Vulture's Guide to the Facial Expressions of Keanu Reeves
In honor of the release of The Day the Earth Stood Still today starring Keanu Reeves, NY Magazine's Vulture blog has put together a Complete Field Guide to the Facial Expressions of Keanu Reeves. Yes, this is as amusing as it sounds, as they provide a total of 29 different examples of various iconic Keanu Reeves facial expressions from his 20 years of acting. Not only have they dug up some hilarious photos, but the guide features a little "Kean-u-meter", which "measures Keanu's facial elasticity from zero (The Matrix Revolutions) to ten (Bram Stoker's Dracula)." Keanu Reeves fans and haters alike both need to see this!
Click the photos below to head over to Vulture and walk through their slideshow of Reeves' facial expressions. My personal favorites are "concern" from My Own Private Idaho and "scheming" in Much Ado About Nothing (on the right). Hell, I didn't even know he was in films like Little Buddha and Hardball - did you?! He's got one hell of an extensive filmography that I didn't know about. Check it out:
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 David Scarpa, of only The Last Castle previously. The film is a remake of Robert Wise's 1951 science fiction classic of the same name. Fox is releasing The Day the Earth Stood Still in both IMAX and regular theaters on December 12th - this weekend!
