Above is a short trailer for a CG zombie flick called A.D., found by Zombie Info. Despite the very poor zombie survival techniques displayed by the characters — i.e., just sitting in the middle of the road and allowing themselves to get surrounded — it’s a beautiful trailer, especially the environments. I even like the extreme, Clone Wars-esque character designs, since they don’t look like they’re actually made of wood, and it looks extra cool on the zombies. Zombie Info has way more, er, zombie info on the makers and their hopes to turn this into a real movie; you should check it out. Thanks to Snoodle for the tip. (Via io9)
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.
