Ip Man 3 teaser is here!

Now THIS is what I call one heck of a trailer! The good folks at Well Go USA are set to handle the American distribution of the highly anticipated “Ip Man 3”, with the film making its stateside theatrical debut on January 22, 2016, following is release in China and Hong Kong in December. In the meantime, they’ve put together the first full trailer for the film following the previously released teaser, and all anyone should possibly say is “WOW!”

The legendary Yuen Woo-ping steps into the chair of action director for Donnie Yen’s third outing in his most iconic role, which will also feature an appearance by former World Heavyweight Boxing champion Mike Tyson.

We’re also treated to a brief but noticeable glimpse at Danny Chan in the role of Ip Man’s most famous student, the immortal Bruce Lee. Chan’s recently confirmed appearance in the film cuts against early reports that Bruce would be created through CGI for the film. Chan, who also just happens to be a Jeet Kune Do practitioner, has long been noted for his striking resemblance to Bruce, and even previously portrayed him in the television series “The Legend of Bruce Lee”. A better candidate for the job you’re not likely to find (at least, outside of Afghanistan, that is).

Audiences in the U.K. will get the chance to see the film during its premiere in London next month, with none other than Donnie Yen himself (currently in London filming “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”) in attendance. London seems to be the perfect spot to premiere Donnie Yen movies, these days – as we attest to, seeing Donnie at the London premiere of “Kung Fu Killer” last October!

KFK’s official reviews on the first two “Ip Man” movies can be read here and here. Stay tuned for more info on the upcoming release of “Ip Man 3”, and be sure to follow Well Go USA on Facebook and Twitter.

From the earliest days of childhood, Brad Curran was utterly fascinated by martial arts, his passion only growing stronger after spending time living in the melting pot of Asian cultures that is Hawaii. His early exposure developed into a lifelong passion and fascination with all forms of martial arts and tremendous passion for action and martial arts films. He would go on to take a number of different martial arts forms, including Shaolin Ch'uan fa, Taekwondo, Shotokan Karate and remains a devoted student, avid and eager to continue his martial arts studies. Brad is also an aspiring writer and deeply desires to share his love for martial arts and martial arts movies with the world!

  1. I can’t wait to see this movie (in 3D)! I waited so loooong for this! I’m so glad that Donnie agreed to do this final sequel. And i still hope that he still continue to do more martial arts films despite his announcing that this “might be” his last martial arts movie. (I think he said the same thing before) ^ ^ Also excited to see the portrayal of Danny Chan as Bruce Lee. I’m soooo glad that there will be no CGI Bruce!! Although now that the films technology are highly advance, I wonder how “real” a CGI Bruce would appear in this highly anticipated movie? And… Oh well… Mike Tyson (a boxer and a property developer) i guess will be playing a fictional character? Was it after or during the time of Japanese invasion in China? Will soon find out! Great article, by the way!! 🙂

    • Thanks for your comments Mhel! Would it be any good in 3D? The film was made in 2D so I think it’s a gimmick! I do think the film though should be good, it looks great! I enjoyed the first two so I’m looking forward to this one as well!

      • Hello Elliot! Yes, I read that it will be released in 3D… So this is not happening? *sad* 😀 I personally prefer watching any movies in 3D (whenever the option is available in cinema), it feels more intense especially the fight scenes – flying tables, chairs, or even a person! ^ ^ I also loved the first 2 sequels. Got lost a little bit on The Legend Is Born (with Dennis To)… Ip Man has to be Donnie!! 🙂

        • Hey Mhel, I think it’s still happening in 3D, my question was whether it was truly effective since it wasn’t filmed with two cameras for the 3D effect. They make a stereo conversion after filming. Some of these conversions have been terrible! Some might look good though so this one might be okay! You want to see a flying table come towards your head? 😀

        • I like to watch something that makes me bounce off my seat, gives me more realistic feel. 😀 But not sure of the stereo conversion, how effective it would become for any films (especially live action films). It requires a lot of precise accuracy for the depth cue application to give that “3D effect”.. But I really do hope so, Ip Man 3 will be OK! It’s December, will soon find out! ^ ^
