The second invasion delayed as Independence Day sequel has been pushed back a year

The long-awaited sequel to the 1996 blockbuster INDEPENDENCE DAY had seemed to be picking up some steam with ID4 duo Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich dropping several hints about the second (and possibly third) installment in the potential alien invasion franchise over the past year, including the return of Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman.

INDEPENDENCE DAY 2 (or ID4Ever, whatever they're calling it now) was announced as having a July 3, 2015 release date, but now that has changed as 20th Century Fox has bumped the film back almost a full year to July 1, 2016.

Fox announced the decision to shift the sequel back a year on the same day that it disclosed it was moving three other key releases back — Josh Trank‘s FANTASTIC FOUR reboot from March 6, 2015, to June 19, 2015; Matthew Vaughn‘s THE SECRET SERVICE to March 6, 2015, instead of November 11, 2014; and Michael Fassbender‘s ASSASSIN's CREED moving to August 7, 2015 from June 19, 2015.
