I had no idea what to expect from this new thriller The Darkest Hour, but it sure does look like an entertainingly rad movie. Sure, it's going to have some weirdly cheesy moments, but as long as it entertains me then I'm cool with it. I love how the energy just evaporates people.
The story follows a group of American tourists visiting Moscow Russia when an alien invasion occurs. Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild), Olivia Thirlby (Juno, The Wackness), and Max Minghella (The Social Network) star in the film. It was directed by Chris Gorak and produced by Timur Bekmambetov.
The DARKEST HOUR is the story of five young people who find themselves stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack. The 3D thriller highlights the classic beauty of Moscow alongside mind-blowing special effects.
