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.
