20th Century Fox recently released the latest trailer for INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE. If it’s anything like the first trailer released last year, it promises to be an epic symphony of alien proportions thank to disaster porn director, Roland Emmerich!
INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE – Trailer #2
I love how this second movie seems to harp on a strong sense of legacy. 20 years on after the first movie, this alternate history on the world evokes a sense of continuity – how humans have learned to survive after the disaster of 1996 and are now united in their fight against the alien invader’s second coming.
As an Malaysian, seeing recognizable local icons such as scenes of Singapore getting destroyed by the alien invaders and the KLCC Twin Towers raining upon the dockyards of London was pretty awe inspiring (What goes up, must come down)!
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 in INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE.
Directed by Roland Emmerich, INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE strikes on June 24, 2016, starring ID4 alumni Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox and Brent Spiner alongside new cast members Liam Hemsworth, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe and Sela Ward.
