Release Date Set For ATTACK THE BLOCK
Finally, a release date! The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the critically acclaimed sci-fi movie ATTACK THE BLOCK will hit theatres on July 29. The film, which won the 2011 SXSW Audience Award, marks the directorial debut of Joe Cornish and will be distributed by Screen Gems.
The movie centers on a gang of inner-city kids who rob a woman (Jodie Whittaker) while she’s walking home. When the kids are attacked by alien creatures falling from the sky, they become unlikely heroes to save their city from mass destruction.
The release date of July 29 also carries another geek-friendly film – the highly anticipated Cowboys & Aliens. While Attack The Block has had extensive word of mouth, it will certainly be interesting to see how both films shape up where grosses are concerned.
