There’s a third Sucker Punch trailer, this time with no dialogue and a tiny bit of new footage. I honestly can’t think of anything new to say about it, which is a little weird when you realize it’s a movie about sexy girls fighting dragons, robots, and giant, gun-toting samurai. Long story short, I’m still looking forward to the movie, but still not crazy-looking forward to it. And the article title is supposed to be based on AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck.” Yeah, it’s a big stretch and kind of terrible but honestly, as crappy as it was, I felt it was good enough.
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.
