Attack the Block script
Synopsis: South London teenagers (John Boyega, Alex Esmail, Leeon Jones) defend their neighborhood from malevolent extraterrestrials.

SAM:

It’s not worth anything...

YOUTH 1

Don’t fuck about!

He pulls something from his pocket. It CLICKS and

FLASHES into view.

A KNIFE.

SAM starts to pull the ring off. It’s tight. She

struggles. The YOUTH steps closer.

YOUTH 1

Wanna get murked innit?

Impatient, he grabs her hand. There’s a small STRUGGLE

between them. SAM shoves him away.

SAM:

Fuck off me!

YOUTH 1 pushes back, throwing her HARD to the ground.

YOUTH 1

(to Sam)

Boy, you’re too brave...

The GANG close around her.

YOUTH 2

Dat ring is heavy, get dat!

YOUTH 4

Quick fam, before the feds come

innit...

YOUTH 1

Fuck the feds man...

SAM pulls off the ring, holds it out.

SAM:

Just take it!

YOUTH 2 snatches it, but the GANG make no move to

leave. SAM begins to panic. She SCREAMS OUT:

SAM:

Help! Somebody help me!!!

At that moment, high above, she sees something that

makes her FREEZE.

A BRILLIANT BALL OF LIGHT. Plummeting through the sky

right behind the gang. A firework???

The GANG are BACKLIT by a powerful, ethereal LIGHT. As

one, they turn and look upwards, then start to RUN.

As they RUN -- BOOM! Whatever it is, it IMPACTS the

roof of the nearest parked car, a silver Volvo S60.

The roof CAVES instantly. The windows EXPLODE OUT! The

GANG are thrown to the tarmac by the SHOCK WAVE.

Silence. SHATTERED GLASS settles. SMOKE billows and

clears from the WRECKED CAR.

SAM sits up, stunned. Looks at the CAR. Looks at the

recovering GANG. Then she stands up and STUMBLE-RUNS

AWAY. We stay with the gang.

YOUTH 3

Oi! She’s duckin’!

YOUTH 5

Fam, she’s ghostin’!

The closest YOUTHS watch her go, but the LEAD YOUTH’S

eyes are on the WRECK.
