Nothing better to do on election day while waiting for the results to start coming in? How about checking out a few new TV spots from Fox's upcoming The Day the Earth Stood Still. Am I still the only one who really thinks this looks great? I don't have an attachment to the original, but that doesn't matter, because this remake still looks pretty damn awesome. A couple of things to mention from these TV spots - first, the line "your planet?" is quite badass; second, Gort is huge and looks like he's going to tear our planet a new asshole. That intensity combined with the sleek look of this is what makes me so excited for it.

The Day the Earth Stood Still is directed by up-and-coming director Scott Derrickson, of only The Exorcism of Emily Rose previously, with a script written by screenwriter David Scarpa, of only The Last Castle previously. There are a lot of fresh creative minds involved in this project who haven't yet had a lot of experience. The film is a remake of Robert Wise's 1951 sci-fi classic of the same name. Fox is releasing the re-imagined The Day the Earth Stood Still on December 12th later this year.
