Film Trailers: THE GRANDMASTER
I am a huge fan of Hong Kong director Wong Kar-wai. His films have a feel for the loner, the lovesick and encompasses energetic fuel of big city life, mainly in Hong Kong. A lot of that has to do with his usual cinematographer Christopher Doyle, and although he is not working with him on this film, the look of this film is astounding. It is a Wong Kar-wai film and it has been awhile since his failed, first English language debut My Blueberry Nights. It stars his long time acting collaborator Tony Leung as well. Here is to hoping this film, about the famed martial arts trainer for Bruce Lee, Ip Man and its forever in post production status with a lot slow motion fighting scenes in the rain, is has good as the trailer makes it. If not, at least it will be visually amazing.
