Here’s how quickly things move now: I had two really clever (at least I think so) titles for this post (“Keanu Barada Nikto” and “The Day The Earth Went Whoa”) and a quick Google search shows that both have them have already been taken, several times over. *Sigh.* Oh well, so much for originality.
Anyway, here’s the trailer for the remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still. Keanu Reeves plays Klaatu this time, and he’s here to save Earth (or destroy it) for environmental reasons, not war reasons. Because we’ve got that whole war thing taken care of, apparently. I’m still worried that this is going to lean more towards Independence Day than the original DTESS, but the basic setup is still good and it has Jon Hamm and Jennifer Connolly in it. Oh, and John Cleese is playing a character whose name was an inspiration for something else you might be familiar with.
(Oh, by the way, Happy Independence Day!)
