I am dying to see Wong Kar Wai’s version of Ip Man, but it might be a while before “The Grandmasters” finally shows up on U.S. shores — or an import DVD becomes available … until some U.S. distributor grabs the movie and yanks said import DVDs off the market. Apparently Hong Kong and Chinese audiences can’t get enough of Ip Man, either, because ready or not, here’s another one from director Herman Yau, who previously directed 2010’s “The Legend Is Born: Ip Man”, so this is a sequel to that.
“Ip Man: The Final Fight” stars the venerable Hong Kong actor Anthony Wong as the titular, older grandmaster, and you can take a gander at the trailer below.
Ip Man, The Final Battle is set in postwar Hong Kong, with the grandmaster trying to live quietly while teaching his art of Wing Chun. But after accepting challenges from rival kung fu masters, Ip Man is slowly facing a bigger problem: the Triads.
The film stars Anthony Wong, and hits Hong Kong theaters in April of this year.
“The Grandmasters”, by the way, opened earlier this year.
