Must Watch: Fun Trailer for Joe Cornish's Sci-Fi 'Attack the Block'
"We need to get off the streets, back in the block!" Ready for even more alien invasion sci-fi comedy? Good. Empire has debuted the official trailer for Joe Cornish's Attack the Block, an indie sci-fi action comedy starring Nick Frost and a whole bunch of British "hoodies." It basically looks like Skyline meets Shaun of the Dead meets Assault on Precinct 13, which actually looks much better than it sounds. The comedy in this is good, it's subtle but perfectly delivered in amusing British style. Though I don't know about these aliens - you'll see what I mean near the end. Check out the Attack the Block trailer and let us know what you think?
Watch the first official trailer for Joe Cornish's Attack the Block:
Follows a gang in South London defending their block from an alien invasion. "Think Assault on Precinct 13 only with monsters and a tower block. Or La Haine crossed with Aliens. It's inner city vs. outer space."
Attack the Block is both written & directed by up-and-coming British filmmaker Joe Cornish, of "The Adam and Joe Show" back in the 90's and other bits of work since then, like co-writing Edgar Wright's Ant-Man script. Attack the Block is set to hit theaters only in the UK in May, but it doesn't have a US distributor yet, so we're not sure when to expect it. In the meantime, you can check out their official webpage or Facebook!
