Must Watch: First Trailer for Sci-Fi 'The Darkest Hour' Invades Online
"They can see us, but we can't see them." Summit has debuted the first official trailer for sci-fi thriller The Darkest Hour, directed by Chris Gorak (Right at Your Door), starring Emile Hirsch, Joel Kinnaman, Olivia Thirlby and Rachael Taylor. We've been teasing the reveal of this trailer with plenty of concept art, but finally get to take a look at this and it looks awesome. It's a fresh twist on alien invasion thrillers, as the extraterrestrials really are electrical forces, and the things they can do with that are just, well, awesome. This has slight a District 9 feel (the weaponry) but I think it looks great, there's never enough original sci-fi!
