DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL Footage Reveals Disappointing Gort

Twentieth Century Fox has released some more footage, what they’re calling an extended trailer, from their upcoming remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still. The first half seems to expand upon the premise of the film for those unfamiliar with Robert Wise’s 195- original film, while the second half seems to pimp some of the action and effects sequences to try and convince people that the film isn’t as dry as the first half of the trailer makes it. We also get our first good look at the film’s version of Gort, one of sci-fi cinema’s first iconic robots. Unfortunately, this new look, while recalling the original’s design, looks like a man in a rubber wet suit. Not very impressive. Needless to say, there’s nothing here that dispells the lack of confidence I have in this film.

He looks kind of like Amazo from the Justice League cartoon.
