The Kung Fu Spectacular Hits Blu-ray and DVD April 19



 

PLANOTEXAS.  (March 2, 2011) – International superstar Donnie Yen (Ip ManHeroSeven Swords) reteams with Director Wilson Yip (Flash Point,IP Man) to reprise his iconic role as IP Man against the formidable competition of martial arts legend Sammo Hung (Kill Zone14 Blades) in IP Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster, when the global box office hit debuts on Blu-ray and DVD April 19 from Well Go USA.  The film takes up where its predecessor left off, with Ip Man escaping the Japanese occupation of his hometown and arriving in Hong Kong, where he opens a martial arts academy to teach his unique Wing Chun style.  But Ip must first prove himself to the corrupt cabal of Hong Kong martial arts masters— which he does, in one of the most amazing fight sequences ever committed to film, showcasing a dazzling variety of martial arts styles.

 

Escaping CGI, MTV-style editing, and blasting techno music for a return to skilled performers, ace choreography, and top-notch production values, the Ip Man films have ushered in a new era of Hong Kong filmmaking and cemented its status as a trailblazer by receiving 10 nominations at the 30th Hong Kong Film Awards, including Best Film, Best Director, and Best Action Choreography. The Blu-ray and DVD feature both the original uncut and un-dubbed subtitled version and a brand new English-language dub.  Bonus features include the in-depth, behind-the-scenes featurettes “The Making of Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster” and “Behind the Sets,” as well as deleted scenes and a shooting diary.  IP Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster will be available in a Two-Disc Collector’s Edition Blu-ray for $32.98 SRP and Two-Disc Collector’s Edition DVD for $29.98 SRP.  The film will also be available as a Single Disc Blu-ray for $26.98 SRP and on Single Disc DVD for $24.98 SRP.

 

Synopsis:

Master Ip (Donnie Yen), a new arrival in British-occupied Hong Kong, wants to open a martial arts academy to teach his unique Wing Chun style. A corrupt group of martial arts masters, led by Master Hung (Sammo Hung) refuses to allow him to teach in peace until he proves himself as a kung fu master. Ip’s trouble continues when he is forced to enter a brutal “King of the Ring” boxing match against Twister (Darren Shahlavi), a Western-style boxer who insults the Chinese locals, in a East versus West knock-down, drag-out fight to the finish.
