Roland Emmerich to adapt Blake Crouch sci-fi novel Dark Matter

Bombastic disaster film director Roland Emmerich is taking a rare turn into more heady sci-fi material, announcing that his next project will be  DARK MATTER , based on the Blake Crouch novel of the same name. The novel was released this year, so it's likely most of you haven't gotten to it yet, but he's also the man who wrote the source material for the series Wayward...

Roland Emmerich will follow ID4: Resurgence with space epic Moonfall

Roland Emmerich's newest film INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE has just hit theaters (and gotten a surprisingly decent review from our very own Arrow), but he's not finished with saving the Earth. He's already launching into his next sci-fi epic, a film based on a script he co-wrote with Harald Kloser (2012) and Spencer Cohen (EXTINCTION).  Titled MOONFALL , the...

Face-Off: Independence Day vs. War of the Worlds (2005)

The sequel to Roland Emmerich's 1996 alien invasion film INDEPENDENCE DAY will finally be reaching theatres this weekend, but while we've been waiting twenty years for the Earth vs. aliens rematch that INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE will be giving us, there have been many other cinematic alien invasions during the decades between those films. One of the most high profile was the Steven...

Vegas is excavated from the ruins in this Independence Day: Resurgence promo

INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE has been leaning on some seriously long-winded promotional material lately, but this newest piece is probably my favorite. A creative and silly fake tourism video advertising Las Vegas (once it has been excavated from the rubble of the last alien invasion), it's the first thing that's really got me thinking there might be some creativity involved...

The original sequel to Independence Day was mighty different

Now that INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE is prepped to invade theaters, director Roland Emmerich has spilled the beans about the sequel that might have been, way back when. While the original 1996 film was never intended to have a sequel (clearly), in the post-9/11 world they were working on hammering out a concept. It was after 9/11 and [producer] Dean [Devlin] and I wanted to...

The aliens get the landmarks in this Independence Day: Resurgence clip

This new clip from INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE displays the aliens' predilection for tearing down national landmarks. It makes you wonder why humanity bothered to rebuild them in the first place. Iconic monuments are basically catnip for trouble in Roland Emmerich movies. In the clip, Liam Hemsworth and Jeff Goldblum are stuck in the middle of a massive CGI clusterf*ck that...

Jeff Goldblum explains new tech in this Independence Day Resurgence clip

Is it just me, or is INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE unhealthily obsessed with its own fictional technology? In this new clip, Jeff Goldblum (doing a terrific Jeff Goldblum impression - he literally  begins  the clip with "um") runs us through some more of the tech developments of the human world in the wake of our war with the aliens back in 1996. Which, you may...

Stare an alien straight in the face in this ID4: Resurgence teaser

A new TV spot for INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE has dropped and honestly, it's the first one that has convinced me that the film  might  not be a massive misstep. Full of Roland Emmerich's typical over-the-top bombast, this thirty second spot is actually - dare I say it - kind of  fun . We get some new footage (including a look at a pissed-off alien...

Landmarks crumble on new Independence Day: Resurgence posters

As depicted in INDEPENDENCE DAY, Earth was able to take down invading alien forces in the War of 1996. Twenty years later, the invaders are returning, and judging from the trailers for INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE the destruction they're bringing with them will play out on even larger scale than what we saw in '96. The most famous image from INDEPENDENCE DAY was the shot...

Independence Day Resurgence gets a monster extended trailer

Is anybody actually excited for  INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE ? I definitely know some people who are going to see it, but more out of a sense of obligation than anything.
