From one big American pastime to another, we go from Superbowl to Independence Day as yesterday’s mammoth sporting event gave us a brand new look at Independence Day: Resurgence thanks to a new TV spot.
And this new preview doubles down on both the US flag-waving patriotism and returning franchise director Roland Emmerich’s patented wide-screen big budget destruction porn and the results are about as cheesily glorious as I could hope for. I cannot freaking wait!
Check out the trailer below!
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.
Independence Day: Resurgence stars Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe and Sela Ward. Will Smith will not be reprising his original character of Sgt. Hiller thanks to coming down with a slight case of being killed off-screen.
