Fun fact: Michael Shannon has a really weird navel. I know this because at an awards brunch the other day, he volunteered it as a topic to all of us in attendance, before showing it off. So now you know: he has an outtie that looks weirdly crispy and blackened, like an overcooked pig in a blanket. Or like he really was birthed in a Kryptonian matrix.
Anyway, in this one he’s not the superhero. His kid is.
We also get Adam Driver looking so incredibly dorky that I still can’t understand why he’s the major bad guy in the new Star Wars, but I do understand why he wears the mask.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
