The Independence Day: Resurgence mothership will be absolutely massive

We're going to need a bigger Earth. If you thought that the alien ships from the original INDEPENDENCE DAY were massive, then the upcoming sequel will almost certainly challenge your definition of the word. INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE will pick up many years after the events of the first film and find that the nations of the Earth have joined together to develop a planetary defense system using recovered alien technology, but as we've witnessed in the trailers, that may not be enough to save us. Director Roland Emmerich spoke with Entertainment Weekly and revealed the size of the alien's new Mothership.

The Mothership comes to Earth, and it spans the Atlantic Ocean.

That certainly is on the large side, and while I'm no big city country scientist, I'd imagine that an object that size would present us with a few gravitational problems. Despite the high stakes, Emmerich says that the now unified peoples of Earth may stand a chance, “I always say, it’s a post-war world. We call [the first movie] the War of ‘96. Which we won! But it’s also kind of clear that they were going to come back. So we’ve stayed unified.” Emmerich went on to say that he views INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE as a "mildly optimistic" alternative vision of recent history, saying "in these days when our world is so not united, this is a very poignant thing to do in a movie. To show how much we can accomplish.

A synopsis for INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE:

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.

INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE will hit theaters on June 24, 2016.

I have zero interest in this movie! It just looks so boring and generic.

I remember when the first film came out, a lot of scientists were complaining that the alien ships in the movie would destroy cities by simply coming through the earth's atmosphere. They're gonna love this mothership.

it wasn't the fact that they were coming through the atmosphere. They were complaining that the downward thrust that would be required to keep the ships up would destroy our cities. Well i guess it would if they used BOOSTERS but obviously thats not what they are using.

Meh.

As much as I enjoyed the first one back in 1996, I just can't get excited about this movie. Nothing about it feels like they're trying to recapture what was so special about the original in it's time. This is just another run-of-the-mill invasion flick.

Also, June 24th? Did they forget what their movie is called?
