Emile Hirsch and Olivia Thirlby Gear Up Against Aliens in Exciting New ‘Darkest Hour’ Pics

Close Encounters. ET. Super 8. Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Attack the Block. District 9. All different. All awesome. Movies about alien invasions have a special place in the hearts of so many of us. And with this in mind, we welcome with open arms The Darkest Hour, the upcoming alien invasion starring Emile Hirsch and Olivia Thirlby.

Established art director Chris Gorak brings us The Darkest Hour (this is his second gig directing a feature film), the story of five young adults—Hirsch, Thilby, Rachael Taylor, Joel Kinnaman and Max Minghella—on a quest to defend themselves and their home planet against a survey of vicious aliens, robbing Earth of its power supply in an attempt to overtake the world.

It’s a traditional story, but it is one that has consistently thrilled so many of us since H.G. Wells wrote War of the Worlds. Check out the invigorating images from the film below. The Darkest Hour opens Christmas day.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
