Must Watch: First Trailer for 'Independence Day: Resurgence' Arrives
"We always knew they would come back." Damn! This looks epic. 20th Century Fox has unveiled the first full trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence, the long-awaited sequel to the sci-fi hit Independence Day, which hit theaters back in 1996 (if you can believe it - 20 years ago!). Roland Emmerich is back in the director's chair going even bigger and more explosive with this alien invasion sequel. The extraterrestrials that tried to take over the world before are back, and they seem really pissed, bringing a whole new arsenal. Jeff Goldblum, Brent Spiner, Vivica A. Fox and Bill Pullman return, joined by Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe, Charlotte Gainsbourg and others. This looks pretty good, better than I was expecting.
Here's the first full trailer for Roland Emmerich's Independence Day: Resurgence, direct from Fox:
Independence Day 2 is being once again directed by Roland Emmerich. As for returning cast members – Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner and recently confirmed Bill Pullman and Judd Hirsch will all be back as their characters from the first film. William Fichtner and Maika Monroe are new additions. The sequel is supposed to take place 20 years after the events of the first film, which will be real time, almost to the day, from when the original was released. Emmerich is directing again with a script that he co-wrote with Dean Devlin and James Vanderbilt. 20th Century Fox currently has Independence Day: Resurgence scheduled to land in theaters June 24th, 2016 next summer. Looks like this will live up to the original?
