The wait is finally over!
Check out the first trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence. It’s the highly anticipated sequel to the 1996 blockbuster Independence Day and features Survivor’s Remorse star Jessie T. Usher and original cast member Vivica A. Fox. 20th Century Fox released the first trailer over the weekend.
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.
In Independence Day: Resurgence, Fox reprises her role as Jasmine Dubrow while Usher plays an older Dylan Hiller, the son of Jasmine and Captain Steve Hiller, played by Will Smith. In 2013, the film’s director Roland Emmerich, alluded to the fact that the sequel would focus on the ‘offspring’ taking over.
“It’s still some of the same characters, but also new younger characters; it’s a little bit like the sons take over […] The first one ends on a little success, but only enough to give the humans hope. And then in the second one they free themselves again [from the aliens],” said Emmerich in a statement.
Independence Day: Resurgence also reunites original stars Bill Pullman and Jeff Goldblum. Check it out below:
