Independence Day 2 will finally hit screens on 24 June 2016 – almost 20 years to the day that Roland Emmerich destroyed the world with copious amounts of special effects and aliens. Emmerich, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Brent Spinner, writer Dean Devlin and the aliens are returning for the sequel – but Will Smith and Randy Quaid are not (no surprise on the latter’s no-show). This sequel comes with added Liam Hemsworth.

Here’s the artwork….

…and the official synopsis:

After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe 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.

I know that belated sequels are all the rage these days – but is anyone really crying out for Independence Day 2?
