The alien menace is back, and this time the space ships are bigger (and more CGI-heavy) than ever before in the first, explosive trailer for director Roland Emmerich's predictably destructive Independence Day: Resurgence.
It's been 20 years since Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman were able to call the people of Earth to arms and defend the planet against an enormous, world-ending extraterrestrial threat.
Now, two decades later, Pullman has a huge, white old man beard, Goldblum has a cool-guy haircut, and the as cocky fighter ace role Smith once occupied is now filled by Liam Hemsworth.
It's hard to glean too much about the plot from this epic, city-leveling glimpse at the long-awaited sequel, but it's safe to say the plot might be pretty similar to the original (i.e. Aliens come to destroy the planet. A confident hero and a computer nerd save the day while lots of stuff explodes).
Only this time around it looks like Goldblum is going to be visiting other planets (maybe the moon?!) in a spacesuit left over from the set of Interstellar, and also the explosions are going to be computer generated instead of the amazing practical effects that made ID4 so engaging back in 1996.
Goldblum sums up the ethos of the sequel up nicely at the end of the trailer when he looks at the new, gargantuan invasion ship and solemnly says, "That is definitely bigger than the last one." But as we've learned from many sequels -- including Goldblum's own Jurassic Park follow-up The Lost World -- bigger doesn't always mean better. But we can always hope.
In the end, it all comes down to the action sequences, the one-liners and the cast chemistry, and whether you think this looks like a mix between Transformers, Battleship, and The Day After Tomorrow or not, there's no way to deny that Hemsworth and Goldblum could make a really phenomenal, charming team.
Independence Day: Resurgencecomes out (you guessed it) on June 24.
