From writer and director Wong Kar Wai comes the story of the legendary the Kung Fu master Ip Man, the warrior hero who mentored and trained Bruce Lee. Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company will be releasing “The Grandmaster” on multiple formats on March 4th.
With “The Grandmaster”, Wong Kar Wai has made a Kung Fu film like no other. Years of research before production and a virtual battalion of martial arts trainers on set ensured that THE GRANDMASTER portrays both the Chinese martial arts and the world of the martial artists with unprecedented authenticity, with fight scenes choreographed by renowned action choreographer Yuen Wo Ping (THE MATRIX, KILL BILL, CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON.)
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. Filmed in a range of stunning locations that include the snow-swept landscapes of Northeast China and the subtropical South, THE GRANDMASTER features incredible performances by some of the greatest stars of contemporary Asian cinema, including Tony Leung and Ziyi Zhang.
