The second round of US promo screenings for Joe Cornish‘s tremendously entertaining ‘kids versus aliens’ movie Attack the Block took place tonight, and timed accordingly there is also a new red-band trailer for the movie. In the film, a small group of foul-mouthed South London council flat hooligans run afoul of alien beasts that rain from the sky. Made on a smallish budget and with the biggest ‘name’ talent being Nick Frost, Jodie Whittaker and Luke Treadway, the film has to build a good amount of mainstream interest before opening (via Screen Gems) in late July. So check out the red-band action after the break, and get ready to believe. Read More »

Rejoice, Blockheads! After months and months of hearing nothing but positive things about Attack the Block, Joe Cornish‘s alien invasion nostalgia action film, (sounds like something else, no?) Screen Gems is finally releasing it in the United States on July 29. It’ll be a platform release, however, so expect to see it hit screens outside of New York and Los Angeles sometime in August. Thanks to Box Office Mojo for the heads up. And if you’re still hoping to see the film early, there are promo screenings going on in a handful of cities on June 15. Check seat availability here.

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.

I finally got a chance to see the film last month and don’t believe the hype — the movie is actually even better than what you’ve heard. The film hits theatres in the UK this week, but no US release date has yet been announced. I’m guessing Screen Gems is planning a release near Halloween 2011. But you don’t have to wait that long to see it because we have your exclusive ticket to an early sneak preview screening.

To enter to see Attack The Block at one of the 25 on 25 Fan Appreciation Screenings, head over to our exclusive Gofobo page now and enter your information.  That’s 25 cities on May 25th.”A list of screening cities is included after the jump.

Many genre movies fans have been salivating over the buzz generated by Joe Cornish‘s Attack the Block. Reviews out of South by Southwest, where the film had its premiere, were beyond stellar and when Screen Gems picked the film up for U.S. release, it was hard not to smile. Though the U.K. was getting to see the film in May, now U.S. audiences would also get to see this tale of what happens when a group of kids decide to fight invading aliens in South London.

We’ve already shown you a very cool U.K. poster and the first trailer. Now, after the jump, you can see a second, shorter, more action heavy trailer as well as five character vignettes telling us about the film’s heroes. Read More »
