Since the film’s premiere at the 2011 SXSW Film Festival, you’ve been hearing some incredible hype for the Edgar Wright-produced Joe Cornish-directed sci-fi action film Attack the Block.
Inner City vs. Outer Space. About a teen gang in South London defending their block from an alien invasion.
Don’t believe the hype — the movie is actually even better than what you’ve heard. In May, we gave readers tickets to screenings in 25 cities. One of those cities was not Los Angeles. Well… LA readers, now is your chance: We have your exclusive ticket to an early sneak preview screening on July 4th. And guess what, there wil be free popcorn and soda.
To enter to see Attack The Block in Los Angeles, head over to our exclusive Gofobo page now and enter your information. More information after the jump.
At 6pm PST in Los Angeles, CA we will screen for the hardcore fans (and those who just choose to stay in town) — Free admission (which includes a popcorn/soda). But you need a ticket to attend. Apply on the Gofobo page, and arrive early to guarantee admission.

And it’s early enough so you can go watch the fireworks after – “Fireworks go up before the come down. Dem tings is straight coming down!”
