SXSW 2011 is just around the corner, which means that we’re ramping up our coverage on all the cool stuff going on at this year’s festival. As per usual, we’re covering the film side of things, and just a little while ago the trailer below showed up in my inbox, sent in by the guys behind Attack The Block. Haven’t heard of it? You’re going to: this alien invasion comedy’s from the same creative team that produced Shaun of The Dead, and it looks awesome. See for yourselves below, my gentle Examiner readers…
We’re getting super-jazzed about next week’s SXSW Film Festival, and the fact that we’re getting hourly updates from some of the festival’s main players– containing information on all the big films premiering at the festival– is just making the wait even harder. Case in point? The trailer below for Attack The Block, which is A) Joe Cornish’s directorial debut, B) produced by God-amongst-men Edgar Wright, and C) stars Nick Frost, who you should already be familiar with.
You can check out the trailer for Attack The Block by clicking on the video box over there on the left, and you should: this one looks great. What happens when an alien invasion gets c-ck-blocked by a group of British street punks? Hilarity and razor-sharp teeth collide on the streets of…what is this, London? Looks like London, but could be elsewhere. Kinda besides the point, innit? Just watch the damn trailer and revel in the awesomeness, by precious snowflakes.
