Fallout TV Sequence First Official Clip Is Truly Very Humorous

With April 11 steadily approaching, the Fallout TV sequence promo tour is underway. We now have our first take a look at a scene from the upcoming Amazon Prime Video present based mostly on Bethesda’s RPG sport sequence, and if its tone matches this clip, we’re in for a hilarious journey.

Developed by Westworld co-creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Pleasure, Fallout is a post-apocalyptic drama based mostly on Bethesda’s long-running sport sequence, the newest of which was launched in 2018. Whereas the present was introduced in July 2020 and revealed in December 2023, we solely simply acquired an official trailer earlier this month that gave us a ton of particulars concerning the sequence. And as we speak, we acquired our first clip through the present’s official X (previously Twitter) account.

Within the clip, we see Vault Dweller Lucy (portrayed by Yellowjackets’ and Arcane: League of Legends’ Ella Purnell) try and de-escalate a battle with The Ghoul (Invincible’s Walton Goggins), who seems to be terrorizing the denizens of a downtrodden city. The Ghoul doesn’t stand down, Lucy shoots him with a dart and The Ghoul says that her try and tranquilize him was “a really small drop in a really, very giant bucket of medicine” earlier than pulling out his pistol. A member from an in-game faction you possibly can combat or be a part of known as (the Brotherhood of Metal), decked out in silver armor not in contrast to Halo’s Spartan garb, floats down from atop some rubble to demand The Ghoul “stand down or be minimize down.” However one of the best line right here is delivered by Ma June (portrayed by A Love Track’s Dale Dickey) who, whereas mendacity on the dust highway, provides an exasperated sigh and flatly calls Lucy a “fucking vault dweller.”

Vault Dwellers are the primary protagonists of the Fallout video games. Because the identify suggests, these folks sought refuge in underground chambers to keep away from the above-ground nuclear apocalypse, establishing their very own norms and traditions within the years spent there. They believed that they’d be preserving humanity alive, as they thought everybody on the floor would die because of the nuclear, um, fallout. So, when Vault Dwellers emerge 20 years later and discover a ruinous civilization with folks lingering round, they arrive throughout as weird old-timers who cling to traditions which can be lengthy misplaced. That’s what makes Ma June’s line so hilarious. Lucy doesn’t perceive something concerning the world she’s now strolling in, however she nonetheless desires to avoid wasting everybody anyway.

Contemplating the irreverence of the video games the sequence is predicated on, this clip looks like the difference is cleverly leaning into that humor whereas additionally refusing to have interaction in egregious fan service. I do know that online game variations could make us all a little bit cautious, so there was a wholesome little bit of skepticism with the Fallout TV sequence. Nonetheless, between this primary clip, the official trailer, and Nolan’s intent to stay trustworthy to the franchise’s lore, I believe we’re in for a deal with.
