'The Grandmasters' New Trailer Gets Music Treatment From RZA

The promo video for Zhang Ziyi's action movie features the hip-hop singer's song 'Rivers of Blood' off the 'Man with the Iron Fists' soundtrack album.

"The Grandmasters" presents a unique collaboration between kung fu and hip-hop music in its new trailer which has made its way out online via Yahoo! Movies. RZA's "Rivers of Blood", which blares as a backsound, gives more dramatic effect to every action scene featured in the video.

The film, which became the opener of the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year, is about the legendary kung fu master Ip Man. From the trailer, it is easy to tell from whom the late Bruce Lee had his deadly fighting skills as his teacher, played by Tony Leung, is seen easily beating out thugs only with his bare hands.

Acquired by The Weinstein Company, "The Grandmasters" chronicles the life of the Wing Chun grandmaster from the 1930s in Foshan, his flight to Hong Kong after the Second Sino-Japanese War, and the events leading to his death. Co-written by Xu Haofeng and Jingzhi Zou, it also stars "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" actress Zhang Ziyi and Korean star Song Hye Kyo.

Last week, Martin Scorsese decided to lend his support to the action-heavy film. When it opens in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto on August 23 and nationwide on August 30, the presentation of the pic will be named "Martin Scorsese Presents The Grandmaster".

"Wong Kar Wai has turned martial arts into a modern dance," Scorsese gushed over the film's director, as quoted by Deadline. "Every movement hit with precision, every emotion drenched with underlying honor. 'The Grandmaster', arranged with both elegance and fury, left me mesmerized."
