The Darkest Hour 3D


The DARKEST HOUR is the story of five young people who find themselves stranded in Moscow, lead the charge against an alien race who have attacked Earth via our power supply, fights to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack. The 3D thriller highlights the classic beauty of Moscow alongside mind-blowing special effects.

This is the beginning of an invasion of aliens from outer space, intent on plundering the earth for its mineral deposits. There are some genuinely frightening scenes at the beginning, where a Moscow bridge and the city’s ancient, majestic buildings crumble into the ground, and people snared in the electric tentacles of what looks like floating fairy floss are reduced to ashes.

Sean  (Emile Hirsch) and Ben (Max Minghella), board a plane for Moscow where they discover that their software has been stolen by Styler (Joel Kinnaman), a shonky Swedish middleman purporting to be their Russian contact.

The two men console themselves in one of Moscow’s nightclubs, and are just getting to know two young women on holiday, Natalie , Olivia Thirlby and Anne . Rachel Taylor, when the city is plunged into darkness by a power blackout, and eerily beautiful electric ‘jellyfishes’ start falling from the sky.

The 3D thriller highlights the classic beauty of Moscow alongside mind-blowing special effects from the minds of visionary filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov  (who created the nonsensical but stylistically imaginative supernatural epics Night Watch and Day Watch), who produces the film and director Chris Gorak (“Right At Your Door”). “The 3D helps to create these epic stages for an intimate story. The core is the relationship between people, that’s a dramatic spine of the movie, what makes the movie emotional,” says Bekmambetov.

The Darkest Hour 3D opens in theaters nationwide on January 25 from 20th Century Fox to be distributed by Warner Bros.

Starring: Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby, Rachael Taylor, Max Minghella, Joel Kinnaman.
