Let me be the first one to say that Sony Pictures/Screen Gems did NOT do right by Attack The Block, a film I still firmly hold as one of the best films I’ve seen this year. (and perhaps the best film of the summer). Despite great reviews and great audience response, the film never got the kind of solid and wide spread theatrical release it so rightly deserved.
But at least, very soon, all those people around the country who never got a chance to see it will now have their chance, as it’s been announced that the film will be coming out on standard and blu-ray DVD on October 25th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, with a ton of extra features and commentaries.
And now that I’ve gotten a brand spanking new blu-ray player to replace the old crummy one that went kaput on me yesterday, (Never again will I buy anything made by a comany that starts with the letter “J”) I know I’ll be enjoying the film again and again.
