Actor Keanu Reeves recently let slip some new details on an update to the classic 1951 science fiction film he’s working on called The Day the Earth Stood Still. The original black-and-white movie addressed issues of violence, politics, and the fear of global annihilation from nuclear weapons. In the 2008 version, global warming and climate change are now the forces we should be wary of. From the article,

“’The first one was borne out of the cold war and nuclear détente. Klaatu came and was saying cease and desist with your violence. If you can’t do it yourselves we’re going to do it. That was the film of that day, Reeves explained. ‘The version I was just working on, instead of being man against man, it’s more about man against nature. My Klaatu says that if the Earth dies, you die. If you die, the earth survives. I’m a friend to the earth. While humanity still engages in a staggering number of international conflicts, the environmental message is one that, not only encompasses wars, and fights, and terrorism, but one that goes beyond constrictions to become a millennial message of ‘what we are doing and who we are as a species,’ Reeves insisted. ‘We’re trying to reach beyond the idea of [just] environmentalism.’”

The film will also star Jennifer Connelly and one really large robot. What do you think? Awesome or blah?

Please stop attempting to express love through animal exploitation

While I’m a huge sucker for the sweet stuff, I can’t escape the seasonal dread of seeing lovers carelessly link up gestures of romance with animal exploitation.
