Another summer blockbuster is set to invade theaters this week and it looks like it’s going to be a huge one! Following 20 years since the original hit theaters with Will Smith in the lead role, “Independence Day – Resurgence” is a $200 million juggernaut that will probably go on to rake in upwards of a billion dollars in theaters worldwide in the coming weeks and months.
The film, which officially hits theaters on June 24, includes a deep cast featuring Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Angelababy, Sela Ward and William Fichtner.
Here’s more about the film:
Twenty years after the events of the first film, the international community recovers and the United Nations creates the Earth Space Defense (ESD), a united global defense program that serves as Earth’s early warning system and the main defense force using technology salvaged from remains of the alien forces, with some military forces assembled on the Moon, Mars and Rhea, and the Area 51 base has become the Space Defense Headquarters. However, the aliens were able to send a distress signal to their other battalions before their final defeat while others went into hiding elsewhere around the world as they headed by their queen. The aliens in deep space received the signal and sent a larger and more powerful battle fleet, threatening the human race once more. Source
