New Fallout TV Show Trailer

New Fallout TV show trailer drops, looks like it could actually be good

This could be good after all

For some reason, the Fallout Teaser Trailer that dropped a few months ago just didn’t really resonate with me. The strong points of the IP, its post-apocalyptic world and intriguing “wild west” style narrative were missing from the mainly b-roll teaser. However, Amazon just released a new over 3-minute long trailer for the show and it looks a lot more like the Fallout I know.

Everything that felt missing from the teaser is actually front and center in this new trailer. We start with a look at life inside the vault, which looks half comfy and half dystopia. You know, your typical Fallout vault. We also get a look at some of the characters. First is Ella Purnell who plays Jean, a vault dweller who leaves the safety of the vault for the first time. In the trailer, her character appears cautiously optimistic about life on the surface, which is more or less how I felt leaving the vault for the first time in Fallout 3, though it didn’t last long.

Then there’s Walton Goggins who plays the Ghoul. The trailer actually starts by showing him before the nuclear war, as a vault salesman which fits. Then as a Ghoul, he appears to be the sarcastic carefree selfish character we’d expect from a Ghoul.

We also get a look at plenty of subtle yet “Fallout-esque” features throughout. Like a medical robot assuring Jean, “I’m simply going to harvest your organs!” Yep, it’s Fallout.

Of course, I’ll save my full judgment for when the series actually drops. But I can say I’m more optimistic that this will be a genuine Fallout story rather than the IP serving only as a name to the story like the recent Halo series.

All episodes of Fallout will become available for streaming on April 11, which is right around the corner!
