The Darkest Hour. Due for release December 25th. This 3D film is directed by Chris Gorak, starring Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby, Max Minghella, Rachael Taylor & Joel Kinnaman. Plot Summary: five young people find themselves stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of an alien invasion. Already garnering mixed reviews, this film has been criticised for not spending enough time investing in character development, however I’m interested in watching an invasion film set somewhere other than the USA, I love seeing different filmmaker interpretations of aliens, and the special effects on the trailers look good.
