20th Century Fox has released the official trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence in celebration of Earth Day. In this trailer more of the story is revealed in that, the aliens have returned with a vengeance and much larger than last time. It’s been 20 years since the Earth has last seen the invading aliens and they have been preparing for their return, upgrading their weaponry with alien tech. But judging from the trailer, it won’t really matter because they are back with a ship as large as the Atlantic Ocean and what appears to be a giant alien. This looks like it may be as fun as the first but certain scenes in the trailer didn’t come off too well, like the scene where we hear, what looks to be, part of a speech from Captain Hiller’s son. It was brief but Jessie Usher may not have the same charisma as Will Smith; though I am interested to see how the film will flesh out his character. All in all this looks like a fun popcorn movie for the summer and I’m excited to see it.
