Upcoming Movies To Watch Out For

By Holly Wood

1) Tropic Thunder: Ben Stiller vehicle where actors find themselves in a real war zone. Robert Downey, Jr plays a black man. August 6, 2008

2) Watchmen: Tale of superheroes with real-life problems. March 6, 2009

3) Star Trek: Examines the early days of James T. Kirt and the crew of the USS Enterprise. May 8, 2009

4) Terminator Salvation: Christian Bale Is future soldier John Conner. May 22, 2009

5) Max Payne: Mark Wahlberg is the cold blooded sharp shooter in this video game adaptation. October 2008

and lastly but not leastly and probably my favorite:

6) The Day the Earth Stood Still: Keanu Reeves as Klaatu in the remake of the 1951 class. December 12, 2008.


The 2008 remake about an alien and his indestructible robot will star (Keanu Reeves) as Klaatu, Jennifer Connelly as Helen Benson, (Jaden Smith) as Jacob, and (Kathy Bates). Gort has not been cast at this time and will most likely be created using FX.The remake of (The Day the Earth Stood Still) will supposedly remain true to the original movie, however there is a chance the remake will more likely remain true to the short story upon which the 1951 movie is based. In either case the alien 'weaponry' seems to have been upgraded. In addition to a city going dark, and a very brief look at the new Gort, the film trailer shows a cloud of black smoke, capable of rapid movement and disintegrating matter on contact.In the 1951 movie, Gort is described as one of a race of robots created by the planets to maintain peace throughout the galaxy. If the 2008 remake follows the short story by (Harry Bates), "Farewell to the Master" upon which the 1951 movie is based, it will be revealed at the end of the movie by Gort himself that he is the master, and not Klaatu.
