Klaatu Barada FUCK NO.


Now, I am not a Keanu-hater like so many people are.
He has been in many movies that I have enjoyed.
That is not the problem.
The problem here is that this movie is UNTOUCHABLE.
You do not fuck with The Day The Earth Stood Still.
Especially not with some particle-system nanotech nonsense
and a Precocious Child, WTF.

Four frames of Gort fan service at the end though.

    I haven't even let the preview load, but no fucking way. no one is allowed to fuck with that movie.

    That film is sacrosanct.

    • netik says:

      Okay. Watched the preview. WTF, Keanu, WTF.

      I don't hate him, but this bears zero resemblance to the original film.

      It's OK, they haven't touched the film - they just stole the title and stuck Canoe in it.

      The idea of Keanu in a polygraph is probably the funniest thing about it. His only form of "acting" is the speak-slowly, half-dead, "deep" thing he does: I wonder what his brainwaves look like? Tides?

    I cannot begin to describe how wrong that is.

    1951 trailer, for those who haven't seen it (or the movie):

  4. placeslost says:

    He almost emotes as much feeling as Gort...ok, maybe he doesn't.

  5. jonabbey says:

    You mean Keanu's not playing the emotionless robot in this one?

  6. Four frames of Gort fan service at the end though.

    Maybe not even that, if the Internet buzz is to be believed.

    • jwz says:

      I was not theorizing. There are four frames of Gort at the end of that video.

      • There are four frames of Gort at the end of that video.

        I saw that, but there's a school of thought that the frames may have been cobbled together at the last minute since the script apparently has no Gort character in it.

  7. Couldn't they have just named it something else? c'mon people, its an obvious blockbuster - there's no reason to rip off something else.

    I misread Gort as this.

  13. maxcelcat says:

    What the fuck? They've re-made "The Day The Earth Stood Still"??????

    How DARE! That's freakin' sacrilegious!

    Oh nooooooooooooooooo.... Don't tell me Keanu is in it???? That guy can't act for shit!!!!!!!

  14. artkiver says:

    My capslock key cannot express my distaste for this trailer. And yeah, Gort that you can only see by frame-by-framing trailer = lame. What's with this Jennifer Connelly needing to die to safe the earth? Definitely missing the point of the original film. That or this is just a failing trailer (which it is).

    Also: no theremin either? WTF?

    I wonder if there's ever been a successful petition to change the name of a movie before it's released (compared with shooting extra footage for SoaP or something).
