Remake of the 1951 film of the same name details an extraterrestrial force's curious first contact with Earth.
Remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951). Keanu Reeves features in this big-budget box-office flop remake of the Robert Wise sci-fi classic of the same name, following Klaatu, an alien hailing from a planet far beyond the reaches of our solar system whose Earthly arrival in the name of peace alongside a giant robot is met with fear and skepticism. Caught amidst the ensuing hysteria is Helen Benson, a scientist placed under protective custody by the American government as an emergency measure who attempts to divine Klaatu's intentions as part of a bid to prevent a potentially disastrous end to the ordeal.
