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 London housing project hoodlums 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 the film that won the Audience Award at the LA Film Festival and the Audience Award for Best European or American feature at the Fantasia International Film Festival, 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.
