For many, many years it was believed that the sequel to Independence Day would be called ID Forever. That dream has now been smashed with the release of the Roland Emmerich film’s first poster (we’ve already seen some production art). The sequel to the smash 1996 hit will now be called Independence Day: Resurgence.
The ’80s were all about Roman numerals, the ’90s numbers – and now the noughties are all about the colon.
Here’s the official 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.’
Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward star.
