UPDATE: Latest Trailer!

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.

I gotta say, this looks much better than expected. Is Will Smith kickin’ himself in the butt for passing on this sequel?

SYNOPSIS: It was an ordinary summer day. But then, without warning, something very extraordinary happened: Enormous shadows fell across the land. Strange atmospheric phenomena, ominous and mesmerizing, surfaced around the globe. All eyes turned upward.

The question of whether we’re alone in the universe was finally answered. And, in a matter of minutes, the lives of every person across the globe were forever changed.

With the fate of our planet at stake, the Fourth of July took on an entirely new meaning. No longer was it solely an American holiday. It would be known as the day the entire world fought back. The day we did not go gentle into the good night … The day all of us on planet Earth celebrated our Independence Day.

From director Roland Emmerich and producer Dean Devlin, 1996’s Independence Day shattered opening weekend and total box office records, becoming the year’s top-grossing film. It also became the first movie in history to gross over $500m internationally.

But Independence Day was just the beginning. We always knew they were coming back. After that film redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter in the Independence Day universe delivers a 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.

‘ID4 2’ will invade theaters on June 24, 2016!
