First ‘Independance Day Resurgence’ trailer reveals the alien return, new details

Independence Day Resurgence Jeff Goldblum LIam Hemsworth photoThe first trailer for Independence Day 2 debuted during a football game, giving fans their first real look at the sequel 20 years after the successful blockbuster. Check out the Independence Day Resurgence trailer and details (via JoBlo):

It looks like President Whitmore (Bill Pullman) may still have a connection to the aliens after learning the plans of their species through a psychic connection in the first film. The grizzled beard shows us that he might be dealing with some serious post-traumatic stress after his encounter with the aliens the first time around. The interruption of his memorable speech at the end is a great touch.

Jeff Goldblum’s character is back in space as part of the Earth Space Defense program, the worldwide initiative created with the goal of being prepared if the aliens ever returned, complete with a base on the moon. This is where Liam Hemsworth‘s character is working, and it looks like he has a romance with Whitmore’s daughter, played by It Follows star Maika Monroe.

Jessie Usher is set to play Will Smith’s character’s son, Captain Steven Hiller’s son, taking the aerial fight to space this time.

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 $500m 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.

Independence Day Resurgence arrives in theaters on June 24, 2016.
