Day Earth Still teaser

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL

The emotionless extraterrestrial character Klaatu that Keanu Reeves plays in the upcoming sci fi remake THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL really is the perfect vehicle for Reeves' trademark brand of wooden acting. However, from the looks of the first teaser, it's almost as if he's trying to be an emotionless boob. Dude, just do what you do and you're golden! Aside from that, however, the film, which centers on Klaatu's discovery of Earth and his warning of impending doom, looks like a decently atmospheric and earth-destroyingly good time. Click through below to check out the streaming version or CLICK HERE to download the HD version over at Apple Trailers. The Earth stands still on December 12th.

This looks vastly different from the original. I hope it redeems itself.

Teaser is GREAT!

And the FX seems very impressive knowing they have a lot of time until the release date. I didn't get any WOTW vibe (although I like that movie). It sounds intriguing and dark, a nice surprise, I was expecting something less darker. And Keanu... man, Keanu just was made for science fiction roles. The scenes of him being interrogated remember the ones in A Scanner Darkly. Call me impressed, I will put my faith Derrickson actually brings a good new movie out of that.

Yawn

Seriously, I'm so sick of these kinds of movies. Remake or not, just looks fucking boring. War of the Worlds, the Invasion, etc. Give me something original, something with a little flavor, a little imagination!

Teaser looks like shit. Either it's because it's a piece of crap, or because it's badly composed.

When will Keanu stop playing messianic figures?

Looks promising. In the original wasn't there a giant robot?

Also a fan of the original who's not totally against a remake. The underlying message is relevant enough for it to work.

Keanu is 50/50 in my book but I think this is a role that could work for him.

The beam at the end coming from "something" certainly looks like Gort-esque to me. Very curious to see how this all comes togather.

I've always loved the original but, yeah, it could stand to be updated. So, hopefully, this'll be a good, updated remake (like 'The Fly') and not a $#!+, pointless remake (like 'The Hitcher').

And, yeah, I've always enjoyed Reeves and his off-center charisma too (and I usually find him far more consistently entertaining than most Hollywood A-Listers these days).

klaatu, barada, nik *coughs*, i said the 3 words...

gort will make it in, the very end of the trailer shows a single laser beam emanating from...something, when the tree is on fire. this will be a cool remake, of course the ship is different from the original, we have better graphics capabilities and computers now !!

the original ship had some cool "futuristic" things in it, lets hope the new one is crammed with liquid inspiration and chromey goodness.

Wow!

As a huge fan of the original, I was wondering about this remake. However, the previews make it look interesting...

I wonder how the new Gort will look, if he puts in an appearance...

Reeves seems decent.
But woah what are they doing with big dusty cloud/storms taking over stadiums? That was not in the original and neither was a round ball spaceship?

Looks pretty ill. For some reason I thought they'd make Reeves bald.

Definitely didn't blow me away but looks like it could be a decent, entertaining film. Gotta say I'm not a big fan of Reeves though.
