Second groovy, breezy trailer for Joe Cornish’s “Attack the Block” , the UK’s entry into the ever-growing alien invasion genre. It’s an action-comedy starring a bunch of ghetto kids in London, so don’t expect anything along the scales of, say, “Battle: Los Angeles”. The film recently had a very successful run at SXSW last month, and will open in the UK on May 13th. Stateside release dates have yet to be revealed.
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. It’s inner city versus outer space.
Starring Nick Frost, Jodie Whittaker and Luke Treadaway.
