Director Joe Cornish‘s debut featured film; Attack the Block finally has a US release date and its coming sooner than you think! BoxOfficeMojo is reporting that on July 29th, 2011 Attack the Block will be in limited release thanks to the Screen Gems department of Sony. The film recently had a batch of audience screenings and they were all very positive. A lot of people were wondering how the US would react to the British film about aliens attacking a block in South London.
I had the pleasure of attending one of those screenings and I enjoyed the hell out of it. My review can be found here. The film managed to find that perfect balance of comedy and action. All of the kids in the film were very likable and real and they managed to give some great performances. The action was great, the creatures were very creepy and the film felt very refreshing and bold!
Make sure to check it out if it opens up near you as it will probably end up being one of the better films in release this summer!
Attack the Block stars Luke Treadaway, Jodie Whittaker and Nick Frost. It will be released in limited release on July 29th, 2011. Check out the trailer below if you haven’t already:
