Here’s a new extended trailer for The Losers, starring the Comedian and Uhura and Captain America, among others. I think it looks pretty good, but I also think I’m still less excited to see it than the summer’s other two big action flicks, The Expendables and The A-Team. I don’t really hold that against The Losers, because I genuinely think it looks pretty good; it’s more that this is probably the finest summer for extremely awesome action films in years. Third place isn’t bad at all. Besides, they’re supposedly losers, they should be fine with this.
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.
