U.S. distribution may still elude writer/director Joe Cornish's British sci-fi movie Attack the Block, but excellent online reviews and an ongoing stream of promotional items do not. A trailer was released around the time of the South by Southwest Festival, with a poster was released last month. Now, Empire has released two, new preview clips from the movie.
Produced by Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World writer/director Edgar Wright, Attack the Block follows a group of South London kids who stumble across an alien, kill it, and then have to defend their neighborhood against the aliens who seek revenge. The first clip, First Kill, show the kids' first encounter with the alien, and then in the second clip, Peep Hole, an alien attack once the kids are back in their apartment building.

One of the most-buzzed about films coming out of SXSW was Joe Cornish‘s Attach the Block. The sci-fi/horror/adventure/comedy had an La screening last night and today, Empire unveiled two new clips. Produced by Edgar Wright, the film stars Nick Frost, Jodie Whittaker, John Boyega, Simon Howard, Franz Drameh, and Leeon Jones.
Early rumors suggested that a Us distributor may want to subtitle the film, but as you can see in these first clips, that would be absolutely ridiculous. After seeing this preview, I can’t wait to check out the film. Cornish seems to definitely carry the Wright vibe of mixing thrills and comedy effectively. See the clips below and the trailer here if you have yet to.
Attack the Block is a fast, funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters. »

Actress Margot Kidder shot to worldwide fame as Lois Lane in Superman, Superman II, Superman III, and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, a franchise that thrived as one of the only on-screen comic book adaptations of the time. The actress has consistently worked in both movies and television throughout the years, and one of her more recent projects, Love at First Kill will be released on DVD for the first time February 15.
I recently had the privilege of speaking with Margot Kidder over the phone to discuss this unique thriller, where she stars as Beth, an overbearing, widowed mother who becomes infuriated when her son (Noah Segan) takes notice of the beautiful new neighbor (Lynn Renee) next door.
Here's what she had to say about Love at First Kill and much more. »
