Perhaps in the interests of trying to build up a bit more momentum for the US release, we have had the pleasure of Joe Cornish’s feature debut, Attack the Block, here in the good old UK for a little while now. Further anticipation was fanned by a series of special advance screenings in the US at select cinemas and the film seems to have gone down generally very well and so it should have. You can refresh your memory regarding all we have said about it by clickifying here.

For a debut directorial effort, featuring an inexperienced cast and operating on a budget that would just about cover the cost of a large poster for Transformers 3, it is an exceptionally cinematic and accomplished film and it is to be sincerely hoped that it fares well on that side of the pond.

Those lovely folks at Trailer Addict have got themselves a red band trailer for this tale of inner city tower blocks, disenfranchised youth and razor-toothed aliens and you can enjoy it below, as long as you are old enough. Oh and by the way, NSFW. Allow it.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
