Two sweet posters for the new The Day The Earth Stood Still remake, due out in December, have made it online. I'm partial to the one featuring Gort, though they're both pretty awesome. Everything I've seen from the movie thus far has been promising, though for some reason I'm still not entirely sold on the film. The teaser trailer was nifty, I'm convinced that director Scott Derrickson's previous film, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, was an underrated gem, and I'm a fan of any film that casts Keanu Reeves as an emotionless alien, since I'm pretty sure that's the only role he can pull off realistically. I guess I'm just feeling that this is another unnecessary remake. Not that we're going to be free of those anytime soon.
Io9 also has posted descriptions of two scenes from the film, which were previewed at Comic Con, along with comments from the cast and crew. Some interesting stuff, including Derrickson describing how the motivation behind the alien invasion being changed from the threat of nuclear war in the original film, to more contemporary environmental issues. http://io9.com/5028795/day-the-earth-stood-still-bigger-ships-more-fighting-total-eco+awareness
