04.04.11 by Ryan
U.S. distribution may still elude writer/director Joe Cornish's British sci-fi movie Attack the Block, but excellent online reviews and an ongoing stream of promotional items do not. A trailer was released around the time of the South by Southwest Festival, with a poster was released last month. Now, Empire has released two, new preview clips from the movie.
Produced by Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World writer/director Edgar Wright, Attack the Block follows a group of South London kids who stumble across an alien, kill it, and then have to defend their neighborhood against the aliens who seek revenge. The first clip, First Kill, show the kids' first encounter with the alien, and then in the second clip, Peep Hole, an alien attack once the kids are back in their apartment building.
Attack the Block opens on May 13 in the U.K. Nick Frost (Paul), Luke Treadaway (Clash of the Titans), and Jodie Whittaker (One Day) co-star.
