I has been far too long since 2007’s My Blueberry Nights which saw art-house favourite director Wong Kar Wai make his first English language feature films, to mixed results (albeit I feel it is severely underrated.) In the ensuing time, if you discount perfume commercials and short films, wkw has been toiling away with his biopic on Ipman, The Grandmasters, long enough to see at least 4 Yip man films come along (most of these starring Donnie Yen.) Expected open Cannes, last may, we are finally getting the first significant look at the film starring the Tony Leung and Zhang Ziyi. And if you are a fan of slow motion raindrops and brooding facial expressions, then this teaser is for you.
According to Wikipedia, The Grandmasters is set for a wide release in Hong Kong and China on December 18, 2012.
