2 New Clips From SXSW Alien Invasion Hit 'Attack The Block' Debut

It's been about three weeks since Joe Cornish's alien invasion flick "Attack The Block" debuted at SXSW to rapturous reviews (including our own) and the film is still without a U.S. distribution deal. The film screened last week in L.A. to similarly positive notices, possibly hoping to gain some more traction towards a deal stateside before its May debut in the U.K. If anyone involved with the film is hoping to keep that ball rolling, we think New York might be a great place for another screening. (Hint, hint.) But to tide us over, Empire has just debuted 2 new clips from the film which you can check out below.

“Attack The Block” opens in the U.K. on May 13th and is still without U.S. distribution. We assume that will likely change soon, but who might that be? Our guess is indie studios like Magnet, Magnolia or IFC Films, all of whom have been moving deeper into genre fare.
