New Independence Day: Resurgence Promo Wants You to Help Defend the Earth

United We Survive!


The upcoming sci-fi action sequel Independence Day: Resurgence has adopted a more interesting promotional campaign than just the usual trailers and TV spots. Last week, we had a fake documentary about the apocalyptic events of 1996, and the latest promo focuses on the ESD (Earth Space Defense.) Check it out below:

For more information on the ESD, check out their official website--which is actually part of the US Army's real recruitment site.

Independence Day: Resurgence is the follow-up to the 1996 blockbuster. Stars Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, and Bill Pulman are all returning, together with director Roland Emmerich.

In a recent interview with Fandango, Goldblum hinted that Resurgence may not be the last in series. "I think what they have in mind is that if this is well enjoyed, then they have some ideas," he said, via Slashfilm. "And there may even be an artful reference towards the end of the movie of what could [happen next]. It sets up the possibility that it's not over--that the fat lady has not yet sung."

Independence Day: Resurgence is set for a June 24, 2016 release. It also stars Maika Monroe, Liam Hemsworth, William Fichtner, and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
