The Day The Earth Stood Still (12A)

KEANU Reeves takes centre stage in this contemporary remake of the classic 1951 sci-fi about an alien visitor and his indestructible robot who visit Earth.

The stranger, Klaatu, triggers an unprecedented global upheaval as governments and scientists race to unravel the mystery behind his appearance.

In the midst of it all, Helen (Jennifer Connelly) and her young stepson Jacob (Jaden Smith) get caught up in his mission.
