If you’re one of the few people who have been laying awake at night, wondering where, oh where might Kristen Kreuk’s career take her after the misunderstood cinematic mastpiece that was Street Fighter: Legend of Chun Li… seek professional help. But the answer happens to be that she’s apparently starring a hilariously low budget sci-fi horror-comedy flick with Billy Boyd, Amanda Tapping and Robin Dunne, titled Space Milkshake. My brain isn’t really able to process this trailer, so I’ll just set it here and leave it to you all to make There Will Be Blood references. Thanks to Ben for the tip.
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.
