I’ve raved about Joe Cornish’s Attack the Block, Scott loved it, Steve’s loved it, and plenty of other online writers have cheered it on as well. And if you don’t like our opinions, the film has picked up accolades at the SXSW and Los Angeles Film Festivals. I’m not sure how much convincing you need to see this film, but for Comic-Con attendees who can’t wait to see this flick, I’ve got some great news. Collider will be giving out 5 pairs of tickets to a special Comic-Con screening of the flick. Additionally, you can click here to register for free passes on a first-come, first serve basis, but our winners will be guaranteed seats. If you do get passes through RSVPing and not directly through us, be sure to show up early as your pass does not guarantee you a seat.
Furthermore, folks at the Comic-Con screening will be treated to a Q&A with Cornish, executive producer Edgar Wright, and star John Boyega. Hit the jump for more details on the screening, the Comic-Con panel for the film, and to find out other sites that are giving away tickets. Attack the Block hits theaters in the US on July 29th.
To get some of our tickets, you need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address and say ATTACK THE BLOCK COMIC-CON SCREENING in the headline. This giveaway will be open until July 17 at noon Pacific Time. Also, only one entry per person. Once the giveaway ends, Steve will look over the entries and randomly pick out some winners. It never hurts to mention why you should win our tickets…
Here’s the press release, which includes details on the screening and other sites that are giving away free tickets:
