Okay… Mark Hamill, voicing an evil crazy dude, in a dark, gothic, noir-ish big city. Way to stretch yourself, Mark.
I kid, of course — this isn’t a live-action Batman: The Animated Series (although how gloriously awesome would that be) but a trailer for the Hungarian sci-fi flick Thelomeris. Other than being subtitled “City of Time,” looking kind of steampunky and starring Hamill as “The Stranger,” I have no fucking clue what’s going on. Does Topless Robot have any Hungarian fans that can tell me what the hell this movie is about? (Via Twitch)
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.
