IP Man 3 - Cover -

Donnie Yen is back and boldly stepping to a real mean looking Mike Tyson – reprising his role as the legendary Wing Chun Grandmaster for ‘IP MAN 3.’

What do you get when you pit the powerhouse martial arts prowess of the extraordinary action star Donnie Yen (“IP MAN”/”IRON MONKEY”) against the brutal meat mitts of boxing legend “Iron” Mike Tyson? Well from the looks of the trailer, one amazingly over the top slugfest of epic proportions.

Directed by Wilson Yip and penned by Edmond Wong, ‘IP MAN 3’ is the third in the popular Ip Man film series. The film is based, albeit loosely, on the life of the Wing Chun grandmaster Yip Man, and stars Donnie Yen reprising who is reprising the title role for the third time. This is where things get interesting. As evident from the trailer, the martial art mayhem movie is also set to star Mike Tyson.

What we don’t see in the trailer, is that the film is also set to feature one of Yip Man’s particularly popular pupil… the legendary Bruce Lee. Here lies the controversy. Pegasus Motion Pictures, the studio behind ‘IP MAN 3’ has painstakingly recreated the iconic Bruce Lee through CGI. The problem is that according to Bruce Lee Enterprises (BLE), which is the sole owner of all worldwide rights relating to Lee, that Pegasus was not licensed to do so. So the debate remains, will Bruce Lee’s CGI avatar be present in the upcoming installment to the already EPIC ‘IP MAN’ Trilogy? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

‘IP MAN 3’ is slated to premiere in Hong Kong on December 24, 2015 and the “1.22.16” at the end of the trailer leads one to believe the US premiere will follow shortly after…

Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path.From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film.Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.

    I do really like the Ip Man series, and I’m really curious as to how well Tyson does in a fight scene with Yen. That’s a tough act to keep up with.

      I’m very curious to see Tyson’s skills. At his prime he was so fast and fluid you didn’t even know what you saw. He never got that back and I’m wondering if a good choreographer can unleash his potential on screen.
