12.15.11 by BJSprecher
With the holiday movie season crowded with Oscar hopefuls (War Horse, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close), kids' movies (The Adventures of Tintin, Alvin and the Chipmunks 3) and action-adventure spectacles (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol,
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
), Summit Entertainment wants to make sure that you don't forget about The Darkest Hour, the studio's little 3D alien invasion movie that opens on Christmas Day.
In the last couple of days, Summit has released more than two dozen new still images, several new pieces of concept art and two new preview clips from the Timur Bekmambetov-produced (Wanted, Day Watch) sci-fi thriller that finds Emile Hirsch as an American tourist in Moscow who tries to lead a group of survivors against invisible aliens made up of "electricity and electromagnetism."
You can see more stills here and more concept art here. You can watch both of the new preview clips in the media player below.
The Darkest Hour was directed by Chris Gorak (Right at Your Door). The screenplay was written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), from a story he conceived with Leslie Bohem (Dante's Peak) and M.T. Ahern. The cast includes Olivia Thirlby, Max Minghella, Rachael Taylor and Greg Kinnear.
