The Day the Earth Stood Still - Director's Visual Companion

Scott Derrickson shares an exclusive look inside the event movie.

The Day the Earth Stood Still

Starring Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly, director Scott Derrickson's The Day the Earth Stood Still, which opens in cinemas this weekend, is a frenetic and spectacular remake of a 1951 classic about an alien who comes to Earth bent on wiping humanity from the face of the planet before we have a chance to destroy it. Presenting a gallery of stills from the film, Derrickson explains why the time was right to bring the story back to the big screen, why Keanu Reeves makes the perfect alien, and why Jennifer Connelly is mankind's ultimate saviour.
