Reading what we’ve seen from the American screenings of this movie especially from SXSW Festival this is going to be a massive hit and the great thing its a British movie! ATTACK THE BLOCK marks the debut feature for Joe Cornish aka one half of the Adam & Joe comedy duo (who werent actually funny, but funnier when they wrote for others) who used to have there own tv show and now Radio show.
We’ve seen the hilarious trailer and now we’ve been sent 2 new clips from Optimum Releasing , they were shown on Film 2011 tv show last month but now there below if you missed them along with a spanking new tv spot! If any of you lucky souls are heading to London for The Kapow! ComicCon you can meet the director and the cast for a Q&A!
Attack the Block is a fast, funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters. It turns a London housing estate into a sci-fi playground. A tower block into a fortress under siege. And teenage street kids into heroes. It¹s inner city versus outer space.
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.
Starring Nick Frost, Luke Treadaway and Jodie Whitaker and executive produced by Edgar Wright, Attack the Block is in cinemas 11th May
