The Day The Earth Stood Still: SE

The SF classic The Day The Earth Stood Still debuts Dec 2 as a two-disc DVD and Blu-ray disc, just in time for the 2008 remake starring Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly.

The 1951 classic, helmed by Academy Award-winning director Robert Wise (Star Trek: The Motion Picture, West Side Story), is widely acclaimed as one of the most influential and thought-provoking science-fiction films of all time: An alien emissary lands in Washington D.C., but he refuses to reveal his mission to any single government -- leaving the military, the politicians, and millions of ordinary people to wait in fear. Soon distrust turns to calls for violence. But one young woman and her son soon realize they may be all that stands between the human race and total destruction ...

The two-disc DVD sports a host of "out of this world" bonus features, including commentary by director Wise and Nicolas Meyer, a separate commentary by several film and music historians, an isolated music score, assorted featurettes, trailers, galleries, blueprints, a shooting script, and much more.

The Blu-ray disc includes all of the above, plus two exclusives: "Interactive Thermin: Create Your Own Score," and "Gort Command: Interactive Game."
