Remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still, with Keanu Reeves as the visiting alien Klaatu:
Possible changes I can see from the trailer:
1951: Communist paranoia abounds as a “stranger comes to town”
2008: Al Gore paranoia when Earth becomes a eaten(?) turned into(?) a dustbowl
1951: Klaatu is Jesus – his psuedoname is “Mr Carpenter”
2008: Klaatu is a robot – he barely blinks. Whoa.
1951: Gort is actually in control and runs the show.
2008: Gort is directing and steals the show.
