Like many fans of the Eragon book series, Steven Davis was crushingly disappointed with the 2006 Eragon movie. So he decided to make a new trailer for a new Eragon movie, using absolutely nothing from the original one. I can’t decide if you Eragon fans will appreciate the awesomeness of this fan-made trailer, or heartbroken that the actual movie wasn’t a tenth as great as this. For the record, Eragon author Christopher Paolini himself tweeted and approved this video; if it’s good enough for him, I imagine it’s good enough for you.
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.
