Last week, we reported that a new trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence is coming soon, since the footage was recently rated by Alberta Film Ratings. 20th Century Fox never officially revealed when the trailer would debut, but during today's NFL football games on the Fox network, the first trailer debuted. In case you weren't watching the pigskin action today, we have the full trailer below.
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 $500 million 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.
Original Independence Day stars Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox and Brent Spiner all return from the original 1996 blockbuster. New additions to the cast for Independence Day: Resurgence include Liam Hemsworth,Angelababy, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward and Jessie Usher. This highly-anticipated sequel will make summer 2016 one to remember when it explodes onto screens worldwide June 24.
Production wrapped on Independence Day: Resurgence back in August, and this sequel will go up against Sony's horror-thriller The Shallows. Do you think Independence Day: Resurgence could be just as successful as the original blockbuster Independence Day, 20 years after its debut? Stay tuned for more on this highly-anticipated summer sequel, but for now, take a look at this new footage from Independence Day: Resurgence.
