Since the Prometheus trailer has already been taken down — and it wasn’t particularly good when it was up, either (that’s what she said) — I wanted to post some kind of nerd movie news to replace, but all I can find is this trailer for the Spanish horror-comedy Game of Werewolves. There are no subtitles, I have no idea what’s going on, and the werewolves look a great deal like dudes in ape suits, so your mileage may vary. Really, I think the only reason I’m even mentioning it is because once I thought up the article title I couldn’t not use it. I’m sure you understand. (Via Bloody Disgusting)
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.
