Die Biologiewissenschaftlerin Helen Barnes wird von der US-Regierung in streng geheimer Sache konsultiert. Unbekannte Flugobjekte haben die Erde erreicht und die Absicht der außerirdischen Gäste ist noch unklar. Als Abgesandter der unbekannten Rasse aus dem Weltraum erscheint der unterkühlte Klaatu - dieser soll über das Schicksal der Menschheit entscheiden, die durch ihren zerstörerischen Charakter eine Gefahr für ihren fruchtbaren Heimatplaneten darstellt. Da eine Gefährdung aller Arten des Planeten durch eine einzige Spezies nicht länger zu erdulden ist, wird die Auslöschung der Menschen in die Wege geleitet.

L'arrivée sur Terre de Klaatu, un extraterrestre d'apparence humaine, provoque de spectaculaires bouleversements. Tandis que les gouvernements et les scientifiques tentent désespérément de percer son mystère, une femme, le docteur Helen Benson, parvient à nouer un contact avec lui et à comprendre le sens de sa mission. Klaatu est là pour sauver la Terre... avec ou sans les humains.

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Ultimatum alla terra

Una smisurata e misteriosa sfera luminosa atterra tra gli alberi di Central Park e sotto gli occhi meravigliati dei newyorkesi. L'alieno che la abita e ne discende viene accolto da una pallottola di benvenuto, esplosa da un militare nervoso ed emotivo. Ricoverato d'urgenza e guarito con prodigiosa rapidità, l'alieno rivela sembianze umane e nome sotto una pellicola gelatinosa: è Klaatu, una creatura astrale precipitata dall'universo per avvertire l'umanità di un'imminente crisi globale. Dopo aver chiesto senza successo alla Segretaria di Stato degli USA di organizzare una riunione internazionale per comunicare al mondo il suo messaggio, Klaatu elude la sorveglianza governativa, deciso a dare una dimostrazione di forza convincente con l'aiuto di Gort, il suo gigantesco automa. Sarà l'amore di una mamma, la scienziata Helen Benson, a farlo desistere dall'impresa, concedendo agli uomini il beneficio del dubbio e la possibilità del riscatto.
