Well, I was skeptical. I loved the first film, and since it’s been a long time since the first film, a near twenty years, yeah, let that sink in for a bit. I was worried that perhaps it would take a different direction, but damn, this actually looks quite dark, bleak and unrelenting. I’m game. Are you? Check out the official trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence below, and let us know your thoughts.
Synopsis: We always knew they were coming back. After ‘Independence Day’ redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.
Independence Day: Resurgence is directed by Roland Emmerich and stars Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward, and Jessie Usher.
Look for the film in theatres this June 24, 2016.
