The Legend is Born: Ip Man – Trailer

The Legend is Born – Ip Man is a 2010 Hong Kong semi-biographical martial arts film based on the events in the early life of Wing Chun master Yip Man (also spelled as Ip Man). The film’s story is not related to Wilson Yip’s Ip Man starring Donnie Yen; however both Sammo Hung and Fan Siu-wong are featured in the film, but introduced as alternate characters. The film was directed by Herman Yau and stars Dennis To in the title role as Yip Man. One of the highlights of the film is a special appearance by Ip Chun, son of Yip Man, who plays Leung Bik in the film. The film focuses on Yip Man’s early life and the story of how he learned the martial arts style of Wing Chun. In contrast, Ip Man and Ip Man 2 focus on the events in his life that took place during the Second Sino-Japanese War and after he moved to Hong Kong.
