Thanks to good folks at Empire who have revealed the world exclusive trailer one of ATTACK THE BLOCK trailer! It’s Inner city London and a group of hoodies are our last hope as the team to defend from a nasty alien invasion.
The movie reeks of greatness and you can see the elements of Shaun of The Dead throughout the movie and you can bet this will do what Shaun of The Dead done for zombie flick Attack the block will give alien invasion flicks an extra dimension of fun as well as something worth watching this summer. If you watched BBC’s Film 2011 you would have got a few sneak peeks at this movie and if your going to SXSW next week in Austin Texas you lucky beggers will get the world premmiere of the movie too!
I’ll admit sometimes website, bloggers may go over the top with the hype of some movies we promote but honestly this one looks worth the hype!
The movie stars Nick Frost, Jodie Whittaker, Luke Treadaway, Jumayn Hunter,Danielle Vitalis with Joe Cornish directing (who happens to be a producer of Shaun of The Dead & Scott Pilgrim Vs The World). Attack The Block will be unleashed in UK &Ireland on May 13th.

officalsynopsis:Trainee nurse Sam is walking home to her flat in a scary South London tower block when she¹s robbed by a gang of masked, hooded youths. She¹s saved when the gang are distracted by a bright meteorite, which falls from the sky and hits a nearby parked car. Sam flees, just before the gang are attacked by a small alien creature that leaps from the wreckage. The gang chase the creature and kill it, dragging its ghoulish carcass to the top of the block, which they treat as their territory. While Sam and the police hunt for the gang, a second wave of meteors fall. Confident of victory against such feeble invaders, the gang grab weapons, mount bikes and mopeds, and set out to defend their turf. But this time, the creatures are bigger. Much bigger. Savage, shadowy and bestial, they are hunting their fallen comrade and nothing will stand in their way. The estate is about to become a battleground. And the bunch of no-hope kids who just attacked Sam are about to become her, and the block¹s, only hope.
