Independence Day 2 Poster Ups The Stakes

9 June 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Looks like the aliens have their sights set a little higher than the White House this time – the first poster for Independence Day 2 finds that dreaded world-destroying ship about to blast its way to Earth’s core.

A few days back, we got an official synopsis for the blockbuster sequel, which will again be directed by Roland Emmerich, that promises destruction on a planetary scale, and the marketing department evidently saw that and decided to mess around with its poster. Here’s that synopsis again:

After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe 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. »

Independence Day 2 Synopsis Revealed

8 June 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Independence Day 2 has been busily filling out its cast over the past few weeks, recruiting a mixture of fresh faces and old faithfuls to power the second entry in what is planned as a blockbuster franchise. Now, a information sheet for Fox’s upcoming schedule has shed some light on the plot of the follow-up.

Though the information sheet synopsis isn’t quite an official one, it does give an idea of what fans can expect from the sequel:

After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe 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.

Bumblebee cameo spotted in set video from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

8 June 2015 5:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There had been talk from Paramount executives about their franchise movies not being in a shared universe when saying plans for movies like a Transformers and G.I. Joe crossover would probably never happen. However, it does seem as though Transformers exist in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle universe, as evident by a set video taken by this chap.

In the video, someone in a Bumblebee outfit during a Halloween parade high fives Noel Fisher, who plays Michelangelo in the movie. So, the Transformers certainly exist in their universe, even if it’s just the Michael Bay produced films.

Check it out below:

#Bumblebee cameo in #TMNT2 ; seen here hi-5ing #NoelFisher ‘s #Michaelangelo during a costume parade (fitting considering that both franchises are produced by the same company #PlatinumDunes #Paramount )

A Prison Break Limited Series Is In Development At Fox

3 June 2015 4:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The commissioning of television projects is always a gamble. A pitch that sounded like a guaranteed win can all too easily become the first casualty of pilot season, if the magic formula of talent – both onscreen and off – is not achieved. In these uncertain economic times, when regular broadcast channels are competing more and more with original content produced by streaming platforms, such as Netflix and Amazon, an aversion to such risk could well explain the current trend of revisiting past glories. As The X Files gears up for a limited season, and a 24 spin-off is rumoured, TVLine has exclusively revealed that the popular Fox series Prison Break is also officially in development for a limited series.

Prison Break began airing in January 2006, and quickly found a fan-base with its increasingly claustrophobic tale of conspiracy, political intrigue and family drama. Starring Wentworth Miller as Michael Scofield and Dominic Purcell as his brother, »

Roland Emmerich Adds William Fichtner To Independence Day 2

31 May 2015 10:44 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It’s always good news when we learn that William Fichtner has been added to a film, and one of the charter members of Empire’s 27 Per Cent-ers’ Club (actors who make a film 27 per cent better just by showing up and doing their thing) has joined the cast of Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day 2. Welcoming William Fichtner to the cast of #IndependenceDay2 pic.twitter.com/kQyN8B3hGz— Roland Emmerich (@rolandemmerich) May 29, 2015While Emmerich’s announcement carries no character details, Deadline has dug up that Fichtner will be a high-ranking general in the film, with the additional wrinkle that he’s also signed for two more movies in the Independence Day universe, which would expand his role. Though there had been chatter about two sequel films shot back to back when ID 2 was first mooted, that has since been scaled down to the one current sequel now in production. »

As William Fichtner becomes the latest to join Independence Day 2, a new report suggests that two further movies are also on the way...

It's taken director Roland Emmerich and 20th Century Fox some time to finally get going on a sequel to 1996's Independence Day. The original movie was a huge hit, and the plan that was doing the rounds for some time was for two sequels to it - ID4Ever Part 1 and 2, if memory serves.

Now, some two decades later, production is finally getting under way on Independence Day 2, and the impression was that this would be a single sequel.

However, Deadline is now reporting that plans are apparently in place for two more sequels, Independence Day 3 and Independence Day 4.
