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.
This new trailer shows off more Liams Hemsworth and whoever this is taking Will Smith’s place, as well as more Jeff Goldblum. Overall the movie does its best to acknowledge Will Smith’s existence but not let his absence overshadow what this film is trying to accomplish.
Overall I think this is a great trailer. It has summer popcorn fun written all over it. My expectations for a sequel that’s 20 years in the making is fairly nil so all this movie has to do to be a success is to make me laugh a few times and wow me with some CGI space fairing dog fights with fighter jets and spaceships. Seriously, this is an easy win.
I’ve got nothing else. That’s all for now…
