While we all wait with varying levels of interest for the movie adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, it may interest you to know there’s more than one president-as-asskicker-of-the-supernatural movie on the way. Above is the trailer for FDR, American Badass, where the 32nd President of the United States gets in his souped-up, weaponized wheelchair and takes on werewolf Hitler, Mussolini and Hirohito, and, well… uses a lot of profanity. It looks low-budget as shit, but somehow it’s got both Barry Bostwick as FDR and Ray Wise as General MacArthur, and it looks as fabulous as it is wrong, and it looks very, very wrong. If nothing else, it will be the finest movie where FDR screams “SHIT GOBLINS!” ever made. (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.
