Still in New York, Ziyi was promoting The Grandmaster Today at Good Morning America. She talked about her hard training she did for the movie. Some pictures in the gallery!



Yesterday Wong Kar Wai, Zhang Ziyi and Tony Leung were in New York for an early screening of the film followed by a Q&A organised by the “Producers Guild of America“. Some pictures of the event are into our gallery (credit: weibo) and more interesting, 2 videos (a third will be added after) of the Q&A have been posted on Youku (thanks to TLForest). Ziyi expressed her feelings on the set and the difficulty of the shooting. Enjoy !

 



News edited: Added two videos of better quality. You can still watch videos from youku:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3.


Along with the officiel website, a new american trailer was released.


The first My Lucky Star Teaser was released some days ago! It’s a confirmation that the film will be released during the summer, but the exact release date is still a mystery… Stay Tuned!


The cast of The Grandmaster were interviewed today by Sina Entertainment. We have some pictures of Ziyi during the interview. Apparently, the film was still in post-production in Thailand yesterday, which is not really surprising with a Wong Kar Wai movie. It was delivered to the Chinese censors this morning and the first press screening was scheduled for this afternoon.

A video of the entire interview with Ziyi also surfaced online. Unfortunately, there’s no translation or subtitles…

Stay tuned, the promotion for The Grandmaster has just begun. There’s much more coming soon!


The Grandmaster was supposed to be released on december 18th. The release has been postponed to january 8th.

The week a fantastic news has been revealed ! The Grandmaster will open 63rd Berlinale.

“It is a special honour for us to open the 2013 Berlinale with the presentation of the newest film by this year’s jury president, WONG Kar Wai. With The Grandmaster, Kar Wai has added a new and exciting facet to his body of works, and created an artful, visually powerful genre film,” says festival director Dieter Kosslick.

Nearly three years of film production and almost a decade of preparation went into the making of The Grandmaster for its director WONG Kar Wai, who began exploring the idea for the film in 1996.

“I am truly very honoured by Dieter and his invitation for my new film The Grandmaster to participate in the 63rd Berlinale and to open the festival. This is a dream project for me that I had been developing for many years. I am very happy to be able to present it in Berlin. I was already greatly looking forward to my returning to Berlin to serve as the President of the International Jury, so seeing The Grandmaster presented there will make it all the more special for me,” says WONG Kar Wai.

With his signature style-defining mood, atmosphere and reality, director WONG Kar Wai delves into the eternal question in martial arts of whether the victor is more than merely the “last man standing”, and brings the genre to new heights.

The Grandmaster will be presented as the opening film in the official selection, but screening out of competition.
