After five years in the making, is it finally complete? That’s the question on everyone’s mind when it comes to Wong Kar-wai‘s The Grandmasters – and today we finally may have an answer. For the last few years we’ve been getting teasers for the film starring Tony Leung and Zhang Ziyi, telling the story of Ip Man, who is best known as the trainer of legendary kung-fu star Bruce Lee. After getting picked up by film saviour Megan Ellison for a domestic release, we’ve now got an international trailer.
The full-length piece boasts some impressive visuals, including an action scene in front of a train station, which has yet to be seen. With no subtitles, it’s difficult to glean much from the story, but Kar-wai’s style is very much apparent. Best of all, a title card at the end indicates a December international release is still planned, so hopefully we’ll get more concrete distribution news soon. Check it out below, as well as seven stills (via Yahoo Taiwan) for the film also starring Chang Chen, Cung Le, Bruce Leung Siu Lung and Wang Qingxiang.
