And stay off the grass!

Le Fungus
In the original, Klaatu's message was, "Stop with the nukes or we'll destroy Earth!" Now it's going to be "stop destroying Earth or we'll destroy you!"

That's pretty much a word-for-word quote from the Keanu Reeves character in the trailer I watched last night.

How nice that the Galactics value a clean planet without scuff marks over sentience.

We could postulate a sinister motive. The Galactics, not being complete dopes, don't want competition. So they send agents to warn off the natives from using technology that could advance their civilization past Type I on the Kardashev Scale.

"Hey, Terren - nice planet ya got there.  Sure be a shame if y'all went extinct, hunh?"
