The highs and lows of the soft movie reboot

21 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This summer has seen Mad Max, Jurassic World and Terminator movies hit cinemas. Ryan looks at what’s good and bad about the soft reboot...

This piece contains mild spoilers for Jurassic World, Mad Max: Fury Road and Terminator: Genisys

If the sequel was a late 20th century phenomenon, ushered into being thanks to the likes of James Bond, The Godfather and Planet Of The Apes, then the soft reboot is a peculiar product of the 21st.

Unlike a conventional remake or reboot, which often abandon characters, plots and settings in favour of an entirely new approach, the soft reboot is less drastic. Jj Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek movie is a prime example; it casts new actors in the roles of the Original Series’ famous roster of characters - Chris Pine replacing William Shatner as Kirk, Zachary Quinto replacing Leonard Nimoy as Spock, and so on - and sends them »

Independence Day: Resurgence: Why Will Smith Opted Out

24 June 2015 9:02 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Independence Day sequel, now officially titled Independence Day: Resurgence, is bringing back Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Judd Hirsch and Brent Spiner, so it’s especially tough to overlook Will Smith’s absence. After the live portion of Monday’s Q&A, Roland Emmerich and the cast hung around to answer a handful of questions from the press on set and someone asked Emmerich about Smith’s choice to pass. Here’s what he said: “Well, you know, like near the very beginning, I wanted to work with him and he was very excited to be in it, but then after a while, you know, he just was tired of sequels and he did another science fiction film, which was his father-son story, so he opted out. I was first very disappointed, but then actually a couple friends told me, ‘Well, this could be a great chance to try something new, »

Some images were also shared featuring Emmerich on the set and a practical "Moon Tug". We've also included a piece of concept art.

I'm always on board for a big, fun alien invasion movie and it's easy to forget just how big of a phenomenon the first Independence Day was when it was released back in 1996. The aliens that film depicted were dead seat on f*ucking out sh*t up.

Why Will Smith Isn't In Independence Day: Resurgence

23 June 2015 7:56 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Jeff Goldblum is back. Bill Pullman has returned. Randy Quaid isn.t here, but he has a semi-valid excuse. So why didn.t original Independence Day star Will Smith return to the franchise that helped launch his big-screen career, now that Roland Emmerich has gathered the gang once again, 20 years later, for Independence Day: Resurgence? The answer is complicated. During a press event on behalf of the launch of the anticipated sequel, Emmerich addressed the absence of his A-list star. The way that the director recounted, Smith initially was very excited about returning to Independence Day, where he.d once again play courageous fighter pilot Captain Steven Hiller. Emmerich told us that the sequel was going to have a father-son aspect to it, with young Jessie Usher cast as Hiller.s child, Dylan. Vivica A. Fox even agreed to return as former-stripper Jasmine. The family unit was basically intact »

Independence Day Sequel Gets a Title and Official Synopsis

23 June 2015 6:03 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Last night, a live chat with the cast and crew of Roland Emmerich's new Independence Day movie took place and delivered our first look at the movie via props, concept art, and our first information on the plot via a swanky new synopsis.  Come inside to check it all out!

Independence Day was a huge deal back when it first released, and I remember it very well.  The VFX took disaster movies to an entirely different level and helped spur a new shift in blockbuster films.  It's been a long time, however, and many have questioned the need for a sequel, feeling the time for it has passed.  While I have my own reservations about that, there's a big part of me that can't help but be excited.  Last night brought new information on the upcoming film (aside from new and returning cast members), including the film's official title. »

Roland Emmerich has destroyed the planet more times than we’ve had hot dinners, and we’ve had at least ten hot dinners. Shares in reconstruction firms will be skyrocketing again at the sight of this first concept art from his latest blockbuster, the freshly unveiled Independence Day Resurgence. Yes, our favourite Stuttgarter has found a way to blow up gravity too. Click on the image, exclusive to the issue of Empire, for a closer look at the eyeball-dazzling mayhem in store. Independence Day Resurgence is set 20 years after the events of the original, with humanity banding together to fight off a new wave of alien invaders. "We call it in the film the War of '96," said the director at the film’s unveiling. “It’s like a post-World generation that’s unified, and that's amazing to see a world come together with a common enemy. That's a resurgence. »

Nearly two decades after Independence Day wowed audiences with its winning combination of X-Files fuelled UFO interest, grand scale disaster movie spectacle, Top Gun style aerial heroics and Big Willy Smith himself, Roland Emmerich has called action on a sequel, which shall henceforth be known as Independence Day: Resurgence.Jeff Goldblum cemented his position as Hollywood's go-to A-List boffin/sceptic during the 1990s, thanks to his role as Chaos Theorist Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park and The Lost World, as well as in Independence Day. Goldblum will be reprising his role as David Levinson for Idr (which I'm guessing we are to call the sequel to ID4), alongside Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Brent Spiner and Vivica A. Fox.
