||Action Corner|| Attack the Block

Welcome back to ACTION CORNER!!!  This time around I will be tackling a trailer for a movie from the land of Great Britain.  Attack the Block is a science fiction horror action comedy film from the guys that brought us Rogue PicturesShaun of the Dead, Rogue Pictures’ Hot Fuzz, Universal PicturesScott Pilgrim vs. The World, and Working Title FilmsPaul.  It stars Jodie Whittaker as Sam, John Boyega as Moses, Alex Esmail as Pest, Franz Drameh as Dennis, Leeon Jones as Jerome, Simon Howard as Biggz, Luke Treadaway as Brewis, Jumayn Hunter as Hi-Hatz, and Nick Frost as Ron.  Attack the Block is produced by StudioCanal, Film4, UK Film Council, and Big Talk Productions and is being distributed by Screen Gems.

A new movie from Big Talk Productions???  You know I’m there!!!  Joe Cornish makes his feature film directorial debut with what looks to be a fun alien invasion thrill ride.  This movie premiered this year at SXSW where Sony Pictures Entertainment won the bidding war to distribute the film in the US.  Now I heard complaints from the US distributors that American audiences might not understand the strong South London accents, and that they may even use subtitles when it is released in the United States.  However, Cornish acknowledged this during the SXSW Q and A. When he asked the audience, “Can I ask you guys something? American distributors are nervous about language, the slang: could you understand it?” the audience “shot back a resounding yes.”  I hope my theater gets this movie!!!  I don’t want to have to drive far to see it. 

Attack the Block gets a limited release on July 27, 2011 in 2D!!!
