“The Day The Earth Stood Still” Trailer

There’s something just so perfect about the casting of Keanu as the not-entirely-human being in this remake of the 50’s classic. Director Scott Derrickson has never shown any great verve towards anything of an epic nature, but alot of the destruction at the end of this trailer looks kinda awesome. But the whole thing kinda smacks of The War Of The Worlds, with a little bit of Sphere thrown in too.

Also, it would seem that our generations has finally decided upon a new fearful villian. Post-9/11 it was all about the “terrorist next door” thing (and still kinda is), but now, following films like The Happening and The Ruins, it would seem that anti-pollution is the cause of mankind’s downfall. Thanks alot, Al Gore!
