Trailer Trash: The Darkest Hour

It's time to root through some trailers. What sorts of wonderful things will be alluded to today?

Timur Bekmembetov returns, ready to put his own fresh spin on a storied concept. The Darkest Hour sees a bunch of American tourists trapped in Moscow in the aftermath of a devastating alien invasion. The invaders in question feed off electricity, are invisible to the human eye, and have a cool ability where they instantly disintegrate any life form they touch. Basically, the world is fucked!

The cast looks strong, manned by talented character actors, and Bekmembetov's trademark visual flair looks to be firing on all cylinders. Maybe it will sputter in execution, but for now, this looks like one of the more interesting flicks coming out in the near future.
