"Painted Skin: The Resurrection" has become the highest grossing domestic movie after making about 685 million yuan (US$ 107.1 million) since it hit mainland cinemas on June 28, Mtime.com reports.

The top two spots of the highest grossing movies once belonged to Jiang Wen's "Let the Bullets Fly" (676.6 million yuan) and Feng Xiaogang's "Aftershock" (673.3 million yuan).

After four weeks of screening, "Painted Skin: The Resurrection" has successfully bumped off those two blockbusters and takes first place.

The news brought mixed reactions with some describing it "perverse" for a movie that only screens in 3D format.

The movie also has lower scores than "Let the Bullets Fly" on movie-rating websites and the director Wu Er'shan is not popular with Chinese audiences.
