First teaser for Independence Day: Resurgence starts the invasion

12.13.2015

The invasion has begun! Roland Emmerich's long-awaited sequel is heading to theaters next summer and now we've got our first teaser and it looks...pretty badass! Now, maybe it's an easy move to use Bill Pullman's famous speech from the end of the first film to punch up the visuals, but this just looks like a whole heap of fun. Bigger, badder, space-ier, and with more than enough familiar faces to make it feel like a proper sequel. Really, having Goldblum is enough, but bringing back Pullman is a solid win as well. It's been a hell of a wait and it's been a while since Emmerich really wowed us, so this is a welcome addition to the summer movie line-up of 2016. Strap in and get ready for the end of the world.

Here's the synopsis:

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.

You can get a peek at our set visit from earlier this year HERE and get an explanation of why Will Smith isn't in the film HERE. There's also a fun site set up that explores the events between the last film and now called The War of 1996. We got ya covered. The film has an impressive roster of stars, including original cast members Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, and Judd Hirsch, with new additions of Sela Ward (as the President), Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe, Joey King, William Fichtner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and...Angelababy? (I hope that's on her driver's license).

INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE invades theaters on June 24, 2016.

Independence Day is a hard movie to up the ante on. For my money there hasn't been a movie since that has shown citywide destruction and been as effective with it. But I'm also excited to see the mythology of Independence Day continue. Especially with two out of three of the main actors still willing to fight the good fight (I love that Whitmore is having nightmares, likely due to his telepathic encounter with one of the aliens). And while we've had to wait twenty years for another movie, it's

And while we've had to wait twenty years for another movie, it's hopefully given them time to craft something as detailed as the first, instead of the sort of half-baked idea that probably would've come if they made a sequel three or four years later.

Vivica A Fox is probably jumping for joy....

after doing Sharnado 2 (or was it 3, sorry) she was probably waiting for this paycheck. It's not a big deal that they killed off Smiths character but I wish they would have done something different. I'm seeing Star Wars this Thursday and if one of the originals is killed off it kind of ruins the older movies. But this is just my opinion.

Doesn't look bad at all...
Once I heard Will Smith wasn't returning, i basically wrote this movie off. Not a fan of the crappy Hemsworth but who doesn't like Goldblum. Genuinely surprised by the teaser, actually looking forward to this one now.

The teaser has the same tone as the original. The original looked 'super serious' but then you realized how not-serious the movie was. Still dig it and all but I bet this will have a lot of humor like the first.

I have to admit I was quite skeptical for quite a few different reasons, but this trailer absolutely won me over. It looks phenomenal and it is so great to see Jeff Goldblum again doing what he does best.

Dr. Ian Malcolm! The movie looks way more interesting than I thought it would have. They will definitely get my money for this go around. Color me excited.

Only seeing this for Goldblum

I mean, given the concept, this doesn't look nearly as bad as Battleship. Looks more in line with Battle: Los Angeles which I thought was pretty decent.

I don't think it looks bad I just don't understand what looks so good about it. It doesn't look like a sequel to Independence Day. It looks like a Michael bay flick.

And what's up with that aqua blue tint of early 2000 scify movies? If it didn't look dated already, that tint makes it look all the more dated. Like they wanted to beat us over the head with jow dated this production looks. Vintage 1995 with a touch of 2002.

Everything about this brings back the fun of the first I think we got another jurassic park kind of sequel on our

Everything about this brings back the fun of the first I think we got another jurassic park kind of sequel on our hands here. And I am more an pleased. The first one holds such a huge place in my heart, I must of seen the first like a 100 times easily. And each time it gets better and better, the special effects in that were bonkers and still stay fresh till today but holy fuck these visuals take it to a whole other world.

My interest just sky rocked!

I always wanted an ID4 2. Just when I thought it never would come, it was announced. I was interested, but holding off any excitement until a trailer was released. I gotta say I have no clue what the new and BIGGER alien ships are, but goddam am I excited to find out and see this.

Looks pretty good! I really wish Randy Quaid would have come back! His character was great in the first one! This trailer made the film look more like a drama than the first one. Hopefully there will be a character that can bring the comedy to this like Will Smith did, so it's not just a straight action/drama.

lol it's amazing how he literally looks the same. If 20 years ago you told me to name 2 actors who would be dead by 2016. My guesses wouldve been him and robert Loggia (RIP)

Will Smith wouldn't come back for this but he though After Earth was a good idea? Dumb. ID4 was the film that made me love Will Smith as a kid. Sucks he didn't want to be in it. Concussion looks mediocre, Willy.

No matter what happens, no matter how many terrible movies he makes, no matter how this turns out, "Welcome to Earth" will always be one of the best movie lines ever.

Why would I be racist for that? I'm not even white nor American, I was in (the equivalent of) 9th grade when I first saw it, then I haven't watched it again in years, and for a kid at the time it just sounds more amusing that way.

ya we did. All we saw was someone take a pulse. No vocal or visual confirmation that he was DEAD! so sure, maybe back then he was intended to be dead. But in this case. possibly a coma or unconcious.

I'll be happy to check my brain at the door and enjoy the spectacle. Its nice to see a lot of space movies coming out recently on a side note. The sense of awe and wonder that happens when watching the space epics is a beautiful thing.

It looks amazingly good for an Emmerich film.....

But why exactly is Vivica Fox back? As an aged stripper? What exactly could her contribution be (especially since she can't really act)?

Even though I dislike Smith, it would have been nice to see him be a team player and come back for the sequel in an ensemble effort.

But it looks just as good without him and was definitely an effective teaser. I mean, all I needed was Goldblum, and Pullman back and I was in.
