CHICAGO, Dec. 4 (UPI) -- Chicago's Navy Pier IMAX Theatre says it will soon be showing an IMAX version of the Hollywood remake of "The Day the Earth Stood Still."

"The Day the Earth Stood Still: The IMAX Experience" is to debut Dec. 12 concurrently with the U.S. release of the film in conventional theaters.

In this contemporary reinvention of the 1951 science-fiction classic, renowned scientist Dr. Helen Benson, played by Jennifer Connelly, finds herself face-to-face with an alien called Klaatu, played by Keanu Reeves, who travels across the universe to warn of an impending global crisis, the Navy Pier IMAX Theatre said in a news release.

The film co-stars Jaden Smith, John Cleese, Jon Hamm and Kathy Bates and is directed by Scott Derrickson, who wrote and directed the thriller "The Exorcism of Emily Rose."
