Things were kinda of looking promising for Wong Kar Wai’s upcoming The Grandmasters the end of last month when news broke on its long overdue release date of December 18th. Then the beginning of this month we got a few new stills and a new trailer. One was to believe that the December 18th planned release date might actually come true with the steady updates. Now here were are a month later and we get yet another update with new posters, BUT ….. The Grandmasters has been pushed back again to next year with a January 8th release. One can only wonder if The the Grandmaster hold some kind of record for a film being in production the longest and with delays. Lets all hope it was worth waiting 6-7 years for.
Ip Man is a rich man extremely talented in martial arts, but he chooses to keep a low profile. One day he is trapped in this battleground so he has to use every means to get out of there. The masters are amazed by his abilities. Master Kung and his daughter Kung Yi are amongst, and the latter is attracted to this newcomer. A high warlord originally from the North comes to Foshan. He has brought many masters with him to hide his true agenda. At the same battleground where Ip Man is trapped, he is suddenly assassinated by his own guard Yi Xian Tian.
