"THE DARKEST HOUR" Collectible Poster Will Be Unveiled At Wonder Con

Summit Entertainment, New Regency & Oni Press will unveil a special collectible poster at WonderCon 2011 from the upcoming art book for THE DARKEST HOUR, a new film about five young people who find themselves stranded in Moscow, fighting to survive in the wake of a devastating alien attack. The 3D action-thriller highlights the classic beauty of Moscow alongside mind-blowing special effects from the minds of visionary filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov (WANTED, NIGHT WATCH) and director Chris Gorak.


The Darkest Hour is an upcoming 3D science-fiction film directed by Chris Gorak and produced by Timur Bekmambetov. The American-based production depicts an alien invasion in Russia and stars Olivia Thirlby and Emile Hirsch.  The film has a release date scheduled for August 5, 2011

The full art book is set to debut later this year, with stunning artistic interpretations of the film's vision of a world lost to an overwhelming and frightening alien force, featuring work from a diverse roster of comics' hottest creators. The global events are captured in epic detail as the last remnants of humanity struggle for survival in a world that is no longer their own.

The special WonderCon collectible poster (11x17) features an image of destruction at the Taj Mahal, with two soldiers from opposite sides of a centuries-long conflict fighting together as the last men standing against the unseen alien invaders. The limited edition poster, illustrated by Brian Hurtt and colored by Bill Crabtree, the art team behind Oni Press' hit comic book THE SIXTH GUN, will be given away at Oni Press' booth (601) during WonderCon in San Francisco.

Ruben Fleischer To Direct Uncharted

Here we go again... The seemingly poisoned chalice that is the directing assignment on Sony's adaptation of the Uncharted is now likely to end up in the hands of Zombieland's Ruben Fleischer, who has landed at the top of the studio's wishlist.

The Uncharted series, should you be unaware, is a globe-trotting, loot-hunting set of Playstation games, blending Indiana Jones-style adventuring with several parts Tomb Raider and just a dash of National Treasure.

This six-part documentary series examines the $24 million-dollar McDonald’s Monopoly game fraud, chasing the mysterious mastermind behind the scam and the intrepid and dedicated team of FBI agents on his trail.
