Alien messenger Klaatu escapes American military facility, while Jacob argues that people should stay and fight in brand new clips from Scott Derrickson's 'The Day the Earth Stood Still'.
Nearly a week to the theatrical release of "The Day the Earth Stood Still", three brand new clips from the sci-fi classic remake have made their way out. Exclusively released by MTV, the snippets highlight on alien messenger Klaatu, microbiologist Helen and her son Jacob.
The first clip displays the scene where Klaatu tells Helen about the reality mankind is facing, claiming that the planet is dying and the only way to save it is by getting rid of human race. The second one portrays how Klaatu escapes an American military facility where he is being interrogated, while the last one presents the scene where Jacob argues to Helen that men should stand up and fight for survival.
Starring Keanu Reeves as Klaatu, Jennifer Connelly as Helen and Jaden Smith as Jacob, "The Day the Earth Stood Still" uses a script written by David Scarpa. Unlike the original movie, the modern version of the 1985 sci-fi movie picks up the theme of man versus nature. Helmed by director Scott Derrickson for the 20th Century Fox, it is set to hit the U.S. big screen on December 12.
