A Youth Gang Faces and Triumphs Over Alien Creatures in this Trailer for Attack the Block

Attack the Block is a sci-fi thriller, which is being released by Optimum Releasing this year. The first territory to see this creatures-gone-wild feature is the United Kingdom, with a May 11th theatrical release. Other territory showings are soon to be announced. The film itself pits a youth gang against a group of alien marauders. This second group crashes lands in East London and here they find an equally aggressive race. Check out the tongue-in-cheek trailer below, from the producers of Shaun of the Dead (James Biddle, Nira Park).

The synopsis for Attack the Block is here:

"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. It’s inner city versus outer space" (Attack).

Release Date: May 11th (United Kingdom Only).

Director/writer: Joe Cornish.

Cast: Nick Frost, Jodie Whittaker, Luke Treadaway, Maggie McCarthy and Danielle Vitalis.
