Donnie Yen Fans rejoice! Universe will release Wilson Yip’s Ip Man 2 on DVD and Blu-ray Disc with English subtitles on June 25th. There will also be a Blu-ray Disc collection with both parts of the biopic about the life of Bruce Lee’s teacher on the same day.

Some things that popped up during last week and would have gotten their own entries if I weren’t such a real-life loving slack…
(Almost) Ten Minutes from Wilson Yip’s Ip Man 2
Watch Donnie Yen kick some ass (including Sammo Hung’s)…or skip it, if you don’t want to spoil the (probably) best scenes of the film.
Promo Footage/Trailer for Hobo with a Shotgun
Another one of those fake trailer thingies that gets turned into “full” movies and even feature a known name with Rutger Hauer.
UK Blu-ray Disc releases of Goemon and Casshern announced
Good news for those who cursed their lack of German tongue after Splendid Entertainment announced their German Blu-ray Disc release of Kazuaki Kiriya’s Casshern and Goemon. Momentum UK will bring both films in an English friendly version to Blu-ray Disc. Goemon will be released in July while Casshern doesn’t have a date yet.
Sorry for the crappy pq, but this new teaser trailer for Wilson Yip’s Ip Man 2 starring Donnie Yen and Sammo Hung was taken from some Chinese video hoster. I guess beggars can’t be choosers, right? Hopefully we’ll get a proper HK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release a few months after the film opens on April 29, 2010.
YesAsia has now listed Universe Laser’s release of Ip Man. The biopic stars Donnie Yen as Bruce Lee’s wing chun mentor and will be released on February 13, 2009. So far
all both of Universal’s Blu-ray Disc releases (Sparrow and Invisible Target) have been region free, so let’s hope that the same applies to Ip Man.
Several promo clips and trailers can be viewed here.
[01.02.09] Update: DDDHouse’s customer support contacted me today to tell me that this release will be region locked!
Der erste richtige (d.h. ohne Behind the scenes Material) und überaus beeindruckende Teaser Trailer zum Biopic über das Leben des Wing Chun Großmeisters (Y)Ip Man ist auf der taiwanesischen Website zum Film (geile Menüanimation btw) aufgetaucht. Der Lehrmeister von Bruce Lee wird von Sunnyboy Donnie Yen gespielt, die Regie übernimmt Wilson Yip.
