The Darkest Hour is a 2012 Hollywood action,horror,science fiction film released on Jan 06, 2012. The film is directed by Chris Gorak, produced by Timur Bekmambetov.

Its an action thriller about American buddies who are hitting on two tourists, when suddenly a blackout hits Moscow, and clouds descend from the sky soaking up all the energy and life on the earth. They struggle to survive against the threat and try to escape from it.

In Moscow, four young people, each with different goals, must work together to survive after an alien race has invaded Earth for power and minerals. The aliens themselves consist of a floating monstrous head, surrounded by four, constantly-revolving, spiny arms, which allow it to fly. However, they are protected by a shield that renders them completely invisible to humans. On top of this, they can vaporize any organic matter they touch, and can manipulate things with a controlled lightning bolt. It is discovered, however, that they are incapable of detecting things without line of sight (in other words, they cannot see through glass), and their invisible shields can be disabled with strong rays of microwave radiation. Being the only people in the world with this information, the four teenagers must find a way to safely get to a Russian military submarine that is rumored to be in the area.
