Russia is under attack from invisible invaders in the latest trailer for The Darkest Hour, the upcoming action-fest from director Chris Gorak.
Set in Moscow, the films follows a group of American youngsters battling to resist the extra-terrestrial assailants, who appear to have made inroads into New York and London as well.
The new trailer is heavy on the action, with Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby and chums tooling up in order to defend their Eastern cousins. Or as Emile puts it, “we’re gonna fight the hell back.”
Check out the new trailer below…
We have to admit, despite the “America – Fuck Yeah!” subtext, we quite like the look of these energy-sapping aliens. All good thrillers benefit from the presence of an invisible foe, and we can see this one serving up a fair few scares when it arrives in cinemas.
The Darkest Hour will open in the UK on 13 January 2012. That is of course, unless the aliens get here first…
