Capitalizing on the popularity of battle royale mobile games, China’s Huawen Picture Group has put together Biubiubiu an action drama film around a struggling Esports streamer.

Heavily inspired by titles like PUBG, the streamer forms a successful Esports team with unlikely old friends to win a tournament in an attempt to become closer to his son. What is interesting about Biubiubiu is the way the film depicts in-game action. Instead of simply relying on CGI, scenes of the fictional game are expressed through live-action sequences that provide an interesting element of realism.

Watch the trailer for Biubiubiu releasing exclusively in China August 6 on Youku.

For more entertainment news, Toei Animation recently revealed the title and character designs for its upcoming Dragon Ball Super film.
