A simple, but effective new poster for the great ATTACK THE BLOCK
has hit, and it might be the best yet!
Written and directed by Joe Cornish, executive produced by SHAUN OF THE DEAD director Edgar
Wright and co-starring Nick Frost (SHAUN, HOT FUZZ,
upcoming PAUL), the film sees “Sam (Jodie Whittaker) walking home in a scary
South London tower block when she’s robbed by a gang of hooded youths (led by a
great John Boyega). She flees when the gang are 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 grab 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."
I love this movie and I love the poster (which Empire debuted), as the look of the
invading aliens is one of the coolest aspects of a film filled with great,
great stuff. ATTACK THE BLOCK, as I’m sure you’ve heard, is really wonderful
(check out my review). It hits UK cinemas May 11 and has been picked up
for US release by Screen Gems.
