martial arts drama definitely looks promising, and that’s exactly why we want you to take another look at… well, at the man who trained Bruce Lee, who else?! Head inside to find the latest (action-packed) TV spots and over 40 new images from the movie…
As usual, you will have to click on all these images to enlarge, and we will once again remind you that The Grandmaster, aka the story of martial-arts master Ip Man, is set to hit theaters on August 23rd, 2013.
The movie has an awesome cast on board which includes Zhang Ziyi, Tony Leung, Hye-kyo Song, Chen Chang, Yuen Woo-ping, Shun Lau and Siu-Lung Leung.
They are here to teach us how to fight, ’cause as you already had a chance to see from the official trailer, this epic action feature is inspired by the life and times of the legendary kung fu master.
In other words, the film chronicles the life of the Wing Chun grandmaster Ip Man from the 1930s in Foshan, his flight to Hong Kong after the Second Sino-Japanese War, and the events leading to his death.
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.
The Grandmaster was released on January 8th, 2013 in China and grossed over 312 million yuan (US$50 million) at the mainland Chinese box office (read: it’s Wong’s highest grossing film to date).
Looks good, or what?
