I was starting to wonder what happened to Emile Hirsch after he was amazing in “Into The Wild”, I even thought he was really good in “Alpha Dog” and “Lords of Dogtown” (I never saw “Milk”, and we’ll just leave “Speed Racer” for another time), but he’s back in the sci-fi horror movie “The Darkest Hour”. I believe I posted a few trailers for this flick back when it was making it’s theatrical appearance, but from the looks of it, it didn’t fair too well at the box office. But that doesn’t mean anything, we love a lot of movies that didn’t do well in theaters and now you can own the 3D Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray or DVD of “The Darkest Hour” on April 10, 2012 when it hits store shelves. Check out the brief press release below.
