ShadowandAct have unveiled these five video character profiles for Joe Cornish’s awesome looking alien invasion sci-fi/comedy ‘Attack The Block.’ This south London set film follows a group of teens who protect their estate from an onslaught of invading aliens. The five newcomers who play the hooded heroes are John Boyega, Simon Howard, Franz Drameh, Leeon Jones, and Alex Esmail. Jodie Whittaker, Luke Treadaway and Nick Frost also star. The film is set to hit cinemas May 11th – I’m there!

Attack the Block’ is a fast, funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters. It turns a London housing estate into a sci-fi playground. A tower block into a fortress under siege. And teenage street kids into heroes. It’s inner city versus outer space.
