The re-imagining of Robert Wise's classic 1951 black-and-white sci-fi film, "The Day the Earth Stood Still", is going to tease movie lovers with an extended clip. The exclusive first look at the extended scene will be aired at Fox on Sunday, September 14, starting on 8:00 P.M. ET/PT.
A part of Fox Sunday Night Thrill Ride, the previewing of the clip will be the first to be filling up the two-hour slot. It will be followed by a preview of "24: Redemption", a television movie of "24" set to be broadcast in November. Then, topping the two, Fox will present an encore screening of "Fringe" season premiere ended with an exclusive preview of the first four minutes of the series' second episode.
On other "Earth Stood Still" news, it has been reported that the Scott Derrickson-directed movie will be getting its IMAX release on the same day it hits the conventional theaters across the country on December 12. The simultaneous release report came out right on the heel of Warner Bros.' decision to delay the release of "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" from November 21, 2008 to July 17, 2009.
Focused on the concerns of man against nature rather than man against man like in the original film, "Earth Stood Still" resolves around the humanoid alien which arrivals on Earth triggers a global commotion as governments and scientists race to unravel the mystery behind his appearance. It is written by David Scarpa and put Keanu Reeves, Jennifer Connelly, Jaden Smith, Kathy Bates and others as the stars. Principal photography has been taken in Vancouver.
