Emile Hirsch Battles Invisible Aliens In ‘The Darkest Hour’ Trailer

Well, this one’s interesting. It’s the first trailer for Chris Gorak’s The Darkest Hour and it finds a clever way to not make the attacking aliens the same cliche insectoid design that we’ve seen so much of in recent years. It does so by not showing them at all. They are invisible aliens. Kind of like ghosts but with an organized agenda.

And though it’s just Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby, Rachael Taylor, Max Minghella, and Joel Kinnaman literally running away from nothing, it still looks pretty good. Definitely like the way that the aliens disintegrate their victims by pulling them into their force-fields. We’ve been discussing it here at Screen Junkies HQ and it doesn’t seem like a bad way to go. Way better than drowning.
