Video: Independence Day Resurgence trailer
If you grew up in the ’90s, then the chances that Independence Day was your favourite film (at least for a week or so) are pretty good.
The wise-cracking, ass-kicking Will Smith, teaming up with a Jeff Goldblum (in vintage form) to save the world from aliens was the equivalent to cinematic crack for action film fans. And now, 20 years later we can finally brace ourselves for the sequel: Independence Day Resurgence.
Now, we’ll be the first to admit that the original film not short on pyrotechnics, but if the newly released trailer is anything to go by, Resurgence looks like it will quite easily surpass that.
The film trailer, which debuted at last night’s Superbowl, features the returning aliens blowing up even more of the planet than they did before, only this time with bigger guns and ships to finish the invasion.
Sadly, Smith’s will not be joining Goldblum in reprising his role in the sequel, but luckily, his young son is now all grown up and a fighter pilot himself.
So while, you watch the trailer, perhaps you can answer us this question: what’s the Burj Khalifa doing in London?
Independence Day Resurgence opens worldwide on June 24.
