Check This Out: Motion Poster for 'The Darkest Hour' Invasion Sci-Fi
This upcoming sci-fi doesn't have a tagline yet, but it definitely needs one, as I've got to say something while we're watching some girl being zapped into oblivion by the lightning alien monsters! IGN has unveiled a new "motion poster" for Chris Gorak's The Darkest Hour, the alien invasion sci-fi flick set in Russia starring Emile Hirsch and Olivia Thirlby. The official trailer for this movie debuted a few months ago, so we actually know what it's about and that it involves alien creatures that seem to be made of electricity, which is what this poster plays on. It may look odd at first, but just click on the play button, it will be properly sized.
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.
