Master Z Trailer Continues IP Man's Legacy Starring Dave Bautista & Michelle Yeo

Master Z: The Legacy of Ip Man is finally coming to North America after premiering in Hong Kong over the holiday season. Donnie Yen’s main character Ji-dan Wing Chun is not in the film, but he is a producer and gave full control to legendary director Yuen Woo-Ping. The latest trailer has been released and features Max Zhang (love clinic), Dave Bautista (guardians of the galaxy), Liu Yan (Young Marshal), Michelle Yeo (boobies rich asian), and Tony Jaa (ong bak Series).

Iconic Action Director Woo-ping Yuen draws on a stellar cast to create a hard-hitting martial arts blast worthy of its place in the acclaimed Ip Man universe. After losing to Master Ip, Cheung Tin Chi (Max Zhang) attempts to make a living with his young son in Hong Kong, serving tables at a bar that caters to expats. But it’s not long before the mix of strangers, money, and triad leaders draw him back into the fight. The trailer teases some expert martial arts moves and some pretty crazy moves from Dave Bautista.


Max Zhang admits that fighting David Bautista was a challenge that sometimes even frightened him because the guardians of the galaxy The actor is so much bigger than him. Zhang said, “His fists are so huge, even if his punches didn’t land for real, you would still feel the pain.” This should be a pretty good warning to anyone even considering pretending to fight Bautista in the future. Zhang is no slouch with his martial arts, so Bautista likely felt the same fear while fighting on the set of Master Z: The Legacy of Ip Man.

Although Master Z: The Legacy of Ip Man contains the name Ip Man, it really is its own movie. Max Zhang as Cheung Tin Chi is a different character with a new story that picks up from the third Ip Man project. However, he gave up fighting at the start of the film. Everything changes when he learns about Owen Davidson’s (Dave Bautista) drug trade. The sense of righteousness buried deep within him revives the Wing Chun spirit and it is from there.

Master Z: The Legacy of Ip Man hits theaters on April 12. Although Donnie Yen wasn’t there to help with the film, his presence is felt everywhere. He had great confidence in Max Zhang and Yuen Woo-Ping’s abilities to complete the project without any problems. According to overseas critics, the duo managed to pull off a great spin-off for the franchise, which should be enough to draw North American martial arts fans into theaters to see the film.
