《一代宗師》破北美華語電影票房紀錄
馬田史高西斯極力推薦
2013-09-10 01:22:00 来源: 香港成报

In a week of time, the Grandmaster box office has reached to 2,450,000 since it's national release on 8-30-2013. It is one of the highest box office winners for any Chinese Films in recent history.

http://www.singpao.com/yl/yl/201309/t20130910_458439.html

電影《一代宗師》上月尾於美國上映,短短一周的票房成績已取得245萬美元。連美國大導演馬田史高西斯亦大讚該電影,更以個人名義極力推薦。

  由王家衛執導,梁朝偉和章子怡主演的《一代宗師》早前在各地叫好叫座。該片上月30日在美國全國開畫,首周便取得245萬美元的票房成績,打破華語電影近3年在北美的票房紀錄。此外,大多數美國傳媒和影評人也對片中武打場面給予高度肯定,稱是將武俠與浪漫主義結合得最成功的電影,猶如給華語電影「爭了裏子」,也「爭了面子」。

  中國功夫傳遞愛意

  而曾拍攝多部經典影片的美國大導演馬田史高西斯亦有入場欣賞,還說自己看得「如醉如癡」,十分喜歡。他又以個人名義向觀眾極力推薦,更以「馬田史高西斯推介的《一代宗師》」為電影做勢。他受訪時也對中國功夫讚不絕口:「他們的戲包含和傳遞了愛的強度和烈度以及中國功夫的專心和規矩:詠春、八極、八卦和形意,都是(組成中國功夫)不可分割的一種力量。」

  對王家衛電影着迷

  問到馬田史高西斯為甚麼要推薦《一代宗師》,他說:「一直以來,我都對王家衛的電影非常着迷,而這一部尤其讓我震驚。我以前一直從另一個角度思考:到底甚麼才是王家衛?他的電影到底有甚麼特殊之處?後來我才發現,跟意大利導演費德里柯·費里尼(Federico Fellini)一樣,王家衛的作品是不能被理解或者轉化成其他藝術形式的。它只能以電影的形式存在,電影的故事只能發生在一個由影像組成的世界裏。在那裏,所有的東西都是通過攝影機把故事緊緊聯繫在一起的。」他又大讚梁朝偉和章子怡都是非常優秀的演員,很享受欣賞他們的作品,他說:「他們在《2046》中有過的精彩表演,看到他們再次為王家衛工作,有種似曾相識的感覺。」

一代宗师攻美报捷
娱乐 2013年9月3日

http://www.orientaldaily.com.my/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=72210:&Itemid=200

(香港3日讯)王家卫执导的《一代宗师》上周五在全美上映,首周末票房告捷,累计264万美金(约792万令吉),有望超越2007年《色‧戒》保持的460万元美金(约1亿380万令吉),登上近6年来在美最卖座华语片宝座。巧的是,这2部电影都由梁朝伟主演,显见他在国际影坛的能见度之高。

李安执导的《色‧戒》2007年在全美上映时,连映4个月,票房达1亿380万令吉。如今《一代宗师》短短上映3天,不仅戏院从原定600间扩增至749间,票房开出792万令吉佳绩,一扫近年华语片在美国市场的低迷惨况,而美国最卖座的华语片记录仍是李安执导的《臥虎藏龙》,票房逾1.2亿美金(约3亿6000万令吉)。

《一代宗师》女主角章子怡前晚在央视年度公益节目《开学第一课》中谈「梦想」,她忆起第一次出国参加影展却如「鸭子听雷」不懂英文而吃亏,因此决心要以流畅英语站上国际影坛。她日前赴美宣传《一代宗师》时,以流利英语接受多家外媒採访,她表示:「梦想实现的时刻,很幸福。」

香港今个星期四映《一代宗师》美版104分钟!!
http://tieba.baidu.com/p/2586574636

This coming Thursday, Hong Kong is airing the latest edited Grandmaster film with Dolby sound and other extra trimmings. It's 104 minutes long.

I have a DVD copy of the Chinese Grandmaster film which I scanned through rather quickly couple months back, and somehow the storyline seems a little derailing in places. Recently I went to watch the US version of the Grandmaster film in theater. It's much more compacted. The fighting scenes at the beginning looks totally awesome on the big screen. It's not only the action that captivates, but the positioning, the camera work is truly amazing. The story holds better (after the new edits). However, it all went by so quickly, that I really can't put much thoughts into words (and this is after going through all these film reviews & news postings). It's like one and a half hour of the film, and it's over. A bit shell shocked... Pack my belongings and walked out of the theater. Still a good film to see it again if you are interested.

- Sandy

《一代宗師》香港上「幽靈場」 為爭逐奧斯卡?

The Grandmaster (US Version) screened in Hong Kong Theater a few days ago (Mega Box - 40 seats, 5 times a day for the past 3 days). It was completely sold out . It was speculated that the special screening took place prior 9/30/2013 in order to run for the next year Oscar Foreign film (late February or early March).

It needs to be screened in the same theater for 7 days straight - according to the report - to qualify for the nomination, and only ONE nomination can be submitted from each region (in this case, Hong Kong). No wonder there is a mad dash for these special screenings.

http://hk.apple.nextmedia.com/enews/realtime/20130913/51725117

王家衛執導電影《一代宗師》美國版非常低調地於香港上映,低調得唔知點解有人知,話咁快就爆晒。一場得40個位,想唔爆好難,就連聽晚10點10分嗰場,都爆咗了。

話晒係一套大片,何以要屈就喺只得四行嘅Mega Box上映?而唔揀大院呢?有網民質疑:「到底是真播還是假播?」更質疑今次放映目的為何。

有網民就陰謀論,指《一代宗師》美國版低過上映,係為咗「申奧」——奧斯卡。著名影評blog「講.鏟.片」直頭話,唔少電影為咗爭咗來年二至三月奧斯卡最佳外語片提名,一定要趕及9月30號之前上映,而每個地區可提供一名電影參加,且至少要喺一間戲院連播七日。05年陳可辛執導電影《如果.愛》,被指偷步「申奧」。明明安排於同年聖誕檔上映,但就於九月喺得16個座位嘅UA太古城戲院Director’s Club「偷步」上映約十天。全片得英文字幕版本。

除咗《如果.愛》,陳嘉上執導電影《畫皮》亦出過同一招數,早半個月喺MCL德福戲院連映七日,號稱全部爆晒,但最吊詭係,該片某啲號稱full house嘅場次,播映之時,戲院根本未開門。同樣,09年楊凡電影《淚王子》,都用同一手段「申奧」,又係號稱一早爆滿,一票難求。呢啲,叫做「幽靈場」。

難免令人懷疑,「偷步」上映只係一種申奧手段,而同時,片商根本唔想俾觀眾先睹為快。一來驚盜錄,二來削弱正式上映時之聲勢。故每次都係靜雞雞上映,然後顯示full house。想睇?等正式上映。

故此,《一代宗師》美版今次無聲無息喺Mega Box上映,連續三日(9月13、14及15),每日五場40人座位戲院上映,都全部full晒,究竟係咪真係有600個神通廣大戲迷收到風、一早去晒撲飛睇,定係,只屬又一次「申奧」嘅歷史重演?

《一代宗師》嘅澤東就回覆本報查詢,表示:「其實今次上映同奧斯卡無關,因為所有喺9月30號之前上映嘅戲,都可以參加奧斯卡。」信焉?

《一代宗師》美國版香港首映 全場得40個位

http://hk.apple.nextmedia.com/enews/realtime/20130913/51724841

王家衛執導電影《一代宗師》,連Blu-ray都出埋,忽然又重映了?在香港?

是的,原來《一代宗師》已經由噚日開始重映,係108分鐘版本,亦即是荷里活版本,而香港嗰個版本,有131分鐘。咁兩個版本有乜嘢唔同?唔係剪短咗咁簡單,而係加插咗一啲亞洲版冇嘅戲同場面,所 以亞洲版係剪咗超過20分鐘。

不同之處:
1.章子怡戲份少咗,梁朝偉多番啲戲,兩人分庭抗禮。不過,論搶鏡度,仍然係章子怡。

2.張震戲份更少,講佢飾演嘅一線天只係一個流落香港嘅八極拳宗師,特務身份只係靠旁白輕輕帶過,就連理髮店嗰場戲都刪埋,但唔使擔心,睇過嘅都盛讚整體貫串得仲好,冇咗之前零碎感覺。而且,美版加番一線天同葉問用剃刀對鐵筷子嘅對打場面,畫聲皆無敵。

3.張永成(葉問妻子、宋慧喬飾)加咗幾個大特寫。

4.美版加咗好多交代劇情同人物身份嘅字幕,方便理解。不過有觀眾就唔同意將「見自己、見天地、見眾生」譯成 ‘being, knowing, doing’,認為「完全不是那回事。」

上次《一代宗師》喺香港上映,已經係今年一月嘅事。依家低調重映,仲係美版,但粵、國語對白,不過就係英文字幕。

王家卫新版《一代宗师》登陆美国
2013年09月03日 09:32 来源:新华网 雷涅·罗德里格斯

http://intl.ce.cn/qqss/201309/03/t20130903_24710438.shtml

【美国《华盛顿邮报》网站8月31日报道】题:王家卫凭借武术史诗片《一代宗师》闯荡新天地(记者雷涅·罗德里格斯)

  人们曾预料2008年春季上映的《蓝莓之夜》会成为中国知名电影导演王家卫大举进军美国影坛的突破之作———这是他执导的第一部英语电影,而他之前的作品《花样年华》、《重庆森林》、《春光乍泄》、《2046》等曾为他在艺术影院和电影节上赢得了国际影迷群。

  但是尽管包括裘德·洛、纳塔莉·波特曼和蕾切尔·韦兹的演员阵容星光四射,温斯坦影片公司也进行了卖力推广,该片却在美国遭遇影评和商业上的双重失败,票房收入不到100万美元。但该片在海外的境遇要好得多,票房收入近2200万美元。

  于是王家卫从好莱坞出走,回到了自己的故土。大约五年之后,他凭着自己迄今最出色的影片之一再度现身。《一代宗师》是部波澜壮阔的史诗片,它借助李小龙师傅叶问的一生,讲述了中国历史上混乱喧嚣的二十年中发生的故事。

  充斥着精心编排的激烈打斗场面的《一代宗师》是王家卫所拍摄过的动作成分最多的影片,也是他最具个人特点的影片之一。影片把他熟稔的煎熬爱情主题(片中梁朝伟扮演的叶问与章子怡扮演的另一名武术大师宫二之间有段未曾表白的遗憾恋情)放在了1937年日本侵华的大背景中———这是一个永远改写了中国文化的事件。

  他说:“《一代宗师》对我来说是一个全新领域,因为我之前对武术一无所知。这也是我第一次拍摄以上世纪30年代的中国为背景的影片。不过我在写剧本的时候,并没有注意到影片中的爱情元素。叶问与宫二的一见钟情超出了男女之爱,他们都是武术家,他们更像是同道。当他们被迫分手时,他们不仅是在与朋友或恋人告别,而且是在与一个时代告别,这个时代很可能会被证明是他们人生中最美好的时光。”

  王家卫在开机之前用了三年时间研究《一代宗师》。他在动作片影星李连杰的武术教练吴彬的陪同下游历中国大陆和台湾的城市,拜会多位武术宗师,领教他们的哲学和不同技击风格。王家卫希望确保哪怕是最微小的细节都不会弄错,因为他觉得自己有责任向一段即将被遗忘的历史致敬。

  他说:“我并不是想拍一部功夫片,我想拍的是一部关于功夫历史的影片。”

  《一代宗师》共拍摄了22个月,前后跨越三年,这使得演员们有时间成为他们所代表的各个功夫流派的专家。王家卫坚持让梁朝伟和章子怡在拍摄打斗场景时亲自上阵(不使用替身),片中的动作镜头拍得极其精致,以至于需要几周的时间才能完成。影片开头时叶问在暴雨中挡开一群徒弟的镜头就花了一个月时间。

  不过,事实上王家卫的某些风格上的浮华被割舍掉了。由温斯坦影片公司发行的《一代宗师》美国版片长108分钟,而该片在中国上映的版本长达130分钟。王家卫说:“我们有条款要把在美国上映的版本控制在两小时以内。但是我并不希望只是剪掉一些镜头。影片原始版本的结构是十分精密的:如果你删掉某些东西,影片的结构会坍塌。因此我决定为美国观众制作一个完全不同的版本,以一种更为线性的方式叙述故事。”

A good statistic for folks in Hong Kong:

Hong Kong ALL TIME OPENINGS:
(what people are watching, it seems like mostly western films):
http://www.boxofficemojo.com/intl/hongkong/opening/

Hong Kong Yearly Box Office (2013):
(look at the distributor and the date of release - the tops are disney and summertime release)
http://www.boxofficemojo.com/intl/hongkong/yearly/

Hong Kong Box Office Index (2013):
(when the big hits happens - mostly summertime between June-August, school breaks)
