Day the Earth Stood Still, The (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:
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.
The New Jersey state trooper who tries to arrest Klaatu is armed with a Beretta 92SB.
Most of the U.S. soldiers in the movie use M16A4 assault rifles which have had the removable carry handles left on (instead of removed to attach optics)
Some of the U.S. soldiers in the movie also carry M4A1 Carbine assault rifles fitted with various accessories from the SOPMOD kit.
The NYPD ESU snipers who cover Klaatu's arrival at Central Park are armed with Remington 700PSS sniper rifles with Harris bipods, fluted barrels, and AN/PVS-10 8.5X Day / Night Weapon Sights.
The Browning M2HB heavy machine gun is one of the most commonly-seen weapons in the movie, mounted on many of the Humvees and other U.S. Army vehicles seen throughout the film.
AN/TWQ-1 Avenger Air Defense System
When the US Army converges on the landing site of Klaatu's ship in Central Park, one of the vehicles is an M1097 Heavy Humvee fitted with the AN/TWQ-1 Avenger air defense system armed with twin four-tube FIM-92A Stinger missile launchers and one FN M3P heavy machine gun.
In the news footage of rioting seen on the TV, a riot police officer is armed with a DefTech 1315 which he fires at a group of rioters.
