Independence Day: Resurgence won’t release until June 24, 2016, but the first trailer is finally here and it’s pretty amazing to watch. Check it out!
If you had any doubts about the Independence Day sequel going on without Will Smith, then chances are this trailer for the highly anticipated next chapter will blow them all away. Not only do we get our first look at almost all of the original characters, but we even get to see new (and handsome) faces like Liam Hemsworth.
The first familiar face we see? Jeff Goldblum, who many will remember as Will’s on-screen partner in saving the world back in 1996. A moment later is when we see Liam, one of the many new additions to the cast, in a military uniform that is sure to delight the ladies in the audience. It doesn’t take long for Bill Pullman and Judd Hirsch to appear as well, and you will even recognize Joey King riding on a school bus despite her horror at the aliens flying overhead.
Another thing lovers of the first film will recognize while watching the trailer? The overall look and feel of the film. It’s almost exactly the same as the first, with it’s dark tones and even the iconic speech Bill Pullman’s character, then President Thomas J. Whitmore, gives right before the victorious battle scene against the aliens.
