The new street fighter movie It is one of the adaptations to the world of cinema that currently has the most prejudices. Two films were enough in the past for people to throw their hands up when they heard the announcement of this new film a few weeks ago, something totally normal due to the bad reviews that previous projects received.
However, a few hours ago The Hollywood Reporter announced who was in advanced talks to direct this film, something that many will not understand, but which has caused enormous relief for many: the hermanos Philippou. And although it seems like a joke, this couple of youtubers are the great reason why you should have hope in the next adaptation of Street Fighter whose
We put you in context: the Philippou twins did not start in the cinema after spending time in an academy or studying. These brothers were born directly from Youtube with a channel called Rack Rack, making videos that have become a must-view for anyone who likes well-crafted sketches. From DC vs. Marvel to Ronald McDonald tearing up a ball park with a chainsaw, this couple hasn’t stopped making exceptional shorts on a shoestring budget.
But the best of all is that these brothers have already made a live action adaptation of Street Fighter 7 years ago in collaboration with Capcom to promote Resurrection, a miniseries based on the popular fighting game. Which it was the result? A 3 minute video that showed more love for the saga than all the live action combined. RackaRacka perfectly chose the way in which the fights were carried out in real life so that it was as similar as possible to video games, also giving us an infinite number of tremendously fun references.
In addition, they do not skimp on violence and if they have to add liters of blood to the scene, they will do it without question. You just have to take a look at his YouTube channel to know that this adaptation is in very good hands and that the producers have finally found the key to make adaptations to match the original work.
