Wong Kar-wai's long-delayed Ip Man biopic "The Grandmasters" has now hit another roadbump: the mainland China release has been pushed back an additional three weeks due to even more additional shooting last month. This puts the film in Chinese theaters January 8 (as opposed to December 18), with its festival circuit possibilities and Us release still unclear. In the meantime, four new character posters have been released. Check them (and the Chinese trailer) out below. Shooting began on "The Grandmasters" in 2009. The film stars Tony Leung, Zhang Ziyi and Chang Chen. Wong's "Chungking Express" and "In the Mood For Love" are both on the Sight & Sound Greatest Films of All Time list, so we'll remain patient. »
