Warning: The following page contains a video whose preview screen contains bare breasts, which the MPAA has found to cause cancer in rats or something. Also it’s NSFW.
5) Machete Trailer
A new, R-rated Machete trailer is released full of horrific violence… but also a small shot of boobies. On Saturday, a nerd stabs another nerd in the eye at SDCC. Coincidence? I think not.
4) DC Universe Online “Who Do You Trust” Trailer
Forget the MMORPG — hell, forget the game entirely. I just want to watch a movie where the fight between the Justice League and the Legion of Doom has exploded into all-out war. And I still can’t get over how awesome these character designs are.
3) The Walking Dead Preview
Docked only for being a crappy bootleg video. This show looks totally amazing. I can’t wait for it to start. Hell, I can’t wait for AMC to put out a decent version of this preview.
2) Young Justice
Hasbro didn’t show much from the new Transformers or G.I. Joe cartoons, but what they did show was trounced by WB’s Young Justice. It actually stars the Justice League, characters will die, and it looks somehow better that DC’s direct-to-DVD cartoon movies. Outstanding.
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.
