The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008)

The Day the Earth Stood Still is the 2008 feature film remake of the 1951 science fiction classic of the same name. Keanu Reeves stars in the film as Klaatu, an alien being who has arrived on Earth bearing a message that could affect the entire human race. The film was directed by Scott Derrickson and co-stars Jennifer Connelly, Jaden Smith, and Jon Hamm.

The following weapons were used in the film The Day the Earth Stood Still:


Glock 19

When Klaatu's (Keanu Reeves') ship first arrives in Central Park, the NYPD officers at the scene are armed mostly with Glock 19s.

SIG-Sauer P226

When Klaatu is being interrogated, a U.S. soldier guarding him has a pistol in a thigh holster which appears to be a SIG-Sauer P226, though this is not certain.
