The Aliens Are Back in a Huge New Trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

Seriously, this trailer is huge—not just due to the scale of the latest alien invasion to befall planet Earth, but because this five-minute long trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence is jam-packed with new footage from the film.


It’s the pretty traditional “Let’s sum up the whole plot of this movie” trailer, as we get to see a complacent mankind in the wake of the 20th anniversary of the events from the first movie, before Jeff Goldblum’s David Levinson finds an alien ship on Earth transmitting a distress signal. The aliens are definitely back for revenge, and... well, you know what happens next.

Things get destroyed, Bill Pullman gets thrown about by an alien, and everyone remembers that yes, this will be our Independence Day and all that. You know the drill at this point! But it’s still looking pretty fun.

Independence Day: Resurgence hits theaters June 24th.

So I guess every single freaking trailer is gonna have the little “ding” piano sound at the beginning of it like “The Force Awakens” trailer from now on. Hollywood is so unoriginal they can't even make a 2 minute trailer different from others.
