Welcome to Earth.
It’s been nearly twenty years since the release of Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day. That’s a long time between drinks but Emmerich certainly doesn’t appear to have lost his fondness for breaking heaps of stuff. In fact, between those drinks of Independence Days, Emmerich has managed to break stuff in 2012 and The Day After Tomorrow.
We didn’t think that we wanted more Independence Day until this morning, but all of a sudden more Independence Day is all we can think about. That’s what we’d say if The Force Awakens wasn’t coming out in a couple of days.
“Twenty years after the events of the first film, the international community recovers and builds up Earth’s defences using technology salvaged from remains of the alien forces. However, the aliens were able to send a distress signal before their final defeat, which results in a new task force of alien ships coming to Earth and threatening the human race once more.“
Independence Day: Resurgence stars Jeff Goldlum, Bill Pullman, Liam Hemworth, Joey King, Vivica A. Fox, Charlotte Gainsbourg and William Fichtner and is set for release in June, 2016.
