The Grandmaster Trailer: The Year’s Artiest Fighting

Before Bruce Lee was Bruce Lee, someone needed to teach him. That man was Ip Man, and The Grandmaster, the newest from auteur Wong Kar-Wai*, tells his story. This trailer is all pretty kung fu and no dialogue, which isn't a bad way to spend two minutes of a Friday afternoon. The film opens in limited release on August 23. Fun fact: Everyone who watches it immediately becomes super great at fighting cool.

* This post previously stated that Wong Kar-Wai is a martial arts-movie auteur. The director of Chungking Express, In the Mood for Love and 2046  is not a martial-arts movie auteur. Vulture regrets the error.
