Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!
Although we’ve still got a year before Roland Emmerich’s long-awaited Independence Day sequel, Independence Day Resurgence, hits the big screen, 20th Century Fox is already celebrating! Emmerich himself tweeted a new motion poster teaser, which you can check out below! Just above that, though, you can find a video clip from the original film featuring Bill Pullman’s famous speech as President Thomas J. Whitmore. Then, if you head over to the film’s official Facebook page, you can find out how to use Dubsmash to record your own version.
Starring Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe and Sela Ward, Independence Day Resurgence is officially described as follows:
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.
