"The Darkest Hour" Drops a Techno Video Posing as a Trailer




    Giudice, a cast member of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," was released from the Danbury Federal Correctional Institution in Connecticut, where she had been serving time since Jan. 5. Lori Bordonaro reports. (Published Wednesday, Dec. 23, 2015)

    Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby and Max Minghella are three of the more talented 26-and-under actors in Hollywood, each having appeared in films that were nominated for Best Picture. And yet, none are big stars, and they tend to lean towards smaller, indie/art-house fare. And so all three have found their way into "The Darkest Hour."

    The film tells the story of a group of Westerners visiting Moscow when an alien invasion falls from the skies, targeting world's biggest cities, forcing the kids to fight for survival. Think "Attack the Block" for upper-middle class American post-grad students.

    A new international trailer has arrived from Fox Singapore (by way of The Playlist), and in the interest appealing to a non-English-speaking audience, there is virtually zero dialogue--heck, there's barely any sound effects, just the thump-thump-thump of a techno beat. It's kinda funny.

    "The Darkest Hour" opens Christmas Day.
