After every film festival I attend, there's at least one film I regret not getting around to seeing. For this year's SXSW, it was ATTACK THE BLOCK. Luckily, I won't have to live in regret too long, as Screen Gems recently picked up the film for US distribution sometime this year, with the film invading the UK on May 11.

The film, from writer/director Joe Cornish (the pen behind THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN and ANT-MAN), centers around a group of young ruffians out to protect their South London turf from an alien invasion. Nick Frost stars with Edgar Wright executive producing.

Head on over to The Guardian to check out the Basement Jaxx-scored trailer.
