It's about goddamn time...

After making the rounds in the U.K. last month, Joe Cornish's alien-tinged horror-comedy ATTACK THE BLOCK will finally hit U.S. theaters on July 29th. Not that it'll rival the number of theaters played, but I suppose Screen Gems thinks it wise to pit their tale of street thugs vs. aliens up against Jon Favreau's COWBOYS & ALIENS. We shall see it how it pans out...

Starring Nick Frost, Jodie Whittaker, John Boyega, Alex Esmail, Franz Drameh, Leeon Jones, Simon Howard, Luke Treadaway and Jumayn Hunter - ATTACK THE BLOCK is put in motion when:

Trainee nurse Sam is walking home to her flat in a scary South London tower block and gets robbed by a gang of masked, hooded youths. She's saved when the gang are distracted by a bright meteorite, which falls from the sky and hits a nearby parked car. Sam flees, just before the gang are attacked by a small alien creature that leaps from the wreckage. The gang chase the creature and kill it, dragging its ghoulish carcass to the top of the block, which they treat as their territory.

While Sam and the police hunt for the gang, a second wave of meteors falls. Confident of victory against such feeble invaders, the gang grab weapons, mount bikes and mopeds, and set out to defend their turf. But this time the creatures are bigger. Much bigger. Savage, shadowy and bestial, they are hunting their fallen comrade, and nothing will stand in their way. The estate is about to become a battleground! And the bunch of no-hope kids who just attacked Sam are about to become her, and the block's, only hope.

ATTACK THE BLOCK opens July 29th.
