China Lion Entertainment will be releasing Painted Skin: The Resurrection, the sequel the Painted Skin, in Australia and around the world on 28 June 2012. They’ve given us the trailer to the epic fantasy to share, and it looks pretty impressive.
According to demon lore, it takes hundreds of years to attain human form. Even then, lacking a human heart, a demon cannot experience the true pains and passions of existence. However, there is a legend that if a pure human heart is freely offered to a demon, it can become a mortal and experience true life.
Painted Skin: The Resurrection is based on Pu Songling’s famous work from the Qing Dynasty “Erotic Ghost Story” starring Vicki Zhao as Princess Jing, Zhou Xun as Xiao Wei and Chen Kun as General Huo Xin in this big-budget supernatural action fantasy by rising director Wuershan.
Check local listings, as this will be playing in limited release around Australia at the end of June 2012.
