The battle for global domination continues in the thrilling new trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence!
With the apparent death of Will Smith’s heroic Col. Steve Hiller, Earth’s in need of a few more heroes in the long-awaited sequel to the 1996 blockbuster, and Liam Hemsworth is among the new crop of courageous individuals stepping up to once again save the world from extinction.
Despite using the recovered alien technology from the original film to create an immense defense program to protect the planet against future attacks, the aliens have returned to earth with unprecedented force. Directed by Roland Emmerich, the new trailer introduces Independence Day newcomers like Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward, and the aforementioned Hemsworth while also catching us up with returning favorites Jeff Goldblum, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, and, of course, Bill Pullman.
“We convinced an entire generation that this is a battle that we can win,” Pullman’s former President Whitmore says during an impassioned monologue. “We sacrificed for each other no matter what the cost. And that’s worth fighting for.”
We may have had twenty years to prepare for an attack… but so did they.
“We have to remind them that earth is not for the taking.”
Independence Day: Resurgence arrives in theaters on June 24, 2016.
