First Trailer: The Day The Earth Stood Still

Ok, ok, fine.

Here's the first trailer to the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still starring Keanu Reeves.

If you don't know, this version puts a Greenpeace spin on the classic film from 1951. Here's a quote from the trailer:

"If you die, Earth survives."

Within the context of the film, I presume Keanu/Klaatu means mankind and not Jennifer Connely, to whom he is saying the line. So there ya go - in the big picture, the Earth is more important than the survival of mankind.

Looks to me like it rips a lot from Close Encounters of the First Kind, but what do I know?

The Day the Earth Stood Still is scheduled to open December 2008.
