Attack The Block Trailer 3 RB

Finally, an Attack The Block trailer that demonstrates exactly how brutally hilarious Joe Cornish's alien action flick is. After watching this red-band spot, I think we all know now who would win in a fight between the block kids and J.J. Abrams' Super 8 teen movie crew.

Here's the synopsis:

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.


Attack the Block is already out in the UK, and hits select theaters in the US on July 29.
