Comic-Con 2011 Exclusive: Gorak, Hirsch on The Darkest Hour


A unique approach to alien invasion genre

On Saturday, Shock Till You Drop was given a first look at Summit Entertainment’s action-thriller The Darkest Hour, produced and conceptualized by Russian filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), directed by Chris Gorak (Right At Your Door) and starring Emile Hirsch, Max Minghella, Rachael Taylor and Olivia Thirlby. (You can read our write-up of the presentation here.)

Later that day, Ed Douglas caught up with Gorak and Emile Hirsch for some one-on-one discussion time to chat about the December 23 release. They talk quite a bit about how the movie differs from all of the other alien invasion movies coming out this year, so check out the two video interviews below.

The Darkest Hour opens on December 23.
