The trailer for The Day the Earth Stood Still (20th Century Fox, 12.12) with Keanu Reeves (as Klaatu), Jennifer Connelly, Kathy Bates and John Cleese. Directed by Scott Derrickson, written by David Scarpa. I copied the code from some Russian site called Ru Tube. YouTube had it up for a bit before it was pulled. It probably won’t last very long here also. It’s also watchable on this fan site.

Scarpa’s script may, I’m reading, be based more closely on Harry Bates‘ 1940 short story called “Farewell to the Master” than the classic 1951 Robert Wise film with Michael Rennie, Patricia Neal, Billy Gray and Sam Jaffe. Don’t read the Wikipedia synopsis of the short story if you don’t want to know.
