Independence Day: Resurgence – Extended Trailer
Today, Twentieth Century Fox has presented us with an extended trailer for their upcoming blockbuster sequel – Independence Day: Resurgence.
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.
The film, directed by Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow, 2012), sees the return of the extra-terrestrials, now hellbent on revenge after their defeat at the hands of in the first movie. The trailer treats us to some spectacular views of the alien mothership crashing down upon the Earth, as we fade between shots of the cast, both new and returning, and we are given glimpses of how our planet has advanced between the war of 1996, and today (naturally, the alien tech has granted us some amazing advancements).
The trailer shows us that the events of the first film have left some characters weary of future attacks, with worries of impending defeat, while others are more optimistic, with Thomas J. Whitmore (Bill Pullman) rebuffing David Levinson’s (Jeff Goldblum) fears – stating that humanity never had a chance against the invaders last time either, leading onto a short inspirational speech. Needless to say, it wouldn’t be Independence Day without one of Earth’s most recognisable landmarks getting destroyed.
