Seems like Warner Bros. is pulling down all the copies of this second Clash of the Titans trailer it can find, although it’s much better than the first one. It’s a helluva a lot more action-packed than the first one, and features more mythological monsters — it’s no Harryhausen CotT, of course, but it looks like a fun dumb action flick. Plus, it just dawned on me that Liam Neeson might actually hurl a lightning bolt at somebody, and that’s something I’d very much like to see. (Via /Film)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
