The last time we got a look at the forthcoming sci-fi flick The Darkest Hour directed by Chris Gorak and produced by Timur Bekmambetov, it came in the form of an explosive comic poster from a full art book debuting later this year, with artistic interpretations of the film's vision of a world lost to an overwhelming and frightening alien force. Now we have a real first look at the film with Emile Hirsch hiding from the deadly alien force invading Moscow. It's not terribly exciting, but we should have some juicy details on the project after it takes stage at Comic-Con on Thursday this week. Otherwise, check out the first look below!
Here's your first look at The Darkest Hour starring Emile Hirsch:
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.
