Attack the Block trailer online, calm down everyone
It seems everyone's going mad for the trailer for Attack the Block, a trailer which is okay, has some funny moments and a rather cool idea, is written and directed by Joe Cornish and stars Nick Frost, Jodie Whittaker and Luke Treadaway.
So, it is starting to sound interesting, but I just don't think the trailer is really selling it.
There are some good moments, I do love the whole story idea but it's not one that can support the entire film on its own, there has to be more there, and there are flashes of that in the comedy and the moments that Nick Frost appears, I do hope there's going to be more.
Here's the blurb for Attack the Block, and it does sound good fun.
From the producers of Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World comes Attack the Block, a fast funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters. It turns a London tower block into a fortress under siege, and a weapon wielding teenage thugs into heroes. It's inner city versus outer space.
Here's the trailer, and I'm dying to drop lines like "aliens versus asbos" or "aliens versus neds".
Yeah, I think watching it again, I'm definitely going to see it, and I do hope it turns out to be as strong as everyone is hoping.
