The Day The Earth Stood Still 7 Minutes Preview

I admit that the first time I heard about the upcoming “The Day the Earth Stood Still” remake was on the way I was skeptical. But as time has gone on and I’ve read and seen more from the project, I’ve warmed up to it. Now there is a 7 minute preview out that aired on TV the other night and I’ve got to tell ya I’m very impressed by it.

Watching this little preview has turned my interest for The Day The Earth Stood Still into full blown anticipation. Yes I know that’s what trailers and previews are designed to do… all I’m saying is that this one has done its job. Check it out:

  1. Pathetic flick! Hollywood has no idea when a movie should either be remade in its entirety or a directors own stamp given. Perhaps try and see beyond the $$ signs and realise that will be attained anyway and credibility might be attained at the same time!

  2. I never cared for Keanu but i have seen more of his films lately A Scanner darkley comes to mind and seeing this preview i am impressed he takes alot of crap from people but his choices are very interesting and he has good qualities as an actor he may have been a slacker before but he is now taking over for Bruce willis as the go to action guy with edge…

  3. If Fox could pull off any movie at this time (which they hardly have since 2006), The Day the Earth Stood Still could work. Max Payne too, but just maybe for Payne.

  4. I saw the trailer for this when I went to see The Dark Knight. Amidst all the excitement over The Watchmen trailer which aired after it, I think buzz for this movie nearly got buried but I was very intrigued because the trailer was so interesting. Glad to see it’s getting some love!

  5. In the original, Klatuu was just a messenger, letting us know cops were on the beat and we should behave, Gort was the cop. This movie wasn’t even going to have Gort originally, so, that means it’s a remake in name only…

  6. Now how will they ever get a worthwhile live-action Akira–this is a complete ripoff of the ending to that one.

    Watch the anime again (or just the ending) then the trailer…

  7. Why would Fox have You Tube take this down. Its just a TV preview that helps create awareness. Isn’t that why they ran it during there TV show Fringe Sun night. I happen to be in marketing myself and It makes no sense what so ever. The more people who watch this, the more people will pay to see the movie!

  8. Oh yeah, just to help the confusion:

    The original was more of a social commentary on the state of things post World War II. In the original, he didn’t destroy any cities or anything. Merely issued a warning to people. See Klatu’s race was more of a galactic police. So he came down to tell the Earth to stop fucking stuff up. Otherwise they would be destroied.

    This remake is a joke.

  9. Wow! I must say… I’m impressed. Based on the general premise of this remake and on my impression of the teaser trailer, I had planned on skipping this. Now, after seeing this extended trailer, there is absolutely no way in hell I’m going to miss this fucker. Hell, I’ll probably be there opening day now.

    I’ve never been the biggest fan of Keanu, but I’ve never hated him either. He’s been really good in some things and really terrible in others. His role in this film however, does look like it will fit his acting style perfectly.

    Color me excited… what a fucking surprise…

  10. The footage really has the feel of a 1970’s sci fi film which I really like. Philp Kaufman’s 1978 Invasion of the Body Snatchers is one great movies of that decade and this sort of felt like that to me! Some other sites are knocking this, probably because it dosen’t appear fast paced with explosions going off every other minute. I like what I see here!
