I say supposedly, because the only new shot in it that I can tell is at the very end, where a jetpacked Optimus Prime fights some kind of giant robot anus-worm. If there’s new footage of shit breaking and exploding scattered throughout the rest of the trailer, it just looks like all the other footage of shit breaking and exploding to me, so my apologies. Anyways, I’m trying to avoid saying anything negative about Transformers 3 right now. Not, of course, because I’m keeping an open mind about this piece of shit, but because I don’t want to blow all my material before I write my F.A.Q.
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.
