The Earth Stands Still for 7 Minutes

September 15, 2008

The remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still is headed our way this December, and so far the buzz is good. A seven minute pastiche of several scenes from the movie has been aired on television, and it certainly gives us a good feel for the tone and look of the movie. While I'm still ambivalent about whether Keanu will be able to pull this one off (his performance might have a touch too much Neo in it for me), the movie definitely looks slick. There should be some heavy-duty special effects in this film, and it looks like it's going to have its fair share of creepy moments and cool visuals. Hit the jump to watch the preview.
