Woo. This is pretty cool. Yahoo! Movies has just released a new 5-min. extended international trailer for the sci-fi classic remake The Day The Earth Stood Still starring Keanu Reeves, Jennifer Connelly, and Kathy Bates. I have to say, I wasn’t too excited about this film. The 1951 film was a classic, and I think classic should be left alone. But this trailer looks pretty f-ing cool.

Check it out the trailer and still from the film below the jump. What do you think?
