And just like that, out of nowhere, comes another new look at Wong Kar-Wai's "The Grandmasters." Twitch has unveiled a new, Russian teaser trailer for the highly anticipated, mysterious, continually delayed film.

And just like that, out of nowhere, comes another new look at Wong Kar-Wai's "The Grandmasters." Twitch has unveiled a new, Russian teaser trailer for the highly anticipated, mysterious, continually delayed film. It's pretty much what we saw in the teaser last summer, albeit with a few different angles and some very red drops of blood.

What we do know thus far is that Tony Leung stars as the Wing Chun legend Yip Man, with Song Hye-kyo as Yip Man’s wife and Zhang Ziyi, Zhao Benshan, Julian Cheun Chi-lam, Chang Chen and MMA fighter Cung Le rounding things out. The lengendary Yuen Woo-ping is chreographing the action, and as usual, it looks top shelf. Megan Ellison's Annapurna shingle has the U.S. rights for the film, but thus far no distribution is in place, most likely because no one has seen the damn thing yet.

Will it show up at Cannes this year? Your guess is as good as ours, but fingers crossed. Watch below.
