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.
