Take a longer look into 'The Day the Earth Stood Still', the remake of the 1951 classic sci-fi thriller, through a longer promotional video.
A new trailer of "The Day the Earth Stood Still" has arrived. Around three minutes longer than the first trailer, this brand new 5-minute trailer contains many similar footage to the extended seven minute clip aired on FOX on Sunday, September 14, but still manages to offer some never-before-seen footage from the movie.
When an alien's arrival to Earth triggers a global upheaval, governments and scientists race to unravel the mystery behind the visitor's appearance. In their effort to seek the truth, the government brings in Helen Benson, a microbiologist who works at Princeton University, to investigate the alien who goes by the name of Klaatu. Though the government sees Klaatu as a threat to Earth, Helen and her stepson come to an understanding that Klaatu is actually a "friend to the Earth".
Remaking the Robert Wise-directed movie of the same name, "Day the Earth Stood Still" tackles a different theme than the original. While Wise's version opposes man against man idea, this Derrickson's project focuses on the concerns of man against nature. Using a script written by David Scarpa, the 20th Century Fox team up Keanu Reeves, Jennifer Connelly, Kathy Bates, Jon Hamm and Jaden Smith as the cast ensemble for the movie slated for December 12 release in the U.S.
