The finale of China's blockbuster franchise "Ip Man" will show dramatized scenes of the legendary martial artist, Ip Man fighting in an American military camp.

"Ip Man 4" tells the story of Wing Chun grandmaster Ip Man's life experience in the United States when he was in the country in 1964. 

According to the production company Bona Film Group, the movie is about Ip's famous protégé Bruce Lee, who opens a martial arts school in San Francisco but upsets the local martial arts community and is later challenged by some racists in America. Ip then teaches Lee how to defend China's national integrity with kung fu when the discrimination and bullying against Chinese people escalate.

A new trailer and a new poster were unveiled on Thursday, showing Ip goes alone to a U.S. Marine Corps military camp and engages in some kung fu fighting scenes there. The movie slogan on the new poster reads "Talks, OK! Fight, Anytime!" Ip Man is played by famous Chinese kung fu megastar Donnie Yen who also starred in the three earlier Ip Man films.

"Many audiences grew up with the 'Ip Man' series, and I grew up with it too. Ip Man represents the spirit and dignity of the Chinese nation," Donnie Yen said.

The film is directed by Wilson Yip and produced by Raymond Wong and joining them again, will be Yuen Woo-ping, one of the most successful and influential Hong Kong martial arts choreographers. Other notable actors starring in the film, aside from Yen, include English actor Scott Adkins and Hong Kong actor Danny Chan, who is known for his uncanny resemblance to Bruce Lee and has portrayed Lee in several films and TV series.
