The Donnie Yen Chi Tan starred, Wilson Yip Wai Shun directed, Raymond Wong Pak Ming produced kung fu film IP MAN 4 THE FINALE has been confirmed for a December 20th release this Christmas. In this installment Yen Chi Tan chose to follow his heart in his performance. "By the fourth film, I already have a great understanding of this character. The director also wants me to follow my heart a little, so he didn't give me the script until two days before the production started. With the feeling I got on the set, I was just as pleased with the resulting performance as the director."
The first trailer was released yesterday. Ip Man who studied n an English language school in his youth used simple English to answer the foreign dean's questions and bring out this story's overseas background. Ip Man and Wu Yue sparred on a glass lazy susan; Ip Man was also seen sparred with English action actor Scott Adkins at a military base. New addition Vanness Wu (Ng Kin Ho) played a Chinese officer.
In this installment Ip Man for his son's future went to the U.S. to look for a school. A stranger in a strange place, life was not as beautiful as imagined. Ip Man also witnessed discrimination against Chinese. Director Yip Wai Shun said, "Each time Ip Man fought, it was because he could see injustice. This was Ip Man's original intent that has never changed. This installment wanted to bring out, no matter where you are, as long as you struggle and improve happiness can be anywhere."
