The Grandmaster gets a 3D Version in China
Wong Kar Wai's kung fu philosophy lesson The Grandmaster gets a new version for Chinese cinemas. It will be in 3D as a special gimmick for China. It was initially planned to be released that way but after several delays and budget issues, the producers pressured the filmmaker into getting the film ready for a theatrical release:
But that's just one of the reasons. Wong Kar Wai's perfectionism explains why there are so many versions of the film. Its first theatrical version in China differs from the Chinese Blu-ray version, which is 15 minutes shorter and is also the export version on which many foreign releases are based on. Apart from that, there's also the alternate US version which differs the most from everything else.
According to Variety, the new 3D version is probably largely identical to the US version but features completely new scenes, as well. It has its theatrical start in China mid October 2014 and it remains to be seen whether it will eventually have a Blu-ray 3D release there or anywhere else in the world.
