Independence Day 2's First Trailer Is...Exactly What You'd Expect

Independence Day: Resurgence is the upcoming blockbuster sequel to a blockbuster movie that most definitely did not need a sequel. Here is its debut trailer. Brace for Goldblum.

By Pullman's Beard!


    It won't be a problem. We have much better Macintoshes now.

      We can wifi their bluetooths now.

        Thats so old school. ID theft through Facebook is where its at these days.

        We'll need to. No ethernet ports on a Macbook!

          Tinder spambots to the rescue. Those aliens will swipe right on pretty much anything.

    I loved how silly the first one was and look forward to more popcorn goodness!

    On another note, Jeff Goldblum looks like ET in that screen grab.

    Those poor Aliens, just think of the type of viruses and malware we can unleash on them now.

      Forget malware. Now we can unleash Cryptolocker on them and make them pay up for their data back.

        Just give them Apple maps, they'll get lost when finding their way back to earth and end up stuck on a desert planet.

      adware is much worse. Imagine spamming ads in all of their monitors!

    This... is a thing that exists?

    Well that's one way to start a week.


      Marked down because 'of' instead of 'have' angers me in my secret place more than any other grammatical error.

    So bummed they replaced Mae Whitman at the former Prez's daughter. She's badass!

    Looks fucking awesome to me. While comicbook movies are all nice and stuff, it's great to see non-comicbook blockbusters coming out. It's not like you can say they've rushed this or are cashing in either. 20 years is a goddamn long time to wait.

      I gotta agree when I first heard they were even making this I thought no.. but after watching the trailer its definitely something I will watch and enjoy by the looks.

        And how good is the fact everyone has aged NATURALLY. There's no make up or anything, it is literally 20 years in the future from when the movie was made. I reckon it'll be good fun ^_^

          Alright whats the go here... ive seen Gand Moff Transient about and now Lando Cashigaru? whats next Wereyoda?

          I am um sad that um I didn't see um Will Smith in um... this trailer.

    will smith? adam baldwin? plzzzzzzz....

      Smith passed on part 2, however if it's a hit you can bet your ass he'll be in for 3. He did Suicide Squad instead. Which to be fair, has set him up for a decade of movies...

        I'm just so unexcited for Suicide Squad. Avengers 2 was peak action hero movie for me. Nothing is exciting me anymore in that genre.

          Personally I found Ultron to be the laziest, most disappointing marvel movie. TWS and GOTG at this point for me are their pinnacles for different reasons. But ultron felt flat and lifeless imho.

            It really felt like it was a big checklist and they ticked off the various scenes. Only good bit about Age of Ultron for me was Hawkeye's family. That was sweet. GotG is the pinnacle for me as well. Was a great movie and all the little things they did to tie it back to Starlord just being a human trying to get by (soundtrack was freaking amazing) just made the movie hum.

            10/10 will probably watch it again (tonight).

              The soundtrack gets constant rotation on my phone and in the car lol

              but hes not human.....

                But he was raised as one. GEEZ You know what I mean. More that we can connect with him.

                He's half human :P

                  but is he really? because we dont know what effect having intercourse with an ancient/celestial/whatever has on a human child. the offspring could potentially be only 10% human - who knows??? O_o


                  Sounds like a Mallrats conundrum.....


        Go to

        You can find out exactly where Steven "Will Smith" Hiller fits into the story.

        err I don't think he'll be back for a 3rd movie.....

          lol if Will turned around and said he wanted to, you'd find some excuse like 'He was abducted! In a coma! It's his clone!' lol

          But I saw the site, I really am impressed, they're building the alt history since 1996 really well.

    I'm intrigued. It looks very serious though compared to the first one, let's hope there's still an element of OTT action, like an alcoholic crop dusting pilot, or a wise cracking African American to talk smack about welcoming more Aliens to earth :P

    ID4 was a good movie, not sure why someone would think making another would be a bad thing, considering for ages now we have had bad movies made from BAD movies. So this should be good, probably not as good as original since that's hard to top.

    did anyone else actually enjoy the movie Battleship? the one with Neeson and Rhianna
    i feel like its kinda the same vibe....
    and for me, thats a positive thing.

      I never actually saw it. Would it be worth watching on a lazy CBF doing anything else kind of afternoon?

        I watched it, please don't watch it. It's that bad. Battle Los Angeles on the other hand was acceptable and sort of has that same vibe.

          Yeah I enjoyed Battle Los Angeles. Was a good romp.

          BLA was horrible.
          Watch Battleship instead. It is awesome. And has old guys carrying munitions. And giant battleships - pew pew pew! Most fun I have had in ages.

            Problem with Battleship is it tried SO HARD to sell the whole AMERICA NAVY to the Audience that it got in the way of the movie. Also some of the Aliens 'shortcomings' were quite hilariously stupid.

        I on the other hand watched it with no expectations and just wanted a boom happy, corny one liner type of movie and it fitted that requirement.

          Now I'm conflicted haha. Sounds like a switch brain off and have a giggle film :P

      I frigging loved Battleship!

    It does feel a bit forced United States patriotism. I think that is why I did not enjoy the first film. Too much "Ra ra US", "US saves the day", "US patriotism is a good thing" etc, followed by a reference shot of random international landmark being overtaken, saved and then cheering for the US.

    If they did not have that stuff, in my opinion as a non-American it would have been better, and I fear this film repeat that formula. :-(

      While I understand that frustration, we have to also consider the fact that US military expenditure is huge compared to the rest of the world. So, if the real thing were to happen, I'd assume they will take a large part in it. One hopes not too late...WW..Cough..Cough.

      The aliens also did attack on the 4th of July, they made it personal :)

      You really should watch Moviebobs analysis of it. It's a great breakdown of the movie, it's not so much 'rah rah USA' at all when you get into it, infact *every single effort* by the Yanks fails until the world unites as one.

    It's exactly what I expected: A massive steaming pile of unnecessary hollywood sequel shit.

    Does Goldblum say "oh my gotch" or is it just me? (Or a very average censor job?)

    At first I was like, "Nyeeeerrh. How could they make a sequel..." and then as the trailer shown the simple conceit I was like, "Yeaaaah. This could be quite nice."

    Wait, no Will Smith?, all the other reappearances but no Will Smith?. Last time I checked, he's still alive in real life, WTF is going on?!?
