25 most anticipated movies of Summer 2013
19. 'The Grandmaster'
In Theaters: Friday, August 23, 2013
Director: Wong Kar Wai
Cast: Zang Ziyi, Tony Leung, Song Hye-kyo, Chung Le, Chang Chen
Why we're excited: HitFix's Guy Lodge had mixed feelings about the long awaited martial arts drama after it debuted at the Berlin Film Festival, but he certainly thought it was one of master filmmaker Wong Kar Wai's more commercial endeavors. One thing we know for sure is it's going to be stylish, gorgeous and feature some imaginative Kung Fu set pieces. Throw in the onscreen "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" reunions of Zang Ziyi and Chen Chang plus Ziyi and "Hero" co-star Tony Leung and we're there.
