This awards season, certain corners of the internet have been complaining that movies are just too darn long. "Zero Dark Thirty," "Django Unchained," "Les Miserables," "Lincoln," "Amour" and "This Is 40" all broke the 2 hour mark. And some fidgety reporters who seemingly can't sit still for more than a couple hours will be disappointed that one of 2013's most eagerly awaited movies will test their bathroom break-timing.

You've already seen it on our list of the 100 Most Anticipated Films Of 2013, and now here's a closer look at Wong Kar-wai's "The Grandmaster," his long-awaited new feature, and his first in six years since 2007's English-language venture, "My Blueberry Nights."

Finally Finished? Wong Kar-Wai's 'The Grandmaster' To Open The Berlin Film Festival

The legend goes that when Wong Kar-Wai brought "2046" to the Cannes Film Festival, the print was still dripping as he worked until the very last minute to finish it. And to say that his latest, the martial arts biopic "The Grandmaster," has had a few road bumps and delays would be an understatement. The film has been in production on and off for the past couple of years, and had things gone according to plan, it would be in theaters in China now, opening this week. But of course, WKW had to continue tinkering, and the release date was pushed to January 8, 2013. But it seems the end is nigh, god willing, and "The Grandmaster" has set an international bow.

Still without a proper U.S. release date (Annapurna Pictures has the rights, but hasn't paired with a distributor yet), we're taking what we can get from Wong Kar-Wai's "The Grandmasters," even if it means watching a behind-the-scenes documentary on the film without any subtitles. But thankfully, someone has come to the rescue and at least given us a better understanding of the full length trailer.
