ATTACK THE BLOCK Double Pass Giveaway!

Acclaimed UK writer/actor/comedian Joe Cornish (THE ADAM AND JOE SHOW, THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN, THE ASTONISHING ANT MAN) makes his directorial debut with ATTACK THE BLOCK - a fast, funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters.  Featuring a talented young cast led by Nick Frost (SHAUN OF THE DEAD, HOT FUZZ, THE BOAT THAT ROCKED), ATTACK THE BLOCK depicts a London housing estate transformed 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 space.

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.

  1. Well I live in an apartment buiding, so I'd track down the security/building manager & take his Master keys, or if I can't find him I'd break into their office to access the keysafe, which is always never locked. Trust me on that.

    Once I have those, I'd lock down the 3 lifts on alternate floors with some of the fire-doors taped unlocked non-visibly, to give me an edge over getting up to the floors as I'm the only one who knows the layout. There are 2 sets of security doors at the front w/intercom, & camera system so it's pretty easy to see what is coming.

    There'll be plenty of home-made defense weapons like hammers easily accessible in each apartment, there's... 126 apts. in here if my maths is correct, so plenty of non-perishible food to survive on for a few weeks at least as well. There's got to be a bunck of styrofoam lying around, so there's a little home-made napalm for you. Oh & plenty of cars in the carpark, so if Die Hard 4.0 learned me anything besides not to touch franchises that are fine as they are, it's that cars are just really big, convenient 1 shot cannonballs.

    Oh, & if possible, I'd place my life-size cut-out of David Duchovny in the lobby. Just standing there, smiling. Maybe the aliens will get confused & think they're on the set of the X-Files or something.

    Once things have died down a little, I'd round up a posse & we'd make a dash for the Bunnings 3.4 km away... then WE GO ON THE OFFENSIVE!

  2. During the day, my neighbourhood is surrounded by schools with loud ringing bells and loud screaming kids. At night its surrounded by nightclubs and cafes with noisy revellers and lots of empty bottles.
    Both are normally the bane of my life, but for an alien invasion nothing could be better. No alien stands a chance from either group!
