20th Century Fox has released two clips from Independence Day: Resurgence online, and we’ve got them both right here for you to watch.
Roland Emmerich, arguably the king of the disaster pic (The Day After Tomorrow, 2012), returns at the helm for the follow-up to his ’96 sci-fi blockbuster. “We always knew they’d be back,” reads the tagline, and that about sums up the plot. The aliens have returned; cue the destruction of earth’s landmarks.
As the trailers and the clips below attest, the cheese has been laid on appropriately thick for the sequel, and we can’t wait.
Independence Day: Resurgence, starring Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, and Sela Ward, will open in Australia on June 23 and in the U.S. on June 24.
Synopsis for Independence Day: Resurgence:
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.
