Really, Sony? Someone assembles a 25-minute compilation of all the Amazing Spider-Man footage you’ve put out so far, and you try desperately to have it taken down. So what do you do just two days later? RELEASE THREE MORE MINUTES OF NEW FOOTAGE with three new clips (one above, and two after the jump). Who the hell is in charge of your promotional campaign, Mysterio? The Jackal? Julie Taymor? What the fuck are you going to do when the damn thing finally comes out next week, give out free burned DVD copies of the movie to every ticket buyer? (Via Blastr)
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.
