It's Easier For Me To Get Closer To Heaven Than Ever Feel Whole Again: The Darkest Hour Trailer

One science fiction movie that's been somewhat flying under the radar is Chris Gorak's The Darkest Hour. It's about a group of Americans traveling in Moscow, partying it up when -- of course -- aliens attack. The aliens themselves are what makes the film interesting. Eschewing giant robots and spaceships and scaly monstrosities, the aliens are invisible, energy-based life forms that disintegrate everything in their path. It opens up some new avenues and creates some interesting visual opportunities, effects-wise.

The cast is solid, including Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby, and Max Minghella. It's set for a Christmas release date, and I'm hoping it lives up to its potential. There's a new trailer out, and while the boom-chicka-boom-chicka techno soundtrack is a little off-putting to some, I actually quite like it. The tone, visuals and atmosphere are all quite impressive. Take a look:
