It’s been forever since I last mentioned Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine’s blood-soaked horror-comedy Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil (specifically, January of 2010, which is several eons in internet time) but this new redband trailer proves two things haven’t changed: 1) the film still looks funny as hell and 2) they still show way too goddamn much in the trailer. It’s fun to watch, but if you actually want to be slightly surprised whenever Magnet gets this in theaters or DVD, you might want to give it a pass. Even though it’s pretty great. But don’t watch it. Although it’s really funny. I SAID DON’T WATCH IT. (Via First Showing)
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.
