Super 8 finally breaks out of its train this weekend, but if you want an indier, Shaun of the Dead-ier take on aliens... it's coming... soon. How soon? Pretty damn soon.

[post-video postid="208132"] The highly anticipated, low budget alien invasion flick Attack the Block hits US theaters in limited release July 29. With solid buzz from SXSW, Edgar Wright as a producer and Nick Frost as a co-star, many are hoping the film will be a sleeper hit. Sony's opening it opposite Cowboys & Aliens, which takes some big, green alien balls. Maybe the cowboys and the street teens will end up working together to fight their common enemy. That'd be nice.

Attack The Block is the directorial debut of Joe Cornish.
