Summit Pushes THE DARKEST HOUR from August to December 23 Release

     April 2, 2011


Summit previously scheduled the 3D The Darkest Hour for August 5, a fairly typical summer release date for a sci-fi thriller.  Per Box Office Mojo, the studio has pushed the film to December 23, a less natural holiday season bow.  On the new date, The Darkest Hour must vie for 3D theaters against The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn; the date also holds The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and We Bought a Zoo.

Emile Hirsch, Olivia Thirlby, Rachel Taylor, Max Minghella, and Joel Kinnaman star as young tourists who find themselves stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack.  Chris Gorak (Right at Your Door) is directing from a script by Jon Spaihts.  Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) is among the producers.
