Also today, we were treated at a private press event to the premiere of the trailer for The Darkest Hour, a 3-D action thriller about two Americans, played by Emile Hirsch and Max Minghella, who head to Moscow for business, just in time for an alien invasion.

Describing the look of his film as simply “epic,” director Chris Gorak described one sequence that took five days to film, the result being that Red Square looks entirely abandoned. “It was completely worth it.”

“Technically [shooting in 3-D] is a little bit more difficult and it takes a longer time. You have to weigh that against what you get from it,” said The Killing’s Joel Kinnaman, who plays the shady businessman Hirsch and Minghella’s characters meet up with before energy-hungry aliens who can shred humans into dust with only a touch come into the picture.

But “this movie’s also about what sort of choices you make when you’re faced with this kind of threat and the instinctive quality that every human has within him,” Kinnaman added, describing his character’s instincts as “questionable.”

“He’s a soulless, money-hungry bastard who has to come around,” he said.

Funny how alien invasions tend to accelerate that process.
