Suicide Squad Trailer Remade in Fallout 4

By | 6 months ago 

One Fallout 4 fan uses Bethesda Game Studio’s post-apocalyptic RPG to recreate the latest trailer for DC Entertainment’s and Warner Bros. Pictures’ Suicide Squad.

It looks as if the YouTuber UpIsNotJump won’t be satisfied until he’s recreated the trailer for each and every major Hollywood movie release and TV series coming out this year within the world of Bethesda’s Fallout 4. This time around, he’s has taken it upon himself to utilize PC mods to recontextualize the entirety of the “Blitz” trailer for this summer’s highly anticipated film adaptation of the comic book series Suicide Squad by remaking it in Fallout 4.

While it’s obvious that Matt “UpIsNotJump” Hamlin lovingly remade the teaser for the Suicide Squad movie preview, there are definitely a lot of elements from the official trailer that either don’t fully work, or simply get lost in translation. There’s only so much Fallout 4‘s existing in-game assets, mods, and character creation system can do, after all.

As seen in the video below, UpIsNotJump’s pacing and editing cuts are certainly on par with the source material, but of course, Fallout 4‘s environments, items, and characters don’t exactly sync up with those found within the set-pieces and scenes of the original preview. Not to mention, it’s hard to get past the lack of emotion and genuine reactions found on the faces of Fallout 4‘s dead-eyed characters when they’re supposed to be conveying menace, playfulness, incredulity, or any real sentiment for that matter. Nevertheless, UpIsNotJump does a competent job at re-imagining what it would be like if the characters from Suicide Squad found themselves within the realm of Fallout 4.

As previously mentioned, UpIsNotJump has put together a plethora of live-action preview recreations using Fallout 4. For instance, he recently ported the Star Wars Rogue One trailer into the post-apocalyptic RPG to interesting results. Perhaps one of his most popular productions, though, is his remake of the trailer for Captain America: Civil War. However, one could easily argue that UpIsNotJump’s most original and entertaining Fallout 4 creation is the YouTuber’s bizarre, yet engrossing Super Mutant rap video starring the game’s character Strong.

At any rate, with more movies inspired by comic books coming out later this year, fans should expect UpIsNotJump to eventually give their trailers the Fallout 4 treatment. X-Men: Apocalypse is coming out this May and Doctor Strange is set to release this Fall, but with the YouTuber not having touched their previews yet, it’s safe to presume we will see a Fallout 4 version of them sometime in the future.

What do you think about UpIsNotJump’s remake of the Suicide Squad trailer in Fallout 4? Which live-action property’s teaser do you think he should recreate next? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

Fallout 4 is out now and is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, while Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters on August 6, 2016.
