New INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE TV Ad Hints At More Alien Revelations


“She has arrived!”

The one thing about the alien invaders in the original Independence Day is that we never learn much about them. Outside of the fact that they were swarming, locust-like over the planet and that their computers were Mac compatible. But with the sequel coming our way this summer, it looks as if we will be learning more about the aliens than the first movie let us in on. In the newly released TV ad below, we can see that us humans have captured a few of the aliens and have been studying them enough to be able to possibly interpret their actions. And those actions probably mean most likely does not bode well for humanity. But then again, if it di, we wouldn’t have a movie, would we?

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 stars Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe and Sela Ward. It opens June 24.
