Yep, it’s a preview of a preview, meaning this clip is about 10 seconds long. Still, if you missed last year’s Jonah Hex panel at SDCC, this is the first time you’re seeing the film in action. All I can tell about the film is that it includes a horse with two gatling guns on it — which I’m pretty sure would make a horse shit itself to death in pure terror in reality — which means the film isn’t taking itself too seriously, which could be a good sign or a bad sign. I’m cautiously optimistic. When the full preview finally hits, rest assured I’ll post it here.
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.
