An Explosive New Poster for Alien Invasion Film 'The Darkest Hour'
With the film's winter release just around the corner, the marketing is really heating up for the electrified alien invasion film The Darkest Hour. While the first trailer makes it look a bit like the disappointing sci-fi flick Skyline with just a Russian setting and some lighting-infused aliens, I'm hoping the talents of Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirbly and Max Minghella can really make it work. However, this new poster still make the film look a little cheesy with the artificial looks of shock on fear featured on the cast's faces, along with heavily photoshopped imagery. Anyway, I still have hope this will be a fun winter action flick.
Here's the new poster for The Darkest Hour courtesy of IMP Awards:
Directed by Chris Gorak (Right at Your Door), produced by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and written by Jon Spaihts (Ridley Scott's Prometheus), the film is about five young people who find themselves stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack. Emile Hirsch (Speed Racer) leads the cast including Olivia Thirlby (Juno), Max Minghella (The Social Network), Rachael Taylor (Transformers) and Joel Kinnaman. Summit Entertainment is bringing Chris Gorak's The Darkest Hour to theaters on December 23rd, Christmas weekend, this winter.
