WATCH: Tony Leung Slices and Dices in Wong Kar-wai's 'The Grandmaster' (TRAILER)

The martial arts epic “The Grandmaster,” Hong Kong director Wong Kar-wai’s first feature since the disastrous “My Blueberry Nights” in 2007, finally has a proper US trailer but still no official release date.

Though early reviews have been mixed, The Weinstein Company snagged all North American rights to the Ip Man biopic when it opened Berlin in February (read TOH’s take here). The film stars seasoned Wong regular Tony Leung as the eponymous master, and boasts grand-scale special effects uncharacteristic of the Hong Kong auteur whose films include moody character studies such as “In the Mood for Love” and “Chungking Express.”

That trailer is awful. It gives no sense of what the movie is about. Which may not matter anyway, since Weinstein usually slices and dices his acquisitions. Does Wong Kar-Wai have a "no-cut" clause in his contract?
