The teaser poster has arrived for Independence Day: Resurgence and you may notice a striking similarity to the original 1996 movie’s poster.
The new teaser sees a spaceship above the Earth recalling the poster for the original movie, which featured the same spaceship above a city. It features the tagline ‘We had twenty years to prepare. So did they.’
Independence Day: Resurgence is directed by Roland Emmerich who produces the film with Dean Devlin and Harald Kloser. The star-studded cast features Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe and Sela Ward.
Original lead Will Smith chose not to return for the movie and it has been confirmed that his character will have died in the time that’s passed between the two movies.
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: Resurgence arrives in UK cinemas on 24th June 2016. Take a look at the striking new poster below:
