Official Press Release
Join writer and director of Attack the Block Joe Cornish and members of the cast as he shows you some exclusive footage from this sci-fi action adventure scheduled for nationwide release on 11th May. Attack the Block follows a group of teenagers in South London, desperately trying to protect their block from alien invasion. It’s inner city vs. outer space!
Trainee nurse Sam (Jodie Whittaker) is walking alone through the dark streets of South London when a gang of youths surround her and rob her, but she is saved when something falls from the sky. A meteor impacts with a nearby parked car and Sam flees, just before the gang is attacked by a small alien creature that leaps from the wreckage. The gang chases the creature and kills it, dragging its ghoulish carcass to the top of the block, which they treat as their territory. But the adventure is not over. The alien attacks have only just begun...
Comedian, director, TV and radio presenter Joe Cornish, who along with comedy partner Adam Buxton formed the comedy duo Adam and Joe, and made appearances in Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead will be taking part in this a Q&A with members of Attack the Block cast.
IGN and Attack the Block are working together to create a lounge, where all attendees at Kapow! will be able to enjoy watching exclusive clips and movie trailers from Optimum Releasing.
