An international trailer for the modern version of 1951 sci-fi thriller, 'The Day the Earth Stood Still', has given quick introduction to Gort in addition to the preview of other fresh footage.
More and more never-before-seen footage from "The Day the Earth Stood Still" have been let out and this time, they come from an international trailer of the sci-fi thriller. Providing another take to the film, the trailer chronicles the moments leading to the destruction of the Earth. It also displays an extended look of Gort and explains what it is capable of.
A contemporary reinvention of its Robert Wise-directed 1951 classic, "Day the Earth Stood Still" tells the story when an alien messenger named Klaatu comes to Earth to warn the leaders. As governments and scientists race to unravel the mystery behind his appearance, a microbiologist and her stepson get caught up in Klaatu's mission and uncover what he means by being a "friend to the Earth".
Using a script written by David Scarpa, the 20th Century Fox team up Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly as Klaatu and Helen Benson respectively for the remake movie. They also put on Kathy Bates, Jon Hamm and Jaden Smith as the supporting cast ensemble. Directed by Scott Derrickson, "Day the Earth Stood Still" is set to hit the U.S. big screen on December 12.
