Amazon’s Fallout movie has been in the works for a few years now. Die-hard fans have been eagerly waiting for an update since the first announcement. The IS television The series is based on the post-apocalyptic gaming franchise of the same name and will air on Amazon Prime sometime in 2024.
Unfortunately, fans got more than they bargained for last week when Amazon released a poster to promote the Fallout series. Users were quick to point out that there are some strange things in the diagram, suggesting that he created it AI.
At first glance, everything seems to be in order. The illustration depicts Vault Boy, the iconic mascot of the Fallout franchise, on a billboard for pre-war Los Angeles. On closer inspection, however, there are some strange anomalies in the image.
For example, why does the red car in the foreground have two front ends? Why don’t so many of the buildings in the background have windows or doors? Why are people walking in the middle of the road? One eagle-eyed user even noticed that the person was under the mascot’s left arm seems to have three legs.
If you are keeping up to date on Generative AIyou are probably already familiar AI art. You provide a hint, choose a style, and hit generate to get a ready image. It’s fast, cheap, and completely unpredictable – completely like buying a burger from one of America’s fast food chains.
The inherent problems with AI This means that it is usually seen as a cheap way to create illustrations without paying a real designer to do the job properly. Amazon probably has no shortage of money to spend on fancy graphics. Users were quick to point out their frustration that a multi-billion dollar company couldn’t be bothered to hire an artist to design their illustration.
If Amazon wanted to double down in defense of its poster, I’m sure they could play off the art as some kind of surrealist work of genius. Perhaps the image is a masterpiece of interpretation showing the effects of ingesting too many Day Trippers or other pre-war chemicals of the Fallout Universe.
Unfortunately, even if Amazon was playing the ‘it was a deliberate card, I’m not sure the internet would let them off the hook that easily.
