This may be a little trickier.

This was the first film in which this character appeared. Since its initial appearance, this character appeared in a recognisable form in other films and television series. The character is not human.

Nope. Although I admit that would actually fit.

To elaborate, the character is not actually alive either, nor is the film named after them.

I thought that the film was supposed to be named after the character, as you said "this film" and "this character." So that should be "a character."

On re-reading it I can see how it could cause confusion.

I imagine there are quite a lot that could be covered by that.

Yes, it's a little vague.

Okay, some other clues.

This character appeared in a couple of episodes of a series in which a rather similar character was known for warnings someone called Will about danger.

In the original film, they were an ancillary character but a popular one.

The film is in black & white.

No, but the character is a robot.

It was associated with the survivor of a previous expedition.

I think it's difficult to do clues for such films without either making it very cryptic or really obvious - to anyone who has seen the film anyway.

So, 24 hours later, not even one guess.

Here are few hints, then:

The movie contains elements of genealogy, allergy treatments, a false humanitarian rescue mission, and spectacular downhill chases accompanied by some of the most awesome film music ever created.

On the hottest day of the year, tensions flare between a local business owner and the residents of the neighborhood they serve. It doesn't end well.
