Get ready for some trademark Roland Emmerich destruction because 20th Century Fox just unveiled the official title for the upcoming sequel to Independence Day, as well as the first synopsis as well as some behind-the-scenes photos. There is also some exclusive concept art via Empire Magazine depicting some major destruction. (Would we expect anything less from Emmerich?)
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.
Independence Day: Resurgence stars Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, and newcomers Liam Hemsworth, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe and Sela Ward. The movie hits theaters June 24, 2016.
