ip man 2 u.s. teaser trailer

I think I've shared other versions of this trailer before, but just wanted to post the U.S. teaser trailer for Ip Man 2, starring Donnie Yen, and continuing the story of real-life kung fu grandmaster Ip Man. The martial arts movie sequel was a bit hit in Asia, and will open in U.S. theaters next month. Take a look:

And here's the official synopsis:

International megastar Donnie Yen reprises his iconic role as the real-life kung fu grandmaster Ip Man in this martial arts spectacular. After escaping the Japanese occupation of his hometown of Foshan, China, Ip Man and his family have arrived in Hong Kong, which is living under the iron fist of British colonial rule. Ip wants to support his family by opening up a martial arts academy to teach his unique Wing Chun style. But a corrupt cabal of Hong Kong martial arts masters, led by Hung Chun-nam (the legendary Sammo Hung), refuses to allow Ip to teach until he proves himself – and prove himself he does, in an intense series of fights against the masters showcasing a dazzling variety of martial arts styles, culminating in a highly anticipated brawl between Ip and Hung atop a rickety table.

But even after gaining the respect of the masters, Ip's troubles are far from over. Hong Kong under British rule is a world of corruption, and when a Western-style boxer named Taylor "Twister" Milos comes to town to entertain the British upper-class, and insults both Chinese martial arts and the native citizens in a horrifically violent way, Ip must step up and fight for the honor of both his kung fu and the Chinese people. Forced by honor to enter a brutal "King of the Ring" boxing match against Twister, it's East versus West in an amazing, knock-down drag-out fight to the finish, the likes of which have never been seen on-screen before.
Yes. I love stories of humble martial artists fighting back against colonialist aggressors. Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster, opens in limited release in the U.S. and Canada on January 28. For more information about the film, go to the Ip Man 2 movie website here.
