First look at Joe Cornish's Attack the Block

Screenterrier reported back in March on the casting news for Joe Cornish's comedy sci-fi directorial debut Attack the Block including John Boyega, Jodie Whittaker, Alex Esmail, Simon Howard, Franz Drameh, Leeon Jones, Nick Frost, Luke Treadaway, and Jumayn Hunter.

Pictured above is the first still from the feature which is now in post-production. The film's official synopsis:
An attractive young woman (Jodie Whittaker) walks home through dark, dangerous streets in south London. She falls into an ambush. Five ghoulish, hooded youths surround her— they take her mobile, her purse, her engagement ring, but they want more. Just then, a fireball explodes out of the sky and destroys a nearby parked car.

From the wreckage emerges a vicious little alien that the youths hunt down, kill and triumphantly parade back to their block. But their adventure is not over. The night is still young and the attack on the block has only just begun…

Newcomer 17 year old Natasha Jonas from South London (represented by Debi Allen Associates) makes her screen debut as Gloria.
