A brand-new entry in the landmark film franchise based on Bruce Lee’s legendary teacher, Ip Man: The Awakening is a fresh story in the martial arts saga and a tightly choreographed, fight-filled spectacle not to be missed!
While visiting Hong Kong, a young Master Ip intervenes in a kidnapping attempt, unintentionally igniting a turf war with a ruthless human trafficking ring. In retaliation, the gang kidnaps one of Ip Man’s close friends, leaving him with no choice but to challenge the group’s notoriously brutal boxing champion head-on.
Headlined by Miu Tse, the young star of Jet Li classics, Legend of the Red Dragon and The Enforcer, Ip Man: The Awakening also stars Chen Guan Ying, Zhao Yu Xuan and Hao Yan Fei.
Ip Man: The Awakening premieres exclusively on the Icon Film Channel from 20th February, before releasing in selected UK cinemas on 24th March.
