We've partnered with ELEVEN ARTS to bring the feature length follow-up film to the popular Kung Fu action film "IP MAN" series, THE LEGEND IS BORN - IP MAN, to the big screen in theaters across the U.S. starting this weekend in Seattle, WA.
The semi-biographical film is based on the early life events of Wing Chun master Yip Man, famous for mentoring Bruce Lee, and is helmed by director Herman Yau and stars Dennis To in the title role.
THE LEGEND IS BORN – IP MAN also features a fight between martial arts legends Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao and an appearance by 86-year-old Ip Chun, Ip Man's real life son, as one of the wing chun master's mentors. Ip Chun also acted as an advisor to the film.
