All your favourite characters are back for the belated sequel to Independence Day – now subtitled Independence Day: Resurgence; you know there’s that guy – is it Ian Malcolm? No…ehhh…and The President played by Bill Pullman…Paxton…no definitely Pullman. Brent Spiner is making a return too and it’s always nice to see him working. Not returning is Will Smith who went on to have a very successful movie career following his appearance in ID4. Joining the cast are a bunch of hip young performers including Joey King and Liam Hemsworth as well as veteran performers Sela Ward and William Fichtner.
Roland Emmerich is back in the director’s chair for what’s proposed to be the first part of a new trilogy. If there’s an appetite for this then he might finally get a new Stargate movie off the ground which would be…swell.
Independence Day: Resurgence arrives in cinemas on 24 June 2016
