Roland Emmerich’s newfound United Global Defense Unit flaunts its alien arsenal in today’s new TV spot and featurettes for Independence Day: Resurgence.
Set to loom over theaters in little over a month’s time, the director’s long-in-development sequel has spent much of its marketing campaign paying respect to the War of 1996, and particularly those brave men and women who took the fight to the invading menace.
One pilot that’s naturally been thrust into the center of attention is Will Smith’s fallen Steven Hiller, who died in the intervening years between ’96 and the imminent alien Resurgence while testing alien weaponry. That’s something that’s also highlighted in the featurettes below, including the slick Space Tug to be piloted by franchise newcomer, Liam Hemsworth.
Rounding out the cast of old faces and new are Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward.
Independence Day: Resurgence will stage another battle for Earth when Roland Emmerich’s long-in-development sequel launches on June 24.
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.
