Here's the New Chinese Trailer for 'The Grandmasters'

By DAVID HUMPHREYS
The first promotional clip for Wong Kar-wai's The Grandmasters came out in July of 2011. Back then, the world was a very different place—Rick Santorum had a decent shot at becoming the Republican candidate, Osama Bin Laden had only been dead for a few days, and people were still taking about the iPhone 4s as if it were something new. One year later, a second promotional clip has been released. Like in the previous clip, we get to see Tony Leung single-handedly take on a large crowd in the rain in slow motion. But this time around we also get to see a few other things. Like Chen Chang fighting a large group of people in the rain in slow motion and Tony Leung practicing kung fu in the snow. There's also a bit of dialogue which will be of little interest to non-Chinese speakers since the video isn't subtitled.
