Well here’s a nice little treat to end the weekend on. 20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for the upcoming sequel to Independence Day a little early (was supposed to debut later in the week with Star Wars: The Force Awakens). Officially titled Independence Day: Resurgence, many of the original cast has returned–except Will Smith–for what looks like an epic showdown between Earth and the alien invaders once again.
To be honest, I didn’t have high hopes for this movie, but after seeing this first trailer, I am thinking differently. This looks like it could be a pretty good sequel, which can be rare these days. Especially based on a movie that is 20 years old.
Independence Day: Resurgence is directed by Roland Emmerich and stars Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, and Sela Ward. It is set to premiere in theaters on June 24, 2016.
