New Images from Wong Kar-wai’s ‘The Grandmaster’

Posted by , on January 2, 2013 at 1:24 pm 

In about only six days, Wong Kar-wai‘s long, long-awaited kung-fu picture The Grandmaster will be unveiled in China. With the first release mere days away and a Berlinale premiere set to take place next month, those of us in the United States — which would amount to most readers in the first place — are waiting with bated breath to not only hear how things shook out, but also when we’ll get to see it for ourselves.

The latter matters so much more than the former, anyway; even if Wong delivers a film that’s more My Blueberry Nights (a film I still really like) than Chungking Express, it’s still from one of the world’s greatest filmmakers. That ought to account for excitement stirred by a few simple stills of The Grandmaster‘s two leads, Tony Leung and Song Hye-kyo, with some posing in period costume (and an occasional fight stance) being the order of the day. Although framing and lighting are (unsurprisingly) impeccable, it’s only a small glimmer of whatever sort of trip Wong will take us on in the not-close-enough future.

A fansite (via ThePlaylist) have the images, and those can be glanced at below:

The Grandmaster is expected to hit the United States later this year, thanks to Annapurna Pictures.

Do these images do anything to satiate your thirst for Wong’s next film?
