The “Ip Man 2” official site has updated with a brand-spanking new, English-subtitled trailer for the film, which now means you can understand why Ip Man (Donnie Yen) is punching that guy really, really fast in the face. See, there’s a perfectly good reason for that! Anyways, check out the full two and a half minutes trailer below. And yes, apparently besides jealous rival Chinese martial arts masters, Ip Man also has to contend with those oppressive British in their not entirely manly shorts. Thanks to reader Blake for the heads up.
A sequel to the successful “Ip Man” starring Donnie Yen, “Ip Man 2″ follows Ip Man (Yen) as he immigrates to Hong Kong in 1949 after the struggles against the Japanese in the first film. In Hong Kong, Ip Man attempts to propagate his discipline of Wing Chun martial arts to the world, but is hampered by jealous martial arts rivals and the oppressive British. Co-starring Sammo Hung, who is also the film’s action director.
Starring Donnie Yen, Sammo Hung Kam-Bo, Darren Shahlavi, Siu-Wong Fan, Lynn Hung, Ka Tung Lam, Xiaoming Huang, Kent Cheng, Yu-Hang To , Amber Chia, Stefan Morawietz, and directed by Wilson Yip.
Hong Kongers get it first April 29, 2010.
