Just when everyone is busy with the upcoming showing of the latest Star Wars instalment, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a trailer for another awesome movie was released to the public. In case you missed it, the movie we’re talking about is Independence Day: Resurgence. While it’s set for viewing summer of 2016, a lot of people are already talking about it online.
The teaser was shown during a football game last Sunday. Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman reprise their characters once again, with the addition of Liam Hemsworth and Charlotte Gainsborough. Sadly, main actor Will Smith is not returning for this film. Smith’s character, Col. Steven Hiller, was killed during a test piloting of the alien hybrid due to an unknown malfunction.
To make it easier for the millennials to understand the sequel, 20th Century Fox decided to create a website that devotes its entirety to explaining critical events that happened back in 1996. Included in the said website is the recounting of the past movie. A timeline of what happened after was also created to help make the sequel blend in better.
The sequel to the 1996 blockbuster movie tackles the ‘resurgence’ of their evil enemies. The plot of the sequel focuses on the use of the recovered technology from the aliens fought in 1996 and using them for a state of the art defense program to protect the entire Mother Earth. What our main characters did not anticipate is the more advanced warfare equipment of the aliens. How then do you protect your country and survive such a disaster?
Released by 20th Century Fox, Independence Day: Resurgence is set to debut on June 24, 2016. Other stars of the film include, Vivica Fox, Judd Hirsch, Maika Monroe, Joey King and Jessie Usher who plays the son of Will Smith’s character in the movie.
