The Darkest Dawn trailer brings the alien apocalypse to Britain

Survive the end of the world in the first trailer for The Darkest Dawn


We’ve got the exclusive first trailer for upcoming British sci-fi The Darkest Dawn, which takes its found-footage approach to a pretty epic-looking scale as the alien apocalypse strikes and our heroes must get out of the city.

The Darkest Dawn is a big, brash, British sci-fi movie that tells the story of two teenage sisters as Britain descends into an alien apocalypse. Told through the eyes of the younger sister, the film charts the sisters’ descent into a post apocalyptic hell where they must choose between humanity and brutality in the fight for survival. Having lost their family in the initial chaos, the sisters unite with another group of survivors and embark on an odyssey out of a totally devastated London and into the badlands of Britain under alien occupation.”

The film introduces a new generation of YouTube stars, including Bethan Leadley, Cherry Wallis and Stuart Ashen, and is directed by Drew Casson, who co-wrote the film with Jesse Cleverly. Casson and Cleverly previous collaborated on low-budget sci-fi Hungerford, which Casson directed at the age of 19.

The Darkest Dawn will premiere at London Comic Con on 30 October and will be available online 31 October. Keep up with the latest genre news with the latest issue of SciFiNow.
