Video: Extended Interviews with the Independence Day Resurgence Cast

CS travels to the Albuquerque for exclusive conversations with the Independence Day Resurgence cast!

Last year, 20th Century Fox held a special press event on the Albuquerque set of their much-anticipated upcoming summer blockbuster sequel Independence Day: Resurgence. Revealed during a special livestreamed Q&A was both the film’s official title and a first look at a Moonbase hangar containing a few of the vehicles that the ESD (Earth Space Defense) has developed using alien technology recovered after the “War of 1996.” On that same day, got a special look behind the scenes of the new film along with the opportunity to sit down the Independence Day Resurgence cast.

You can also view the new poster in the gallery underneath the interviews!

In addition to some familiar faces from the first Independence Day with stars Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner and director and producer Roland Emmerich, we also sat down with newcomers to the Independence Day Resurgence cast in the form of Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe, Jessie Usher and Sela Ward. Who will be getting a big speech this time around? What happened to Boomer the dog? Roland Emmerich even answers the question, “Was Randy Quaid’s Russell Casse really abducted by aliens before the first film?” 

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.

Twenty-two years in the making, Independence Day: Resurgence features a script by Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin and James Vanderbilt, James A.Woods & Nicolas Wright. The Independence Day Resurgence cast also includes Judd Hirsch and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Look for it in theaters June 24, 2016.
