The Darkest Hour Preparing to Shine on DVD and Blu-ray

Post Thumb:


A 3D movie about invisible aliens? How could that have not been a runaway blockbuster? Not to worry if you didn’t see Speed Racer fight invisible energy aliens with light bulbs on the big screen this past December because The Darkest Hour (review here) will be on DVD, Blu-ray, and Blu-ray 3D this April.

The Timur Bekmambetov produced, Chris Gorack directed alien invasion flick starring Emilie Hirsch, Max Minghella, and Olivia Thirlby as American douchebags struggling to stay alive in Moscow after invisible aliens show up and begin disintegrating everyone didn’t exactly light up the box office the same way the aliens light up anything with a light bulb when it opened in theaters Christmas Day of last year. Nor was it a critical hit what with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 6 fresh, 44 negative. I know I wasn’t amongst the fresh crowd.

Summit Entertainment has just announced its intention to release The Darkest Hour on DVD, Blu-ray, and Blu-ray 3D come April 10th. No disc artwork has been released yet (one has to assume the “SURVIVE THE HOLIDAYS” poster art will not be recycled) nor any word on what, if any, extras will be included on the various discs. We’ll bring you that news when it’s made available.

    I had such high hopes for Husk (im a sucker for scarecrows), I felt it needed alot more atmosphere injected into it not to mention THE “SCARECROWS” ARE KILLED BY JUST TAKING OFF THEIR MASKS!!! are you fucking kidding me!!!! StakeLand and Don’t be afraid of the dark were “now this is awesome, now its boring shit, oh now its awesome again, oh now its boring shit” over and over and over again, not to mention you don’t really care for any of the characters in either film. and Lastly Chromeskull . . . sigh . . . quite a few horror reviewers really REALLY over-hyped the movie for me, and I was ultimately disappointed. I won’t name the horror reviewer who over-hyped it for me . . . . . creepy

    Golden Simatar, that wasn’t the biggest disappointments for me, didn’t even bother seeing it, Invisible Aliens c’mon, my biggest Disappointments of 2011 was Husk,Chromeskull,StakeLand and Don’t be Afraid of the Dark . . . sigh I had such hopes for those films 🙁

      I thought Husk was fun. I liked Stakeland. Don’t Be Afraid of the dark was lame though.

    One of the biggest disappointments of last year. I didn’t find it overly bad, just very average. Had a cool premise but failed to deliver anything more than basic.
