Box Office Beat: Keanu’s Alien Flick Triumphs

|

Despite unintentionally comedic lines like “If the earth dies, you die, if you die, the earth survives,” this remake of 1951′s The Day The Earth Stood Still ruled the weekend box office. Somehow Keanu Reeves‘ vacant stares and deadpan line delivery continue to bring in the dough. See the clip above, where Keanu the Alien explains to Jennifer Connelly that her species must die to save the world. Not even Will Smith‘s adorable son, Jaden, can save this sci-fi silliness.

1. The Day The Earth Stood Still: $31M

2. Four Christmases: $13.3M

3. Twilight: $8.01M

4. Bolt: $7.51M

5. Australia: $4.29M
