If there’s one thing I’ve become especially proud of in the last 10 years or more is how less and less obscure Chinese cinema has become. Acclaimed screenwriter Xu Haofeng is a terrific example of this and with respect to his latest teaser for The Final Master, retitled from its native release last year and repackaged for its upcoming North American release from United Entertainment Partners.
The Final Master is a martial arts film set in a transformational time period in China before World War II. Based on director Xu Haofeng’s best selling novel, The Final Master follows a Wing Chun practitioner’s adventure to open a martial arts school in the northern center to fulfill his master’s death wish. He has to secretly challenge eight martial arts schools with his apprentice, but he does not realize he’s been turned into a chess piece within the power game in the martial arts community at the end of an era.
Watch the teaser and expect more content to come between now and its May release!
