? Topless Roboteer Greymattersplat alerted me to Creeporia, a movie he’s an extra in, which will hit VOD next month. It’s obviously tongue-in-cheek, but that doesn’t make the sight of a werewolf wearing a vest or an old dude dragging a sled full of severed heads any last awesome.
? Remember The Asylum’s trademark infringing Age of the Hobbits movie I said was going to get crushed? Warner Bros. has begun the crushing. Note: I sincerely doubt Age of the Hobbits is going to be awesome (or even get made), but it seemed unfair to call this article a “Bad Movie Trifecta” when Creeporia and the next entry look so fun.

? This is the trailer for Manborg. Watch it, and know your life has irrevocably changed for the better. Apparently it’s coming out in January, meaning I now have a new reason why I hope the world doesn’t end in December. (Via Gamma Squad)
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.
