"ip Man 3" Has New Release Date In China And Posters To Prove It

Donnie Yen showing off his Wing Chun in "Ip Man 3"

Over at MoviesWithButter.com, I’ve written two articles regarding “Ip Man 3,” the film that’s holding its own in Asian territories against “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

If you’re not familiar with Asian cinema,”Ip Man” one of the most popular franchises in that area of the world. It stars Donnie Yen, arguably the top Asian action star in the last decade.

The biopic, very loosely based on the life of the teacher who taught Bruce Lee, is getting a limited release in the U.S. on January 22nd. It was first released in Asia on December 24th -- a date that was also originally slated for China, but was pulled for reasons unexplained.

The first article with the new release date did well, probably because I was one of the first to publish it. The second article about the posters did ok.

    Yesterday, I live-blogged The Golden Globes -- for various reasons. First, it gets traffic. Second, I might as well do something useful while watching TV. Lastly, I was looking forward to seeing Ricky Gervais host the event again. Nothing against Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, but he’s my favorite.

    Here's my latest review on MoviesWithButter.com of "The Transporter Refueled," the reboot of the Jason Statham franchise without the star (and it's not bad): I wasn’t expecting much from “The Transporter Refueled.” What’s a “Transporter” movie without Jason Statham? Not much, I thought. More

  • I Reviewed Donnie Yen's Latest "Wu Xia" on MoviesWithButter
    I just got Donnie Yen's latest in the mail about a week ago, so I reviewed it on MWB: "Peter Chan’s “Wu Xia” is Donnie Yen’s best film since “Ip Man.” It might not be the fight-fest that fans expect from Yen, but it’s a visually striking film that engrosses with its unique take on the martial arts genre and entertains with Yen’s wuxia-style choreography." I'm a Donnie Yen fan, so I may be a bit biased. More
