The Day the Earth Stood Still (3 dvd Set) Keanu Reeves, Jennifer Connelly
This set contains the 2008 Movie with Keanu Reeves, the 1951 original movie with Michael Rennie and a digital disc for media players.
2008 version - When an alien spacecraft lands in New York City's Central Park, Dr. Helen Benson and a group of other scientists assemble at a military facility based on instructions from the U.S. Government. The scientists discover that an alien identifying himself as Klaatu is on the ship, and it indicates that it has come to save the planet. However, the government and military view Klaatu as a threat and attempt to interrogate him with intensive methods. Dr. Benson feels that Klaatu has true intentions and helps him escape. Unfortunately, she discovers Klaatu's reason to save the earth and his intentions are indeed a threat to the earth's human race.
1951 version - All of Washington, D.C., is thrown into a panic when an extraterrestrial spacecraft lands near the White House. Out steps Klaatu (Michael Rennie, in a role intended for Claude Rains), a handsome and soft-spoken interplanetary traveler, whose "bodyguard" is Gort (Lock Martin), a huge robot who spews forth laser-like death rays when danger threatens. After being wounded by an overzealous soldier, Klaatu announces that he has a message of the gravest importance for all humankind, which he will deliver only when all the leaders of all nations will agree to meet with him. World politics being what they are in 1951, Klaatu's demands are turned down and he is ordered to remain in the hospital, where his wounds are being tended. Klaatu escapes, taking refuge in a boarding house, where he poses as one "Mr. Carpenter" (one of the film's many parallels between Klaatu and Christ).
