The first look at the long-awaited Independence Day sequel was a bit of a slow burn and left some fans feeling let down. But this? This trailer packs all the action and explosions you yearn for from Independence Day: Resurgence.
Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman are back, hamming it up in the best possible way, alongside newcomers like Liam Hemsworth and Charlotte Gainsbourg. The ships are bigger, the cities are levelled faster, the one-liners are bountiful, and is that a new species?
We also find out why the aliens are coming back with even more firepower this time – a distress call has been pinging into space, prompting a fresh attempt to wipe humanity off the planet. The best line in the trailer goes (perhaps unsurprisingly) to Goldblum: “They like to get the landmarks.”
Independence Day: Resurgence is set to hit cinemas around the world in June.
