Presenting the end of motion pictures.

Twentieth Century Fox has set Keanu Reeves to star in "The Day the Earth Stood Still," its re-imagining of the 1951 Robert Wise-directed sci-fi classic.
Reeves committed over the weekend to play Klaatu, a humanoid alien who arrives on Earth accompanied by an indestructible, heavily armed robot and a warning to world leaders that their continued aggression will lead to annihilation by species watching from afar.

Its the end of filmed entertainment as we know it. The Robert Wise classic cautionary tale is now going to be fucked up by 30-something suits who "Think" they are actually making a film that people will want to see. After all thats what the numbers say.
Between sipping your Boba through your fat straws and your Coffebean & Tealeaf coffee slurpiees you may want to watch the original film. Make sure you have a friend with you to explain the plot. Oh and the original is in black and white so you may want to keep your iphone on cause its gonna get boring. Fox is run by spreadsheets shuffled by pompus fuckwads that think they are in the entertainment business. Ok Keanu Reeves looks good on paper but when was the last time he actually delivered a good performance. NEVER!

Fuck you Fox for distroying this film and tarnishing the original.

Klaatu Barrada FUCK YOU!

It will probably be four hours long too.

It's a reasonable movie for a remake- a good choice, even- but they're going to fuck it up with "alien" gizmos and bullshit CGI effects.

Next up: look for Carrot Top as Exeter and Steven Segal as Dr. Cal Meachem in "This Island Earth."
