Wong Kar-Wai: 2046 Montage

A selection of clips from Wong Kar-Wai’s “2046”, set to Lali Puna’s cover of “Together in Electric Dreams.” Something to watch until he releases his upcoming film, “The Grandmasters,” about the late kungfu master Ip Man, known for his wing chun style, a form of Chinese martial arts. Tony Leung will play Ip. Wong’s film, according to Wong Kar Wei News, will not focus just on Ip, but on a group of kungfu masters of his time. Wong has put together a stellar cast, including Zhang Ziyi, South Korean star Song Hye-kyo, comedian Zhao Benshan and his protgege Xiao Shenyang. Though kungfu fans have been looking forward to the release of the film for some time, Wong has prolonged shooting, as he often does. Leung even took a break to take the lead in another movie, “The Great Magician,” which will be released in December, 2011. Sil-Metropole Organization, the film’s production company, says filming has been completed and that Wong is working on post-production. But a release date has still not been given.
