The new trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence destroys the landmarks

04.22.2016

In the first INDEPENDENCE DAY Will Smith was sucker punching aliens, Jeff Goldblum was uploading a virus to alien computers, and Brent Spiner was, well, dead. Now, twenty years later, we've got a follow up from director Roland Emmerich that finds things a bit different than before. This time Will Smith is dead, Brent Spiner is alive and Jeff Goldblum...well, we'll just have to wait and see what his answer is to defeating a much larger and much more sinister invasion than before. Sure, it looks like Earth has spent that time preparing for the "second alien coming", but it's not like the aliens haven't brought everything and the kitchen sink to cause IMAX-style damage on the world. Don't think it could've gotten any worse than the first film's invasion? Take a look at the new trailer then...

"They like to get the landmarks..."

It's always a bold risk to drop a sequel two decades since the original, but man if this doesn't feel like a damn good time. It's got the benefit of twenty years worth of CGI upgrades, almost all the key players back (Pullman, baby!) and looks to tap into that cheesy, thrilling, and awe-inducing spectacle feel of the first film. Here's to hoping they can recapture the magic and spirit of the first, even without Smith. Bonus, it doesn't have Randy Quaid either, so we shouldn't have to deal with an ultra goofy self-sacrifice from the village idiot in the finale...right? Also, we need a new Bill Pullman speech and an overly zealous flight crew member rendering salute. It's just not a sequel without it.

INDEPENDENCE DAY RESURGENCE starts destroying landmarks on June 24th, 2016.

Looks really good, except whenever Jessie Usher speaks. I don't know if he can deliver dialogue or act!

"We got to remind them, Earth is not for the taking"
and "Its the Fourth of July, let's show them some fireworks"
Thank you Jessie for reminding me that Steven Hiller was your step-dad, not your blood father. Jessie's horrible delivery of dialogue had me laughing and cringing from how terrible he sounds. The movie may be good, or even pretty good, but this kid may have people pleading for Will Smith to return.

Unnecessary sequel. This looks like every other generic and bland sci-film. Liam Hemsworth as the lead???? LOL

A double rainbow forms in the sky, the birds are chirping, and everyone holds hands and sings kumbaya! The End! After credit scene- Batman brands an alien and everyone loses their shit.

When did the first one even become a movie that people liked. Wasn't it often used synonymously with crap? It was such a stupid movie. What happened? When did we lower our standards so much?

trailer has me interested

enough. Still a bit bummed that they didn't bring back Mae Whitman as the President's daughter. She is awesome. Maybe the tried and she said no, but they likely just recast.

I know this is going to be a big dumb fun action popcorn flick full of 90's nostalgia . You don't have to sell it to me any further.

Emmerich...

mmmmm yeah destruction porn. ... But all sarcasm aside, I think the destruction porn is whats ironically drawing me to the movie. I can be a fan of disaster movies. But like with most disaster movies, I'll be watching it on dvd.

I'll go right out and say it I'm still not looking forward to this movie. I feel like it's going to just be a play on our nostalgia. Perhaps it's that while I do enjoy Independence Day, I don't seem to like it like a lot of people do. I'm having a hard time with Liam Hemsworth as the male lead, he's almost as bad as Jai Courtney. I like Maika Monroe as the former first daughter, I think she'll make for a good female lead. Jessie Usher seems like he actually may be worse than Liam Hemsworth,

Jessie Usher seems like he actually may be worse than Liam Hemsworth, every time he spoke I cringed a little bit. I think Will Smith not being in this is going to be a huge detriment, the chemistry between him and Goldblum was one of my favorite aspects of the original. Jeff Goldblum will always be awesome though as will Bill Pullman. They better give a damn good explanation as to why Spiner is still alive.

Jessie's dialogue delivery in the trailer is horrible! Sweet Jesus, he sounds like an awful actor in IDR.

Love the first film. Really wanted to like this one.. Trailer is OK. ID4 was the movie that made me love will Smith. Him not being in it really bums me out. I know it was his own dumb choice though. Looks like a 6/10. I will go see it expecting to be slightly entertained but nothing more.

Destruction in movies these days show how much we need this world or world order to end. Even in the superhero-movies everything get's destroyed. It must be some kind of self-fullfilling prophecy.

Notice the nostalgia piano on the first seconds of the trailer. It's everywhere these days.
Still, I don't mind this movie, it looks fun, I don't really care much about bad CGI, and as far as resurrecting old franchises go, I'm more excited for sequels like these instead of remakes.

I'm getting a Jurassic World vibe from the trailer, since it's the same kind of remake/sequel hybrid. It seems like another CGI fest where the complete world gets destroyed, but it looks really fun. Nostalgia also plays a big part for me wanting to see this. And Bill Pullman definitely needs to have an epic speech.

as much as I expect this movie, I still have a big concern...

... the over use of CGI...
what made the 1st movie so good was the clever use of practical FX : models for the destructions for exemple...
Here, the use of CGI is too obvious and every shot looks fake... but still, the nostalgia effect, the mass destruction, the cast make me excited for this movie !
