Watch the Live Independence Day 2 Reveal With Roland Emmerich, Jeff Goldblum and More!
Excitement around Roland Emmerich's sequel to Independence Day has been building, albeit slowly, since the project was announced all those months ago. While Will Smith won't be returning to save Earth, original cast members including Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman and Vivica A. Fox have all returned to give Independence Day 2 that much needed sense of familiarity. Tonight, those original cast members will be joining Emmerich and a host of new additions to the cast for a special live stream Q&A from New Mexico, and we're told that it will be accompanied by an "exciting reveal".

You can watch the live stream in the player below from 6pm PT (9pm ET). 
 
Joining the original cast for the Independence Day sequel are young up-and-comers like Maika Monroe (It Follows), Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games), and Jessie Usher. If you're wondering why this esteemed group of movie professionals have assembled in Albuquerque, it's because the New Mexico city is serving as the Independence Day sequel's primary filming location. With production well underway, it's likely that tonight's reveal will include a first teaser trailer along with a potentially revised title. At present, the first of two planned sequels has been given the rather functional moniker, Independence Day 2, with the duo of sequels falling being labelled ID4-Ever. In this age of colons in movie titles, it's hard to imagine either of those two names sticking through to release, so expect 20th Century Fox's marketing team to have come up with some form of Independence Day: [Insert ominous tagline here] title format.

Here's the official synopsis for the first Independence Day sequel:

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.

Independence Day 2 is scheduled for release on June 24 2016.
