One Fallout 4 and film fan uses assets from the most recent entry in Bethesda’s post-apocalyptic RPG series to recreate the trailer for action flick Jason Bourne.
Thanks to YouTuber Matt “UpIsNotJump” Hamlin, the short ad spot for the forthcoming Jason Bourne movie starring Matt Damon shown during this year’s Super Bowl now has a “remake” trailer of sorts with dialogue, setting, and characters for the film having been redone in Bethesda’s Fallout 4. Obviously, with Fallout 4 being set far into the future in a post-apocalyptic setting and the new Jason Bourne having a more contemporary timeline, the final product is not perfectly shot-for-shot, but its pacing and edits are on point.
While the Fallout 4 remake trailer isn’t completely accurate, considering the fact that the Jason Bourne trailer debuted just a few days ago, UpIsNotJump should be applauded simply for the quick turnaround on his effort. Not to mention, even though Tommy Lee Jones’ character is only cut to briefly, there’s no mistaking him in the fan-made trailer, as the likeness that the YouTuber made for the actor using the open world title’s character creation system is almost identical.
Since the plot for the fifth installment in the Jason Bourne franchise was not explored in the trailer shown earlier this week, fans who may have not seen the original promo cut shouldn’t expect any overt details about the narrative to be mentioned. Really, UpIsNotJump only had action scenes on which to rely, which worked relatively well for Fallout 4‘s style. Those who wish to view the remake trailer can watch it in the video below.
This isn’t the first time that a video game’s properties have been used to recreate a highly anticipated movie’s trailer. As it happens, a couple of weeks ago, the theatrical trailer for Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman got a Grand Theft Auto 5 remake from the YouTuber known as Merfish.
We’ve known for quite some time that Fallout 4 fans are a creative bunch, and UpIsNotJump’s remake trailer is yet another example of their ability to use the game as inspiration for interesting creations. The YouTuber’s production now stands alongside a pantheon of fan-made goodies, from physical constructions like the pipe bolt action pistol replica to intangible ones such as the catchy rockabilly anthem written about the game from the artist Miracle of Sound entitled “Going Nuclear”.
As many gamers are aware, Fallout 4 is flush with mods, and in order to make the above trailer, UpIsNotJump undoubtedly had to rely on a bevy of different ones so as to ensure the clip came to fruition. Bearing that in mind, once Bethesda releases the official Garden of Eden Creation Kit mod tools for the game, fans are likely to flood the Internet with even more Fallout 4 in the near future.
Fallout 4 is out now and is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, while Jason Bourne‘s theatrical release is July 29, 2016.
