The trailer for the alien invasion flick The Darkest Hour has gone online. While we’ve been inundated with alien movies this year, you should know that The Darkest Hour picked up some positive buzz from it’s Comic-Con presentation and the concept art looks pretty neat. The Moscow setting is also a nice change of pace. That’s right, America: other countries sometimes get invaded by aliens too. As for the trailer, it starts out a little too much like “Hey! Another alien invasion movie! I’m sure you’re in no way tired of these!” But once it reveals its concept, that the aliens feed on electricity and that a small band of survivors has to come up with some inventive ways to stay alive, then it gets interesting.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film stars Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby, Max Minghella, and Rachael Taylor. The Darkest Hour opens in 3D on December 23rd.
