Attack the Block

Postby DaveC » Thu Mar 03, 2011 2:35 pm

Watch the trailer for Attack the Block!

A gang of hoodies defend their estate when there is an alien invasion. It's like Kidulthood meets Skyline/Battle: LA.

I've been looking forward to this for a while now, it's directed by Joe Cornish and executively proudced by Edgar Wright( :D )!

I had the teaser poster for this as my desktop wallpaper about a year ago, glad it's out soon!

I actually liked the fact that they didn't.

When I first heard about the film I knew I'd have to watch it - I'm a long time listener to the Adam & Joe show. :mrgreen:
I was determined not to just like it because of the director and had a nice positive surprise when it turned out that I truly enjoyed the film.
