Seemed like THE DARKEST HOUR came out of nowhere when the trailer hit back in August, and we were surprised to find that despite its tried-and-tested 'alien invasion' premise we were all actually pretty won over by its inventive approach.
Now comes the debut of its striking US theatrical one-sheet, which sidelines the actors (Emile Hirsh, Olivia Thirlby, Max Minghella et al) in favour of some good ol' fashioned destruction. Perfect for its Christmas Day US opening!
Wondering what the hell is going on in that pic? You need to check out the trailer here.
THE DARKEST HOUR is the second film from director Chris Gorak, whose previous attempt to worry us silly was the low budget dirty-bomb thriller RIGHT AT YOUR DOOR. Is this his ticket to the A-List? We'll find out when THE DARKEST HOUR hits the UK on January 13th 2012.
