There is no movie that won’t be improved by the presence of Jeff Goldblum. The latest trailer for Independence Day Resurgence looks surprisingly good with plenty of depth added by the two decades that have passed since the single alien mother ship destroyed some of Earth’s most notable landmarks. There also appears to be plenty of knowing humour to undercut this, which is probably necessary in the corniest of popcorn movies.
While mankind has utilised the alien kit left behind to enhance their technological defences, the aliens are back this time in far greater numbers. However, our laptops have vastly improved since the nineties and we may even be able to load a virus onto their ships using the WiFi.
There area number of returning faces including former president Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox and most excitingly Brent Spiner, who was apparently killed during the first film but lives to do some exposition for another day. Hey, is Will Smith around? Anyone see him? Must be busy.
New faces in the cast include Liam Hemsworth, Sela Ward, Maika Monroe and Jessie Usher.
Independence Day Resurgence arrives in theatres on 23 June 2016
