The Day the Earth Stood Still hits theaters this December 12th, but we really haven’t heard all that much about it (the teaser poster was only recently released). Well, that’s all about to change as /Film has learned the trailer will be attached to prints of Hancock next week.
“The Day the Earth Stood Still” is 20th Century Fox’s contemporary reinvention of its 1951 classic. Keanu Reeves portrays Klaatu, an alien whose arrival on our planet triggers a global upheaval. As governments and scientists race to unravel the mystery behind the visitor’s appearance, a woman (Jennifer Connelly) and her young stepson get caught up in his mission – and come to understand the ramifications of his being a self-described “friend to the Earth.”
