The film IP MAN 2 has been a Mainland and Hong Kong box office hit, breaking 200 million already in the Mainland. Two nights ago a celebration was held in Beijing. Director Wilson Yip Wai Shun, producer Raymond Wong Pak Ming, actors Donnie Yen Chi Tan, Sammo Hung Kam Bo, Louis Fan Siu Wong and Big Brother Big's wife Joyce Godenzi (Go Lai Hung) attended. The director wished that the film will exceed 300 million in the Mainland box office, then he will immediately make IP MAN 3.
Chi Tan himself has been busy with his new film and deliberately took time off to attend the celebration. Reporters asked Chi Tan in the films have beaten the Japanese and foreigners, in the three film what opponent will be left? Screen writer Edmond Wong Chi Wun joked that they will fight aliens. Chi Tan also joked, "Then it might as well be Ip Man vs. AVATAR!" However, IP MAN 2's online illegal download has been very rampant. Over 10 million have watched it online and led to major box office damage. The film company has already planned to sue the internet companies over copyright issues, who knows the 300 million box office that Yip Wai Shun mentioned will include these copyright compensation.
In addition, earlier Chi Tan and Big Brother were rumored to be at odds. Big Brother even claimed that Chi Tan after rising to fame became incoherent. Yet at the venue they were chatting and laughing. Chi Tan even took the initiative and grabbed Big Brother by the shoulder to dispel dispute rumors with action. The film in Hong Kong has made 30 million, but Chi Tan has been tangled in gossip. Chi Tan thanked everyone for their support of IP MAN 2, but all the recent speculative news that targeted Chi Tan was unfair to him. She said that Chi Tan has studied martial art since childhood, over his years in film he has actively promoted Chinese martial arts and respected every school. He is 100% respectful to Wing Chun. Chi Tan earlier even personally went to Foshan for life experience. If he did not respect Wing Chun he would not make IP MAN. His spokesperson Ms. Cheung said, "Now IP MAN 2 is so successful, everyone knows about Wing Chun. Instead of Chi Tan deserving some credit, people are saying that he has been disrespecting Wing Chun. It is absolutely absurd. As for the numerous baseless rumors, Chi Tan doesn't plan to respond. However very obviously someone has bad intentions and want to speculate with Chi Tan to promote."
