Holiday Weekend Box Office: Hollywood In The Red For Christmas Holiday Weekend Box Office: Hollywood In The Red For Christmas

After a slow start for movies opening early on Wednesday, the Christmas holiday rallied a bit into Monday. Overall, box office results were slightly higher than the same four day holiday weekend last year, but that's small consolation for an industry that saw a major ticket sale backslide in 2011.

Yeesh. Does that not look like the worst bit of green screen you’ve seen in a while? And that acting? Oh man. If this is the level of special effects that audiences are going to get in Darkest Hour, who can blame them for paying to see Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol instead? I mean, Tom Cruise outruns a Kremlin fireball, and The Darkest Hour gives us a stunt that looks like something you could do for $10 in a theme park. Terrible.

One way to decompress from the holidays might be to watch a bunch of people who look like models get obliterated by a scary laser-like alien creature. If that sounds like your thing, it looks like The Darkest Hour is going to fit the bill.

I'm tired of the giant, brown CGI monster. While we used to see awesome creature designs like the xenomorphs from Alien or even ET, too many movies these days just have a simple, generic monster design that isn't special in any way (I'm looking right at you, Super 8). Fortunately we do get the occasional reprieve from these monsters, like the monsters in Attack The Block, and next month we'll get a whole new kind of alien...

We're entering into the holiday season here in America. We haven't even crossed the Thanksgiving threshold yet, but some stores are already tossing up tinsel. Radio stations have begun their months-long assault of festive music. Some of us are gradually increasing our alcohol intake in preparation of spending lots of time around our families in the coming months. And then, of course, there are the invisible aliens that are trying to kill us all.

One of the greatest things the sci-fi thriller The Darkest Hour has going for it is the way that the aliens dispose of the human race. As you saw in the trailer, the extraterrestrials are not only made of pure energy, but absorb it as well. This means that when one of the aliens touches you, you disintegrate into nothingness. It's a cool concept and an even cooler effect, making it understandable why Summit Entertainment would use it for the film's first motion poster.

As you'd probably expect from a film produced by the director of Wanted and the Day Watch/Night Watch movies, the visuals seem to be the key here-- the aliens aren't visible to the naked human eye, so have to be identified by electricity and the bizarre effect they have on the humans and animals they kill.

As a fan of Hirsch's I was kind of anxious to see him back on the screen again, and the longer we go without him at the movies the easier it could be to forget him entirely. The film co-stars Olivia Thirlby, another indie-friendly actor who seems to have disappeared lately
