Independence Day will forever be one of my favorite big-screen experiences and I’ve been hoping for/dreading a sequel since the day it was released in 1996 (coincidentally on July 4th). It’s safe to say that (in combination with Bad Boys) it launched the movie career of then TV star and rapper Will Smith. Here we are, 20 years later and the long-awaited, much-talked-about sequel has finally gotten a trailer.
Independence Day: Resurgence
Release Date: June 24, 2016
Directed By: Roland Emmerich

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.
