With its July 29th limited U.S. release approaching, a red-band trailer for writer/director Joe Cornish’s Attack the Block has landed online with the hopes of spreading the good word. The film garnered a positive response at SXSW earlier this year and Matt called it “great” in his review. To make a long story short, I’m jealous of anyone who has seen it and can only hope that the limited release makes it way to the Midwest so that I can check it out for myself and finally move on with life.
Hit the jump to check out the red-band trailer. For those unaware, the film centers on a street gang of kids who take on a hostile alien invasion. Nick Frost co-stars alongside Jodie Whittaker, John Boyega, and Luke Treadaway, and co-produces the pic alongside Edgar Wright. Click here to check out all of our previous Attack the Block coverage.

Here’s the official synopsis for Attack the Block:
From the producers of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, ATTACK THE BLOCK follows a gang of tough inner-city kids who try to defend their turf against an invasion of savage alien creatures, turning a South London apartment complex into an extraterrestrial warzone.
