Just as Earth Day begins, Independence Day: Resurgence rolls in with a trailer depicting the possible destruction of the planet.

While we saw some of this back in December, the new trailer has even more footage of the new alien invasion swarming in 20 years after the first one. Many of the soldiers this time around grew up in a world where humans could do the impossible, and they’re getting ready to do it again. But first their world will take some major damage.

“They like to get the landmarks,” Jeff Goldblum notes. He’s never been more right.

The movie debuts June 24.
