Take an inner-city slum, an alien invasion and Nick Frost from Shaun of the Dead and Paul. Blend thoroughly. When finished, slice it into two and a half minutes, taking care to leave the foul language intact. Voila! Now serving the red-band trailer for Attack the Block.
After seeing this trailer, we're eagerly looking forward to the film. Part of the reason it looks so appealing is that it crosses genres: Most of the time we see inner-city youth in movies, we tend to see gritty tales of drugs and violence or heartwarming stories that overcome those problems. Now we get to see inner-city youth take on aliens.
Genre-blurring is one of the reasons we're also interested in Cowboys & Aliens. Annoyingly, both Cowboys & Aliens and Attack the Block will be released in the U.S on the same day (July 29, 2011).
