Just in case you forgot in the haze of Batman and Superman not being best friends, 20th Century Fox has released a new TV spot to remind you that Independence Day: Resurgence is coming this summer and with it, the second wave of alien invaders who nearly destroyed planet earth in the original film back in 1996. The new teaser leans heavily on the returning stars of the original film. There’s Bill Pullman’s former President Thomas Whitmore interfacing with the aliens. There’s Jeff Goldblum’s David Levinson being exactly as deadpan and snarky as you require. There’s even Brent Spiner, who played the insane Area 52 scientist in the original film, this time apparently able to understand how the aliens communicate. Watch it here now.
Roland Emmerich once again directs from a script he cowrote with his old partner Dean Devlin along with Nic Wright & James A. Woods, and James Vanderbilt. Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox and Brent Spiner reprise their roles from the original film. They’re joined this time out by Liam Hemsworth, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Joey King, Angelababy, and William Fichtner. Noticeably absent: Will Smith, who opted not to return this time out. Independence Day: Resurgence hits theaters June 24.
