Trailer: The Grandmasters

Interesting and exciting. I expect that WKW is going to play with the tropes and conventions of the martial arts genre (and in a way that’s different from Ashes of Time, which was more specifically a take on wuxia), but I’m not yet sure how. (My guess is that most of the action in the film was already showcased in the trailer, but I could be wrong.) I look forward to seeing what he’s up to, especially since Donnie Yen just did a couple of excellent Yip Man biopics within the last several years, and Wong will probably inject the film with his trademark world-weary romanticism.
