Trailer Watch: Wong Kar-wai’s The Grandmasters

We got a teaser trailer back in December, but this new trailer for Wong Kar-wai’s take on an Ip Man biopic actually shows some footage.

Wong’s Ip Man is one of his regulars, Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, who has some action flicks in the past (Hero, Red Cliff) but isn’t exactly Donnie Yen, but that doesn’t seem to be too important, as Wong has so stylized the action that it doesn’t really flow like a proper fight scene. For me, that’s not really a good thing, but I’m still curious to see what kind of film Wong makes of the subject.
