Who knows how long two Earth decades is to those creepy invading aliens, but it might as well be a millennium in show business. But Fox today secured a July 3, 2015, release date for Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day 2 – 19 years and one day after the original opened en route to becoming the biggest movie of 1996 and making Will Smith a bona fide movie star. Also slated for Fourth of July weekend a couple of years hence is Universal’s Untitled Illumination Entertainment Project, which is being kept under wraps. Fox also said today that Tim Burton’s adaptation Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children will bow four weeks after ID2 on July 31, 2015. As of now, the pic appears to have that weekend to itself.
