PG-13 | | Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller
A remake of the 1951 classic science fiction film about an alien visitor and his giant robot counterpart who visit Earth.
As in the 1951 original, Klaatu was going to travel in a spaceship, but Scott Derrickson wanted the extraterrestrial aspect of the film to be more mysterious, and replaced the ship with a glowing orb.
