Battling invading aliens might actually have been less difficult than being a part of The Darkest Hour film shoot. The 3D sci-fi action film was the victim of bad timing when the production had to be shut down for a while as devastating fires raged in Moscow, coating the city and the surrounding area in smoke and ashes, and ultimately making it too dangerous to continue shooting the film.

The fires were eventually brought under control and work on The Darkest Hour was completed, but not without some footage ruined do to smoke showing up in scenes. And in our exclusive interview with two of the film’s stars – Max Minghella and Joel Kinnaman – we find out what it was like to actually be on the set while Russia was burning, working on a 3D project, and the appeal of an alien invasion film.

Exclusive Max Minghella and Joel Kinnaman The Darkest Hour Interview

What are the challenges of working on a film in which so much CG work is done after the fact and you aren’t acting opposite anything?
Joel Kinnaman: “It’s the power of imagination. I don’t think there have been many alien movies where the actors have actually seen the aliens.” [laughing]

Max Minghella: “That was a good answer.”

Joel Kinnaman: “Being an actor in movies is a lot about the power of your imagination and making the circumstance real to you so the audience will feel that it’s real.”

Max Minghella: “It would be really nice for us to pretend it’s a very difficult thing, a really complicated challenge, but the reality is it’s actually not very different than shooting a movie normally. Even when you’re doing a scene about two people are talking in a room, so many of the elements are invented that the nature of how it’s put together is so much imagination. [Laughing] We like to pretend that we are more accomplished than we are. It’s not so different.”
