20th Century Fox has released a new trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence, the sequel to the 1996 hit film Independence Day. The most exciting part of the trailer is seeing Brent Spiner! In the original film, the aliens used Dr. Brackish Okun (Spiner) as a translator puppet and it looked like they killed him. We thought he was dead. Well, he’s not and evidently his experience (and most likely two more decades of research) with the aliens has given him the gift of understanding them. And that’s when the trailer gets eerie.
When other folks ask why some prisoner aliens are screaming, he corrects them, “They’re not screaming. They’re celebrating.” Aw, man! That means bad things are a comin’! Like a giant fleet of the mofo aliens! We also see in the trailer that Bill Pullman is back as President Whitmore and instead of giving an inspiring speech, it looks like he’s the next human that gets the honor of acting as a translator puppet.
All in all, the film looks to be a super fun flick for the summer. In addition to Spiner and Pullman, original castmembers Jeff Goldblum, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox and Sela Ward are back. The film also stars Liam Hemsworth, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher and Maika Monroe. Roland Emmerich is back at the helm as director.
From 20th Century Fox: 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 theaters June 24, 2016.
