Oh, come on, it was a good pun headline! Independence Day 2 is a thing that is actually going to happen. I know. The official title, since studios seem to love sequels but hate numbering them, will be Independence Day: Resurgence. Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Brent Spiner (basically everyone but Will Smith is coming back who lived through the first invasion….but honestly what is Will Smith doing that is more important than this, sadly?). Roland Emmerich, Das King of Blowing Stuff Up, will return to direct. FOX is looking to put ID4: Resurgence in theaters on June 24, 2016. Here’s the only synopsis we have so far.
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.
Oh and as a special America birthday gift to the Tea Party, here’s a clip from the first film of them blowing up The White House.
