Independence Day 2

Only in theaters. The original Independence Day poster was iconic, with a huge circular ship looming over Manhattan. For the sequel it's not just one city, it's the entire planet. Our friends at Collider have snapped the first photo of Independence Day 2 promo artwork on display at the Licensing Expo in Las Vegas. The convention is for companies to show off brands/products that can be licensed/partnered with other things. It's very early art, but it's it cool to see something out there for this. The new plot description states: "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."

Here's the first Independence Day 2 promo art seen at the Licensing Expo event, as snapped by Collider:

This time Jeff Goldblum is going to use an iWatch to interface with the alien ship and install another virus! Those aliens will never see it coming.

David Diaz on Jun 9, 2015


Thankfully there's free wi-fi on the alien ship....

TheOct8pus on Jun 9, 2015


LOL. Yeah the aliens will be so inundated with spam porn they'll just give up and go home.

David Diaz on Jun 9, 2015


And FB Game Invites! And Pop Ups! That'll drive 'em crazy...

I read a spoiler somewhere that they AirDrop a malicious gif of a sloth in a hammock.

The first was a stupid movie, but with great F/X... is this one less stupid with better F/X?

Who really gives a shit anymore.

Did they just recycle the poster from the first movie and change the title?

Not watching unless they bring back the boyfriend of the girl whose father is the drunk pilot, and the soldier who was misinterpreted as proposing to Will Smith in the locker room. Still some stories to tell there I bet.

OfficialJab on Jun 9, 2015


Yeah I bet the "soldier who was misinterpreted as proposing to Will Smith in the locker room" had a fine memorial service, considering he was blown to pieces. As for the dick boyfriend, it has been presumed that he was abducted by aliens who then did things to him. Sexually.

Look at the alien ship taking an chili-cheese-fries dump all over Erff!!~ Not stoked at all by this lame poster.

DAVIDPD on Jun 9, 2015


I just came here to make sure at least one comment said "erff," a reference heavily used to this day amongst my circle.

borninatrailer on Jun 11, 2015


I'm always excited for moderately made mega-spectacle. Plus, it is coming out on my yeah...will watch.

Chris Groves on Jun 9, 2015


The first one is a classic! It brought us the first time total destruction of a city, much copied the last 15 years . But its question how this will evolve... I think they made it for the money, because everything is said in the first one...

ari smulders on Jun 10, 2015


I came here just for the sh*t smearing comments.

Rock n Rollllll on Jun 10, 2015


Just think how different the first movie would have been if the Aliens used Norten antivirus. Losing because of your IT department? Talk about the geek inheriting the earth!
