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.
While traveling in a car with Klaatu, Jacob Benson remarks that his father would have fought the alien visitors. Benson is played by Jaden Smith, whose father notably battled extra-terrestrial invaders in Independence Day (and policed them in the Men in Black franchise).
I told Helen we should kill you.
Klaatu: Yes, I heard that.
Jacob Benson: I didn't mean it though.
Klaatu: You didn't?
Jacob Benson: Well, not *anymore*. So what's going to happen to us?
Klaatu: I was just wondering the same thing.
As the spacecraft lands, its downward thrust causes a park bench to be uprooted and blown across the ground. That kind of pressure would have sent everyone in the area flying across the ground as well, yet only two people are blown over, the rest of them, even the woman who grabs her child as its pushchair is blown away, manage to stay on their feet.
