It’s here, and it’s motherfreaking fantastic! Today, 20th Century Fox dropped the first trailer for the long-awaited sequel, Independence Day: Resurgence. I’ve documented and confessed my history with Independence Day as the most electrifying cinema experience I’ve ever had, and it turns out the marketing for the sequel is crafted to appeal to people just like me. The first batch of footage shows all of what made the first film so great, recalling everything that I miss about that era of summer blockbusters. We see Jeff Goldblum’s doom-saying nerdiness, the airborn firefights, and even Bill Pullman’s all-time great speech. Plus, the addition of the likes of Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe, and Charlotte Gainsbourg help make up for Will Smith’s absence.
See the first official trailer below:
Independence Day: Resurgence is scheduled for release on June 24th, 2015.
