PREVIEW: Independence Day: Resurgence

19th May 2016 Off By Daniel Jenkins

It’s been 20 years since aliens last invaded planet Earth, but it looks like they are coming back for revenge in Independence Day: Resurgence.

On June 24Jeff Goldblum and co return to see off a new threat to human civilisation as they face a back lash from an old foe from outer space.

I was a big admirer of the first one largely down to the performances of Will Smith as Captain Hiller and Goldblum as David Levinson, so when I heard they were making a sequel I was looking forward to it.

That was until I realised when reading the cast list there was no Will Smith on it. I was extremely disappointed and the anticipation I had for the film coming out started to evaporate.

I imagine many fans of the first film had similar feelings so it will be interesting to see if they can pull this off or whether it will fall foul of the sequel curse.
