‘Attack the Block’ Red Band Trailer

Attack the Block Red Band Trailer Attack the Block Red Band Trailer

Attack the Block has been one of the most talked about movies of the year and justifiably so. After making a huge splash at the South by Southwest film festival, the U.K. sci-fi flick was quickly picked up by Screen Gems for distribution and now it’s poised to blow audiences minds across the country.

If you haven’t had the pleasure of checking out either of the previous trailers for Attack the Block, you can watch the first trailer here and the second trailer here. If neither of those did the trick for you, we’ve got something even better.

One thing that the previous trailers hinted at was Attack the Block‘s gritty action and no-holds-barred humor. In the newly released red band trailer, we get an even better look at the film and how a bunch of kids from the hood take on an alien invasion force. Check it out below.

Attack the Block has earned nearly unanimously positive critical reviews and represents an impressive accomplishment for writer-director Joe Cornish as well as producer (and genre-mashing master) Edgar Wright.

Selling a sci-fi film in these nerd friendly times is easy, but selling one that takes place in such a unique setting is much more impressive. Big sci-fi movies like Battle: Los Angeles have lots of special effects dollars behind them, but who would have thought that a U.K. housing block would make for such an entertaining battleground for an alien invasion?

Attack the Block has already been released in some theaters. If you’re in a major city, thre odds are good that some theater will be playing it. Still, it’s an indie film and it’s not going to be everywhere. Check your local theater listings to see if it’s coming to you.

  1. Oh this movie looks great. I can’t wait for my eyes to look upon its glory. Let’s just hope it makes it to Houston where, for some odd reason, we don’t get many independent style movies(which is a problem since I want to watch them).

  2. Looks great I just wish they spoke english instead of british

    • I wish you speak adult instead of childish.

      • really speak adult instead of child.it’s spoke like a adult instead of like a child .There is a differences between english and british – english I threw a rock british I frew a rock

    • Are you serious? British people speak English. As do Americans, but if anything it’s them speaking English and us speaking American.

    • That is pretty much spot on how british kids speak.

      “Y’get me” = Do you understand me? (Said after virtually every sentence)
      “Blud” = Brother/mate/buddy
      “Tin’” = Thing


  3. this film is brillian i saw it the day of release at my local cinema, i didnt realise it was being relesed in america aswel! i hope people enjoy it as much as i did, and i hope that ignorant people like JD5DAD can watch the film for what it is and get passed the fact they speak english and not american.

    i highly recomend this film :)

    • Is this “aswel” a real British word?
      J/K :)

    • in england do they throw rocks or frow rocks which is english

      • Ever been south of the Mason-Dixon line?

        Or wandered through any number of inner city ‘hoods?

        My problem is with people who refuse to use punctuation and basic elementary school grammar.

        I hope you make it to Grade 3 next year.

        Well Americans don’t pronounce T’s most of the time.

        English guy: “Could I have a glass of water please?”

        American guy: “A glass of what?”

        English guy: “Water.”

        American guy: “say it again, but slower.”

        English guy: “W A T E R”

        American guy: “Oh you mean “waader”

        English guy: “Yes, sorry. A glass of “Waader” please.”

        No offence intended to any yanks. It’s called culture, and every country has their own, as does the US. Besides, we invented the language and we can pronounce it as badly as we want. It’d be a boring world if we all sounded like we just came out of “High School Musical.” ^-^

  4. Looks brilliant! Original, funny horror. You people that are hating the English accent should grow up. I’m sure some American studio will remake it next year anyway lol.

    • zing!

  5. For being so talked about it feels strange that this is the first time i’ve heard of it. I read this because I like reading about new films, but I don’t get the hype. The concept sounds terribly uninteresting to me. Kids from the hood fighting Aliens? Seriously? So it’s a B movie pretending to be more? Because that’s a B movie plot and I don’t see how anyone could take it seriously. Would there also be positive buzz if it was Super Models band together to stop Aliens?

    Battle for LA may have failed over all, but at least I could take the concept serious.

    The trailer seems bleh just a B movie wanting to act like it’s a serious Scifi film.

    It’s Evil Dead with kids , aliens and pretending it’s a serious film. I don’t like B movies, but I at least tend to respect that they can at least admit what they are rather than trying to be taken serious.

    In two years Toddlers will try to take back the neighborhood from Zombies in a dark gritty serious action drama.

    • A lot of the hype for this film comes from fans of the director. Joe cornish is a very talented and witty person, who also has a deep understanding of this genre and of film and television. He is one of Edgar wright’s writing partners and has a huge fan-base along with his other writing partner Adam Buxton.

      Youtube the adam and joe show to see some of his more silly, but very funny stuff.
