New Trailer and Character Featurettes for ATTACK THE BLOCK

     April 21, 2011


Joe Cornish’s Attack the Block has been getting tremendous amounts of positive buzz since its premiere at SXSW last month.  Shortly after SXSW, Screen Gems picked up the film for U.S. distribution, but hasn’t yet announced a release date.  In the meantime, the movie is set to open in the UK on May 11th and is ramping up its marketing with a new trailer as well as vignettes on all of the main characters.

Hit the jump to check out the short trailer and the vignettes.  Attack the Block stars Jodie Whittaker, John Boyega, Alex Esmail, Franz Drameh, Leeon Jones, Simon Howard, Luke Treadaway, Jumayn Hunter, and Nick Frost.  Hopefully we’ll have a U.S. release date for the film soon, but there is a fan appreciation screening in L.A. on Tuesday, April 26th.

Trailer originally comes from The Guardian with an embed provided by Movieweb.

Here’s the official synopsis for Attack the Block:

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.
