Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman return in the first Independence Day: Resurgence trailer
No Will Smith? No problem. At least not for the Fox, who were determined to make a sequel to their 1996 blockbuster INDEPENDENCE DAY. For those of us that were alive in 1996, we remember Big Willy being a big part of why the film was so successful and I’m not convinced a sequel can be successful without him. But the first trailer for the sequel has debuted and it’s better than I thought it would be. Check it out below and see for yourself.
The official 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. INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE stars Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Angelababy, William Fichtner and Sela Ward. The Roland Emmerich directed film hits theaters on June 24th, 2016.
