The original movie is regarded by many as a superior version, despite the fact that it lacked the special effects. The Day the Earth Stood Still art prints celebrating the 1951 film have a special appeal and would look great in any vintage collection. The Day the Earth Stood Still images are impressive even though they can’t match the visual delight of the modern counterparts and have the uncanny ability of encouraging people to watch the original.
On the other hand, if you think that there is an indissoluble link between the visual effect and the success of a science fiction movie, the 2008 version will appeal to you. The Day the Earth Stood Still posters at FulcrumGallery.com feature Keanu Reeves as Klaatu, but there is also artwork dedicated to the other protagonists in the show. Directed Scott Derrickson, the movie was a treat for the eye and so are The Day the Earth Stood Still prints.
