For years, audiences have been hoping to see the world of anime adapted for the big screen. In recent years, with films like Alita: Battle Angel, we’ve started to actually see this become a reality. After all these years, the technology is finally getting to point to where we can see these visions actually executed believably. Though while Hollywood may have a couple of solid hits, I feel like the future of anime on the big screen is in the next generation of filmmakers.
Enter the YouTube channel RivenX3i and filmmaker Christopher C. Cowan. He’s worked on such films as Solo: A Star Wars Story and Kingsman: The Golden Circle in the camera department, but after working in the industry for a while, has taken a breather to really throw his hat in the ring to direct an action set piece inspired by the anime My Hero Academia.
Check it out below!
The setpiece shows a man hopping a wall with a newly-stolen wallet in hand, only for him to be confronted with a do-gooder set on righting the wrong. An amazing fight ensues that really captures the spirit and style of My Hero Academia, quirks and all! I have no idea how his backpack works, but it does seem like whatever is inside it allows him to teleport. It’s a unique ability that’s used perfectly.
I dunno about you, but I wanna see this guy take on a live-action shonen anime for the big screen!
