LOS ANGELES - The trailer for the 20th Century Fox “Independence Day” sequel, “Resurgence,” has arrived, featuring lots of explosions, scenes of death and destruction.
“Resurgence” is the sequel to Roland Emmerich’s 1996 science fiction blockbuster starring Will Smith, who incidentally, does not return to this new sequel.
The cast includes Vivica A. Fox, Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Judd Hirsch, Sela Ward and Charlotte Gainsbourg along with Bill Pullman, who played President Thomas J. Whitmore in the original film.
The new film tells the story of a now united Earth must face a new alient threat that appears even more formidable than the original aliens who devastated the planet before being vanquished by a coalition of nations and a rag-tag group of military pilots.
The new installment is set for release on June 24, 2016.
