The latest look at Roland Emmerich’s ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ looks like they have a solid global destruction hit on their hands even sans Will Smith. I will cop to being a Smith fan and acknowledge that Independence Day was a huge vehicle for propelling him to movie superstardom after the fresh prince and bad boys. Though he may not need this franchise anymore, it would seem that it no longer needs him. We’ll find out this summer.
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 stars Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, and Sela Ward and will be released on June 24th!
