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.
