Summit Entertainment, New Regency and Oni Press have announced they are debuting a collectible poster at WonderCon this weekend in San Francisco for The Darkest Hour, coming to 3D and 2D theaters on August 5th.

The full press release follows:
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 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 (11×17) 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.
