Did You Know?
- The design of GORT is similar to his original portrayal in The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), but GORT is now a biological form, rather than mechanical, as Scott Derrickson considered some extraterrestrial races would develop advanced biological forces, instead of technology.
- The MQ-9 Reaper is powered by a turboprop engine, not the jet engine shown in the film.

No one has posted a user review yet.
What's never explained is why anyone would do such a dumb remake of Robert Wise's 1951 sci-fi classic.
Wall Street Journal
An entertaining rethink of the 1951 classic.
Despite the best efforts of stars Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly, this new Day is tired and corny.
