The Day the Earth...Burned Up

Keanu Reeves prepares to slurp the kool-aid with thirsty abandon. Thanks to Noel.

Klaatu To Warn Us About.... Global Warming? - Screen Rant:

I don't know how familiar you are with the original (and classic) version of The Day the Earth Stood Still, but it was borne out of fears of the Atomic Age and the initial stirrings of the Cold War. Today it may seem quaint and dated but at the time it was a very relevant theme to be tackled from a sci-fi angle.

Over at they've quoted Keanu Reeves in an interview and while he admits that yes, there is a huge threat posed by the staggering number of international conflicts...

"The version [of 'The Day the Earth Stood Still'] I was just working on, instead of being man against man, it’s more about man against nature. My Klaatu says that if the Earth dies, you die. If you die, the earth survives. I’m a friend to the earth."

Ok, all together now: Awwwwwwwwwww.....
