There, through the oppressive fog of Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailers and merchandise, comes a trailer even more dramatic. Today, we received a preview of Independence Day: Resurgence.
The release was somewhat of a surprise, but apparently a teaser was shown Sunday afternoon in the midst of football games. Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman return in this sequel to the 1996 blockbuster to fight the “resurgence,” along with Liam Hemsworth and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Will Smith’s character, however, does not return.
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.
The movie is set to debut June 24.
