The antcipation for this movie has been electric all thanks to our American cousins who got the first look at the movie at SXSW Fest letting the world know we are in for a treat and 2 weeks ago The Peoples Movies had that opportunity to catch the movie too, our review will be up at the weekend/Monday. Thankfully There is a American distributor in the shape of Screen Gems so the rest of USA can finally get to see the flick too but for now this next Wednesday is invasion day Inner City Vs OutSpace!
Empire have gotten there hands on a new second poster for the movie which shows the poster has some bite to it as it shows the aliens have a ferocious side to them, though they havent met the South London massive yet! boy! Any eagle eyed movie fans may recognise this poster as its been parading itself on many bus shelters in cities and towns around the country. Below the poster is a new 30 second tv spot, I dont know where its came from but check it out as theres a few new snippets of footage in there too!
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. It¹s inner city versus outer space.
Trainee nurse Sam is walking home to her flat in a scary South London tower block when she¹s robbed by a gang of masked, hooded youths. She¹s saved when the gang are distracted by a bright meteorite, which falls from the sky and hits a nearby parked car. Sam flees, just before the gang are attacked by a small alien creature that leaps from the wreckage. The gang chase the creature and kill it, dragging its ghoulish carcass to the top of the block, which they treat as their territory. While Sam and the police hunt for the gang, a second wave of meteors fall. Confident of victory against such feeble invaders, the gang grab weapons, mount bikes and mopeds, and set out to defend their turf. But this time, the creatures are bigger. Much bigger. Savage, shadowy and bestial, they are hunting their fallen comrade and nothing will stand in their way. The estate is about to become a battleground. And the bunch of no-hope kids who just attacked Sam are about to become her, and the block¹s, only hope.
