A new redband trailer for The RZA’s The Man with the Iron Fists came out this weekend. Actually, a non-redband trailer came out to, so if you’ve seen a new trailer and it didn’t have 1) the names of the movie’s main players, 2) lots and lots of CG blood and 3) a shot of RZA punching a dude’s head off, then you didn’t see the redband one, and you really need to. It should go without saying how excited I am for the movie. It’s like RZA saw Kill Bill and said, “This is good, but it’s kind of little slow. It could use maybe 300% more action and graphic dismemberment.” (Via Geeks of Doom)
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.
