I'm actually kinda hyped about this, all of a sudden. The trailer for INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE looks like a pretty amazing summer blockbuster experience--even if Will Smith is nowhere to be found (and he used to be the king of summer blockbusters, pre-Dwayne Johnson).The 2-minute video is giving me major Armageddon meets Independence Day vibes, and that's alright with me. Though Smith jumped ship, I'm stoked to see the rest of the original cast there, including Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, and Sela Ward. I'm also curious to see what Liam Hemsworth (who's good to look at, but is stale toast when it comes to his acting).
Get ready for it... Here's the synopsis:
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.
