I’ve been hearing a lot of chatter about Attack the Block but I’ve gotta admit, I know squat about it. If you’re like me and have only heard good buzz about the U.K.’s sci-fi flick that wowed audiences at SXSW but are still iffy on the details, you’ve got to check out the new red band trailer. It gives a bit more detail than a normal trailer, so if you’re paranoid about being spoiled here’s the first, less fun and raunchy, green band trailer.
This trailer will set you up with what you need to know, but briefly, Attack the Block follows an inner city gang in South London who must fight aliens when they begin invading their neighborhood. Yeah, I’m sold already. But the trailer is hilarious and you should totally give it a watch. Attack the Block has little star power, the biggest name is Nick Frost. But what it lacks in big names it makes up for in over the top action and foul mouthed teens kickin’ alien butt.
ATTACK THE BLOCK follows a gang of tough inner-city kids who rob Sam (Whittaker) as she is walking home in a scary South London tower block. She flees when the gang is attacked by a small alien creature which falls from the sky. While Sam and the police hunt for the gang, a second wave of creatures falls. The gang grabs weapons, mount bikes, and set out to defend their turf. But this time, the creatures are much bigger. Savage and bestial, nothing will stand in their way. And the bunch of no-hope kids who just attacked Sam are about to become her only hope.
Attack the Block opens in select cites on June 29th, so keep your eyes peeled for a showing near you.
