- Fantasy blockbuster PAINTED SKIN 2 heading for the UK

The film that blew the roof off box office records across Asian this summer - Martial arts, fantasy epic - Painted Skin: The Resurrection is heading for a release in the UK, but all we can say is its damn good job we’re here to tell you that, because they’re at it again with the name changes.
We really wish distributors would stop rebadging their Asian film titles into something that has little or no relation to the original. Yes sure it’s great they’re getting a release, but sometimes they really shoot themselves in the foot with these overly jazzed up names.
How anyone (who isn’t sensible and regularly reads 24fps) in the UK, eagerly searching for release news for ‘Painted Skin: The Resurrection’ is expected to know that it’s ‘Demon Hunter: The Resurrection’ that they should be looking for, seems to have passed the marketeers by. Sticking ‘Demon’ on a front cover doesn’t guarantee you more sales guys. Just saying......
Rant over... It’s on to the good (or great) stuff.....A very purdy hi-res UK trailer has just arrived, to remind us all why we really want to see this movie. Painted Skin 2 hits the UK on DVD and Blu, on Nov 5.
