First ‘Independence Day 2’ trailer is bigger and has more Jeff Goldblum

The first Independence Day: Resurgence trailer premiered last night, and we see that the aliens come back for revenge, and Jeff Goldblum is back to fight them with science.

It’s been 20 years in the making, but we finally have our first trailer for the upcoming Independence Day sequel. Watch Jeff Goldblum and Liam Hemsworth save the world from aliens.

It wouldn’t seem like there is anywhere to go with a sequel to the iconic 1996 film, but with Goldblum and Bill Pullman being joined by Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth, we imagine the writers will find a way to keep us entertained.

The trailer shows a massive alien attack, with a ship that looks like it’s nearly the size of Earth. While it won’t win any Oscars, it’ll be fun to see Goldblum and Pullman back in action as they attempt to defeat the second coming of aliens.

It’s also nice to hear Bill Pullman’s epic monologue from the first film playing over the first trailer for the sequel, as it became quite the memorable speech back in ’96. Apparently they’ve used alien technology to advance Earth’s defences, but without Will Smith, what will we do?

Independence Day 2 premieres on June 24, 2016.

The film’s official synopsis:

“We always knew they were coming back. After INDEPENDENCE DAY redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.”
