The Day The Earth Stood Still Teaser Trailer And Photo Of Gort (Post Updated On 7/09/08)

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. This isn't your Mom and Dad's Science Fiction movie. Hope the special effects and update don't destroy the meaning that came with the original classic. This trailer does look cool though.

And here is a little taste of the original film, courtesy of

In this scene, Klaatu knows if he is killed, Gort will destroy the world, so he tells Helen the words that will keep that from happening.

And in this scene, Gort Attacks.
And for those curious about what Gort will look like in the remake, take a look at this still captured from the trailer. Also, Director Scott Derrickson has clearly indicated that the Gort we'll see in the remake was, ultimately, significantly informed by the design of the original robot...evidenced by this glimpse of the robot from the trailer.
