The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008) - IMDb
Based on a short story by Harry Bates and directed by Robert Wise (), envisions the arrival of a wise and high-minded visitor from the stars named Klaatu (Michael Rennie). With his message of peace, death-and-rebirth story arc and ascent into the heavens, Klaatu is a sci-fi type of Christ — and the movie suggests that, as with Christ, mankind is unable to accept Klaatu on his own terms, and violently rejects both the messenger and the message. (The Christological parallels are ironically weakened by a piously motivated caveat, added at the behest of devoutly Catholic Production Code head Joseph Breen, about resurrection belonging only to the “Almighty Spirit.”)
