Americans have always seen fighting the aliens as their burden to bear alone. Here to show you how the Brits kick extraterrestrial... "whatever it is that extraterrestrials poop out of", Attack the Block hitting theaters (and theatres) in select cities today.
From the producer who tackled everything from England's ghastly re-animation problem (Shaun of the Dead) to Scott Pilgrim's ghastly "WORLD" problem, Attack the Block pits three members of a London housing project gang against the baddest lifeforms outer-space has to offer. In the process, this hilariously terrifying film shows how the youths so many believe will ultimately destroy civilization actually might just end up saving it, and in far more humorous fashion than a bunch of stodgy old adults whose idea of destroying other-worldly beings generally involves spraying water on them or giving them a computer virus -- and considering their technology is light-years ahead of ours, they can probably handle something we only learned to defend against in 1998.
For a sweet taste of one of the best reviewed movies of the year, watch the video above, and visit AttackTheBlock-Movie.com for tickets and showtimes near your block. Remember -- just like in wars against not-aliens -- Americans are not in this alone.
