New Independence Day: Resurgence Trailer Features Giant Aliens and Moon Bases
The first Independence Day movie was the quintessential Summer blockbuster, so it stands to reason that 20 years on, its sequel should follow in its footsteps. In a summer packed full of geeky movies from Captain America: Civil War to Suicide Squad, Independence Day: Resurgence looks set to offer up some more traditional blockbuster fare.

As this explosive new trailer for Roland Emmerich's big sequel shows, Independence Day: Resurgence has everything you want from a Summer popcorn flick. 

- Giant Aliens? Check.

- Enough explosions to make even Michael Bay blush? Check.

- Witty one-liners delivered by a Hollywood master (Jeff Goldblum)? Check.

- Hemsworth brother? Check.



Set 20 years after the events of the first movie, Independence Day: Resurgence sees humanity rebuilding thanks to the capture of alien technology. With bases on the moon and a new Earth Space Defense Force, our planet should be safe from any future alien threats.  The problem is, the aliens we defeated 20 years ago have also had a couple of decades to think things over, and it looks like they're pretty pissed.

While some characters have been replaced and Will Smith hasn't returned, Resurgence features a host of cast members from its predecessor. Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman and Brent Spiner will all reprise their roles from 1996, while Hemsworth, Jessie Usher, and Maika Monroe add a modern face to proceedings.

It might look a little silly, but we're cautiously optimistic that Independence Day: Resurgence can recapture that classic popcorn magic displayed by its predecessor 20 years ago. 

Independence Day: Resurgence is released on June 24th 2016
