Seemingly out of nowhere, FOX has released the first trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence, which stirs up very strong feelings of nostalgia.
The second Independence Day movie follows in the footsteps of the 1996 original, featuring a very similar premise. The aliens are back for round 2, bringing along even bigger and better weapons to take the earth over with.
See what the fuss is all about…
Being more of the same isn’t necessarily a bad thing, right? After all, if ever there was a director who knows a thing or two about making an engaging disaster film, Roland Emmerich is likely him, no?
Independence Day: Resurgence seems to have a darker setting than its predecessor and may not have as much humor as a result. Even so, getting to watch Emmerich blow Earth once again should nevertheless make for a good time at the theatre.
It is set to release on June 24, 2016 and sees the return of Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox and Brent Spiner, but not Will Smith.
Will it be an Independence Day movie without Will Smith?
