Jeff Goldblum spent 20 years getting the planet ready after Earth was first invaded: now, the aliens are back. The first trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence has arrived!


The trailer for this looks like it’ll be quite a bit of fun, with all the beats of the original, and then some. We’re treated to the original film’s iconic speech, along with a montage of scenes showing off just how much has changed in two decades. In the years since, it looks like humanity has adopted the alien’s technology into our own, but even though we’ve been getting ready for another invasion, it isn’t quite enough.

Here’s the full trailer:

Independence Day: Resurgence will hit theaters on June 24, 2016

See, there are so many things about the original Independence Day that don’t quite make sense. For example: those alien ships were gigantic. And then they all crashed. There must have been massive casualties! Or did they all simply crash into the ocean?

And there’s another thing: all of those ships were probably filled with aliens? But the bomb just brought down the ships themselves, it didn’t kill the aliens inside. So were millions of aliens just, you know, rounded up? Or they all just commit suicide?

But also, I just find it hilarious that a goddamn computer virus brought down alien ships. Which OS do you think the ships were running? I mean, they probably never updated their patches, right? Totally vulnerable to computer viruses.
