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.

The Darkest Hour Marketing Campaign Limps Forward With Lame Viral Video The Darkest Hour Marketing Campaign Limps Forward With Lame Viral Video
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.

Latest Trailer For The Darkest Hour Showcases Destruction And Mayhem Latest Trailer For The Darkest Hour Showcases Destruction And Mayhem
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.

New TV Spot And Stills For Sci-Fi Thriller The Darkest Hour New TV Spot And Stills For Sci-Fi Thriller The Darkest Hour
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...

The Darkest Hour Poster Invites You To Survive The Holidays The Darkest Hour Poster Invites You To Survive The Holidays
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.

Motion Poster For The Darkest Hour Shows Off The Aliens' Awesome Power Motion Poster For The Darkest Hour Shows Off The Aliens' Awesome Power
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.

The Darkest Hour Trailer: Emile Hirsch And Olivia Thirlby Fight Aliens The Darkest Hour Trailer: Emile Hirsch And Olivia Thirlby Fight Aliens
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.

Olivia Thirlby And Emile Hirsch's Alien Thriller Darkest Hour Pushed To December Olivia Thirlby And Emile Hirsch's Alien Thriller Darkest Hour Pushed To December
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
