After two very successful Los Angeles screenings, it's time for ATTACK THE BLOCK to infiltrate a theater near you.
The enthusiasm for Joe Cornish's sensational first film, about a group of inner-city kids fighting off a full-scale alien invasion, has been growing steadily since its debut at last March's SXSW festival in Austin. Predictably, it's gotten to the point where skepticism is beginning to creep in. Genre fans keep asking me "Is it really as good as everyone says it is?" In most cases, I'd caution folks to temper their expectations. With ATTACK THE BLOCK, that isn't necessary. At all. 'Cuz this film is the motherfucking goods, bruv.
Because we're so confident in this film's crowd-pleasing potential, AICN (along with HitFix, Badass Digest, Slashfilm and Collider) has locked down twenty-five theaters in twenty-five cities for a nationwide (and Canada!) sneak preview of this sci-fi/horror instant classic. It all goes down May 25th, and if you're anywhere in the vicinity of the below cities, all you have to do is click this link right this instant to get your tickets! It's first-come/first-serve, so get on it!
Here are the lucky twenty-five cities...
New York City
This is a one-night-only event. Either see it now, or wait until the lovely folks at Screen Gems deigns to deliver this great motion picture to the masses. My advice: allow it.
