The fantasy blockbuster "Painted Skin 2" will hit cinemas nationwide on June 28.

A series of photographs featuring actress Zhou Xun turning into a fox demon were released today, Mtime.com reports.

In the film, Xiaowei, a fox demon portrayed by Zhou Xun, needs to trade skins with Vicki Zhao to play a role.

The exchange of skins was a major hurdle for the make-up team, an undertaking so difficult that it was broken up into 35 separate sections. In order to really get a vivid image, 100 makeup artists spent 60 weeks preparing for this single scene.

For actress Zhou Xun, playing the role of Xiaowei was not an easy job.

"I spent 5 hours on makeup before shooting and two hours on makeup removal every day. I am the first to come to the set and the last one leave," Zhou was quoted as saying. "Although the makeup artists and I are tortured by the process, the final result is pretty successful. I believe Xiaowei's on-screen fox demon will give audiences an unusual visual shock."
