Care for a redband trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter? There’s some new footage and a lot of CG blood, which I don’t mind because the CG blood comes from scene of our 16th president just owning the shit out of countless bloodsuckers, so I feel it’s used in a worthy cause. I’m pretty sure this movie is just going to get crushed by all the superhero movies this summer, but that’s okay. Remember what Abe said: “All men are created equal. Except Batman. That guy’s fucking awesome.”
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.
