Ip Man 2: Legend of The Grandmaster movie trailer

Movie trailer for Ip Man: Legend of The Grandmaster (2010), sequel to the blockbuster Ip Man in 2008. Donnie Yen is starring as legendary martial artist Ip Man, famously known as the master of late Hollywood star Bruce Lee…

The second movie will tell the story of Ip’s struggle and challenge in the 50s after settling to Hong Kong. Set the story aside, the main attraction of the film is on the action choreography which seems pretty promising from the trailer.

The co-stars are Sammo Hung, Huang Xiaoming, Lynn Hung, Simon Yam, Kent Cheng, Louis Fan, Darren Shahlavi and Calvin Cheng.
