Attack the Block Trailer

We've been very excited to catch a glimpse of Joe Cornish's sci-fi indie Attack the Block since it opened to rave reviews (like Jeremy's!) at SXSW and since the first trailer debuted a few months ago. Well, to go along with all the other trailers this week, The Guardian posted a shorter but just-as-awesome new trailer for Attack the Block that is definitely worth watching. The trailer is only 60 secs, but features a badass score by Steven Price, Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe of Basement Jaxx. This is looking better and better with every trailer, hopefully it'll make its way to the US soon enough! If you like sci-fi at all, you've got to see this.

Watch the second 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. It's being distributed by Sony Classics in the US, but we're not sure when to expect it. In the meantime, check out their official webpage or Facebook!
