Independence Day Resurgence feels like someone took the original film and fast forwarded to only the action scenes. Maybe that sounds good to you, and certainly the sequel’s epic scope exceeds its predecessor. But without characters that mean anything to us, there’s no drama or tension to the second round of this…
When Independence Day Resurgence hits theaters on June 24, 20 years (almost exactly!) will have passed both on screen and off since the first film. That’s a long time, but for co-writer and director Roland Emmerich, the wait was a necessary evil.
The cast and crew of The Hunger Games visited Hall H at Comic-Con for the final time Thursday afternoon to promote the final film in the franchise, Mockingjay Part 2. It was highlighted by a brand new trailer whose action was simply beyond epic.
The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 will finally see Katniss and her crew travel to the Capitol and bring the fight to President Snow on his home turf. Now, a set of eight character posters gives us a hint at the war paint of the revolution.
And that's not all. A relatively unknown name — Jessie Usher — has been cast to take over for Will Smith as his son.
