PAINTED SKIN: THE RESURRECTION theatrical engagements

Well Go Entertainment opens this Fant-Asia film in limited U.S. engagements. PAINTED SKIN: THE RESURRECTION is a sort of semi-sequel to PAINTED SKIN (2008): most of the original cast members (except for star Donnie Yen) return, although not necessarily in the same roles. The theatrical trailer looks gorgeous, and frankly it’s been too long since one of these epic Oriental fantasies played on the big screen on these shores. Let’s hope it’s better than ZOO WARRIORS!

PLOT SYNOPSIS:

According to ancient lore, if a human freely offers their heart to a demon, that monster can become mortal, experiencing the true pains and passions of existence. This is the ultimate triumph of the underworld.

Xiaowei (Xun Zhou, THE GREAT MAGICIAN, FLYING SWORDS OF DRAGON GATE), a millennia-old fox spirit, is freed from her frozen prison and transforms into a dangerous seductress, consuming living hearts to keep her beautiful as she searches for her chance to become human.

Meanwhile, Princess Jing (Wei Zhao, 14 BLADES, RED CLIFF, SHAOLIN SOCCER),hiding her marred beauty behind a golden mask, flees an unknown threat to her kingdom by pursuing the only man she ever loved: the guard who was unable to protect her, so many years ago.

A twist of fate brings Princess Jing and Xiaowei together, and a slow game of wits, deceit, and seduction begins for the princess’ very own heart.
