New Independence Day: Resurgence Trailer Delivers Maximum Mayhem

"They like to get the landmarks."

27 Comments

The earth will be fighting for survival once again this summer, when Independence Day: Resurgence blasts into cinemas. The sequel to the 1996 sci-fi action blockbuster arrives in June, and a new trailer has been released. Check it out below:

Resurgence sees Roland Emmerich in the director's chair once again, with Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, and Bill Pulman also returning to save the world from alien invaders.

In a recent interview with Slashfilm, Emmerich spoke about how the extra-terrestrial aggressors would differ from those in the first movie. "They’re kind of nastier, than the first ones," he revealed. "This time they’re CG. With the first one, it was kind of wiggling s**t, and we had little puppets.

"And now we have a company like WETA, who does the best creature work, working with us. So that’s exciting to me."

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

To celebrate Earth Day and the release of the new trailer, the first Independence Day has been marked down to just 99 cents on Google Play. All proceeds will be donated to the Earth Day Network.

As good as the first one was I'll pass on this, a sequel wasn't needed and really can't anything exist as a one off anymore???

Jessie Usher actually sort of looks like the kid from the original movie. Movie looks pretty nice as well

This trailer was soooo fucking amazing, I'm gonna go pre-order my tickets baby :P

I bet Will Smith is regretting that he turn down Independence Day: Resurgence. This movie would have definitely put him back on top, big mistake Will and I don't even think Suicide Squad is gonna do you any good.

that's all this movie will deliver, meyhem... while the original had good characters and story. It'll be trash compared to the first one, sadly.

@silversix_: I'm curious; what part of "aliens attacking Earth" is "a good story"?

And yes we all got on side with Hiller, Levinson and Whitmore, but in reality they were no more than clichéd Hollywood cardboard cutouts.

Not to mention the ridiculous stereotypes; Japanese soldiers looking like their WW2 imperial counterparts. The French; just short of wearing black and white striped vests with a circlet of garlic around their necks, hiding underground like the resistance of old and let's not forget the British; hiding out in the desert with their motorcycle moustaches, fur lined leather flying jackets and flying scarfs, complete with the accents of gentlemen zipping around in incredible flying machines!

Where was I....

Ah yes, the first one was fun, but not exactly original or good. I can safely assume that this one will be very much the same.

@jossu7: GOOD? Is that why Batman vs Superman is getting extreme negative responses from all critics? Or you just a fan of this movie? Because like Obi Wan Kenobi said,

"Bury your feelings deep down .... They could do you goood, but they" may distract you to a path of uncertain consequences.

@skittymiao: I don't care what critics say. I can't respect a person who's job is to just criticize other peoples hard efforts. I'm doing my master's in computer graphics and I enjoy when movies use CG. Zack Snyder is not the best storyteller, but his movies have one of the best visual styles and I enjoy that. :)

@jossu7: Congrats, you are the perfect brainless consumer-- makes excuses for bad storytelling with personal anecdotes. Yeah, I'll take the opinion of a professional journalist on BvS over some schmuck on the internet whose job it is to make pretty colors on a computer.

@d-man: What's brainless about having your own opinion and tastes? And now you're using personal attacks? Great job buddy, keep it up!

@andfx8: You can have your opinion and tastes... so can the people whose job it is to review movies-- objectively-- for a living.
