Oh, how quickly a night at the Moscow nightclub can devolve into a life or death alien situation. One minute, you’re posing for pictures with your friends as house music grinds behind you and the next, you’re on your back shooting flames into the air and yelling Rambo -style at invisible invaders who have come to Earth to steal your electricity and destroy your golden retrievers. (Or something.) It’s a tough battle, but you, as an American twentysomething tourist, are somehow most equipped to fight it. At least that is the story of Emile Hirsch’s character in Chris Gorak’s The Darkest Hour . Let’s view the trailer for this 3-D sci-fi flick ahead.
Two and a half years ago, Universal announced that Clue was getting a big-screen revamp in the form of a global caper directed by Gore Verbinski. Well, most of that information remains true: Clue , Gore Verbinski, and globetrotting are all part of the picture, but Universal has dropped the property in favor of its other board game-based projects like Candy Land , Battleship , Ouija , and the Taylor Lautner-attached Stretch Armstrong . Now, here’s what makes Clue different than other board games — at least in my eyes: It rules , and those properties don’t. In order to protect the valor of Clue , Movieline is offering three ways for the film to retain the sinister cool of its original film and game(s). Frankly, Miss Scarlet, we give a damn.
