Attack the Block will hit theaters on July 29 through Screen GemsAttack the Block, which has been riding a wave of buzz ever since its debut at the South by Southwest Film Festival earlier in the year, will be released in North American theaters on July 29. We reported back in April that Screen Gems acquired the distribution rights to Attack the Block.

Attack the Block will receive some stiff competition for box office dollars that weekend, with three wide releases and several other indie platform releases already slated. Cowboys & Aliens, Crazy Stupid Love, and The Smurfs will all receive a wide release on July 29. Limited releases include The Devil's Double, The Guard, Good Neighbours, and the documentary Life in a Day.

The July 29 weekend is now shaping one to be one of the most crowded weekends all summer (or all year) at the box office.

Joe Cornish makes his directorial debut with Attack the Block, which centers on a rough-and-tumble group of London street kids who have to fend off an alien onslaught.

Attack the Block was released July 29th, 2011.
