The Darkest Hour new trailer
There are some very interesting shots during the new trailer for The Darkest Hour, forget for a moment the dance crazed soundtrack that doesn't always fit with the images and look to the images themselves, particularly later in the trailer.
I really wish you could step through these trailers as you can with downloaded ones because there are a few cracking images later on, watch around one minute fourteen seconds to see the alien doing something I can't figure out. Perhaps revealing itself.
The effects look fantastic, that's one thing that's very clear from the trailer, and the potential for the film is pretty big.
Chris Gorak directed the film, you might have seen his very powerful Right at Your Door, and it's produced by Timur Bekmambetov, which could mean a variety of things really. It stars Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby, Max Minghella, Rachael Taylor and Joel Kinnaman, as a group of teenagers caught in Russia during a planet wide invasion of creatures who are out to harvest all the energy from Earth, in whatever form it comes in, usually people.
