I hate being the victim of overhype, something I’ve been pretty lucky to avoid by creating Bloody Disgusting. But occasionally a film gets by me and I end up catching it after a wave of clips, trailers and serious buzz.
I caught the flick tonight, and it’s for real. Only, it’s not the Holy Grail as many make it out to be. Lower your expectations just a bit and get ready for a really, really, really good time on July 29. You can’t ask for more in the middle of summer movie madness.
Ranting aside, a new red band trailer has found its way online for the flick that follows a gang of South London teenagers defending their housing project home against an alien attack. As preluded, the trailer is its own enemy as it gives away a lot. My recommendation is to avoid EVERYTHING and just GO SEE IT. I can’t wait to hear what you guys think of the flick produced by the dudes behind Shaun of the Dead. They do have a eye for talent…
