It’s been 20 years since aliens tried to take over the world in the highly popular movie Independence Day. Now, Independence Day 2, dubbed Independence Day: Resurgence, has its very first trailer.
Will Smith won’t be back, but Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox and Bill Pullman, Jesse Usher and Maika Monroe will be reprising their 1996 roles. Liam Hemsworth, Brent Spiner and Charlotte Gainsbourg are also part of the new cast.
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.
The movie is directed by Roland Emmerich and is set to hit cinemas in June 2016.
