Set 20 years after the original Independence Day, Resurgence sees our alien enemies make an unwelcome return as they return to finish what they started. With 20 years to prepare for their imminent attack, we’re going to be alright, right? Well, as the poster kindly reminds us: they’ve had 20 years to prepare, too. Dammit.
Check out the action-packed trailer below which shows destruction, explosions and even more destruction. Also there’s, a great line from Jeff Goldblum; what goes up, indeed comes back down. Poor London.
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 comes from director Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, Godzilla) and additionally stars Bill Pullman, Joey King, Maika Monroe, Liam Hemsworth, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg and William Fichtner.
Prepare for battle when it hits UK and US cinemas on 24th June.
