The Day the Earth Stood Still/Independence Day, DVD DVD


Double bill of big-budget sci-fi spectaculars. 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' (2008) is a remake of the 1951 classic about an alien and a giant robot who visit Earth.

Keanu Reeves stars as Klaatu, the inhabitant of a flying saucer that lands in Washington DC after orbiting Earth.

Along with Gort, his indestructible robot companion, Klaatu sets out to discover all he can about this strange planet and its peculiar inhabitants.

Along the way he meets Helen Benson (Jennifer Connelly) and her son Jacob (Jaden Smith), who become his only real friends and end up saving his life.

Kathy Bates and John Cleese co-star. In 'Independence Day' (1996), when massive spaceships appear, hovering above planet Earth, the world stands in awe and wonder.

This soon turns to terror as the aliens launch an all-out attack, devastating the planet.

The survivors, led by American President Thomas J. Whitmore (Bill Pullman), decide to fight back. The traditional B-movie format was updated for the 1990s, making it one of the biggest box office smashes of all time.

Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum co-star.
