The Hunger Games isn’t the only eagerly anticipated movie coming out in 2012 with barely any footage to show. Gainax just released this teaser for Evangelion 3.0, a.k.a. Evangelion: Q, which they announced for release next year (if you can announce a release date for an unspecified point during 365 days that they might not meet). But unlike the Hunger Games, Evangelion: Q shows a giant robot twirling in the air and firing a bigass gun. Now that’s entertainment, Hunger Games. What? You don’t have a giant robot? Well, then at least give the girl a goddamned eyepatch, man! (Seriously, what’s up with that? Is that new? Did this happen in Evangelion 2.22? Man, I need to catch up on my Rebuild of Eva.) Thanks to the rather belligerent DWP102589 for the tip.
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.
