INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE (2016) Movie Trailer 2: “They Like to Get the Landmarks”

Earth Alien Dogfight Independence Day: Resurgence

Independence Day: Resurgence Trailer 2. The second movie trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) has been released. This trailer is better than the first trailer for Independence Day 2 by far. The storyline is explained in more detail and the viewer is given shots of the United States President (Sela Ward) giving a speech and dealing with the new threat to humanity.

The viewer learns the fate of Will Smith‘s character (it is alluded to) and the role of key characters from the last film. The former President (Bill Pullman) is still looked to for inspiration and hope, even twenty years later.

In this trailer, the vast amount of technological advances, via the reverse engineered alien technology, is on display everywhere in society, from football stadiums to hospitals. This film may be locked for best visual effects nominations during awards time.

The film seems even more impressive than many first assumed. What made the first film enjoyable was the human element, whether characters were heroic or clowns, they added to the tapestry of the film. The sequel looks as though it continues that formula. The humor for the previous film is also present and accounted for with “They Like to Get the Landmarks” ending the trailer with a smile-inducing moment.

Many of the storylines begun in the previous film have been carried over into this film: the Will Smith storyline via his stepson (Jessie Usher), the former President’s via him and his child (Maika Monroe), the Area 51 scientist (Brent Spiner), the Jeff Goldblum‘s storyline via him and his father, etc.

I never thought I would say this but I am actually looking forward to Independence Day 2.

Roland Emmerich‘s Independence Day: Resurgence also stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Angelababy, William Fichtner, Liam Hemsworth, Judd Hirsch, and Vivica A. Fox.

Independence Day: Resurgence‘s plot synopsis: “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.”
