Well, good to know it’s not just the good ol USA that’s coming under attack by these dastardly outer space alien menace. London is apparently getting their share, too, at least according to this trailer for Joe Cornish’s sci-fi/action/comedy “Attack the Block”. Apparently the youths of the world are our last line of defense. Nothing like mouthy brats to save the world. Via Empire.
From the producers of SHAUN OF THE DEAD and SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD comes ATTACK THE BLOCK, a fast funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters. It turns a London tower block into a fortress under siege, and a weapon wielding teenage thugs into heroes. It’s inner city versus outer space.
The biggest name here is Nick Frost of “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” fame, with a bunch of kids as the main characters. It looks decent enough, and you’ll be able to catch it at SXSW if you’re around Austin next week.
