We have been approached from a PR group with free tickets for an English horror/SF/humor movie coming up. This is an excerpt from what I've recieved:
ATTACK THE BLOCK
In Washington, DC-area theaters August 19
ATTACK THE BLOCK is a fast, funny, frightening action adventure
movie that pits a teen gang against an invasion of savage alien
monsters. It turns a London housing estate into a sci-fi
playground. A tower block into a fortress under siege. And
teenage street kids into heroes. It’s inner city versus outer
Trainee nurse Sam is walking home to her flat in a scary South
London tower block when she’s 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 fall. 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 stars Jodie Whittaker, John Boyega, Alex
Esmail, Franz Drameh, Leeon Jones, Simon Howard, Luke
Treadaway, Jumayn Hunter, and Nick Frost.
Running time: 90 min
