Summit Entertainment has released the first official image from the Timur Bekmambetov-produced, Chris Gorak-directed, and Moscow-set alien invasion movie “The Darkest Hour”. The first pic features star Speed Racer himself, Emile Hirsch hiding from, we presume, some alien menace.
THE DARKEST HOUR follows five young people who find themselves stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack. The 3D action-thriller highlights the classic beauty of Moscow alongside mind-blowing special effects from the minds of visionary filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov (WANTED, NIGHT WATCH) and director Chris Gorak.
Hirsch co-stars with Rachael Taylor, Olivia Thirlby, Max Minghella, Joel Kinnaman, Dato Bakhtadze, Yuriy Kutsenko, Artur Smolyaninov, and Nikolay Efremov.
The darkest hour begins December 23, 2011.
