However Wong Kar-Wai's "The Grandmaster" turns out, it seems the movie has made theater owners very happy. In case you missed it, over the weekend reports surfaced that distributors were encouraging the director to make a sequel to the movie, which is apparently doing quite well in China and Hong Kong, and moreover, that he's considering it. But for now, he's got some other things on his mind, namely the Berlin International Film Festival which starts on Thursday, where he'll not only be presiding over the jury, but he'll have this film kick off the fest.

However Wong Kar-Wai's "The Grandmaster" turns out, it seems the movie has made theater owners very happy. In case you missed it, over the weekend reports surfaced that distributors were encouraging the director to make a sequel to the movie, which is apparently doing quite well in China and Hong Kong, and moreover, that he's considering it. But for now, he's got some other things on his mind, namely the Berlin International Film Festival which starts on Thursday, where he'll not only be presiding over the jury, but he'll have this film kick off the fest.

And to help set the mood, a brand new trailer has arrived offering up another taste of "The Grandmaster." Granted, there isn't a whole lot of new footage, but the tone and tenor are different from what we've seen before -- apparently this was cut by the French distributor for the movie. But it's once again gorgeous and expressive stuff, and it's our first look at the movie since it was announced that the picture was being cut by fifteen minutes for its international release.

Screening for Euro press this week, and festival attendees as well, there should be a more comprehensive verdict on "The Grandmaster" by the end of the week. Still no word on a U.S. distributor but hopefully that gets sorted out soon. Watch below.
