? Leonard Nimoy will voice Optimus Prime’s brother Sentinel Prime in Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon. Since 1) It’s Nimoy and 2) Nimoy already has Transformers voicing cred, I was a little happy, but then I realized Sentinel’s going to say “Fo’ shizzle” or something equally awful at some point, and then I got sad.

? The first six minutes of Sucker Punch are now available to watch legally on the infonetmentsupernetway, in a desperate attempt to get people to watch the whole movie in theaters. Feel free to check it out here, if you’re so inclined.
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.
