Wong Kar-wai is a man who likes to tease his fans. After spending four years making 2046 he seems to be trying to top himself with The Grandmaster. 

The film, based on the life of Yip Man, founder of Wing Chun and Bruce Lee’s mentor has been filming now for three years and has taken on almost mythic proportions. Starring Larkalong favourite Tony Leung along with Zhang Ziyi, Chen Chang and Korean actress Song Hye-Ko, it seemed that there was light at the end of the tunnel earlier this Spring when we heard it would be released before the end of 2012. Piles of gossip, a set of character posters and one disappointing trailer later (it’s looking like a mix between Donnie Yen’s Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen and countless other Hong Kong action films that have come out over the last decade) We have a confirmed release date of January 8th.

I will never give up on you Mr. Wong and even if it’s rubbish I still love you.
