Former Disney darlings Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Tisdale showed up to support their pal Selena Gomez at her Los Angeles Revival concert Friday night. While the singer hit the stage and performed her hits - including "Same Old Love," "Come & Get It" and "Love You Like a Love Song" - in front of a sold-out crowd, the High School Musical co-stars danced and sang along in the Call It Spring takeover of Hyde Staples Center. Tisdale arrived first with her husband Christopher French, and Hudgens snapped a cute photo for the couple after she arrived with her sister, Stella. Related »

Movie Review – Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)

30 June 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Independence Day: Resurgence, 2016.

Directed by Roland Emmerich.

Starring Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, William Fichtner, Jessie T. Usher, Bill Pullman, Maika Monroe, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Brent Spiner, Joey King, Sela Ward, Vivica A. Fox, Angelababy, Nicolas Wright, Travis Tope, Judd Hirsch, and Deobia Opare.

Synopsis:

Two decades after the first Independence Day invasion, Earth is faced with a new extra-Solar threat. But will mankind’s new space defenses be enough?

Just to throw it out there, I am not really a fan of Roland Emmerich and his style of Hollywood blockbuster filmmaking, which is to basically abandon the plot and blow up every single damn thing in sight, regardless of if it is done in any sort of creative fashion at all. Towering buildings? They’re all coming down. Oceans? They’re getting swallowed up, and probably by the aforementioned towering buildings that are coming down one after the other. Landmarks?

Independence Day: Resurgence, 2016

Directed by Roland Emmerich.

Starring Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, William Fichtner, Jessie T. Usher, Bill Pullman, Maika Monroe, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Brent Spiner, Sela Ward, Joey King, Judd Hirsch and Deobia Oparei.

Synopsis:

Twenty years after their initial invasion of Earth, the aliens have returned.

(Contains Spoilers)

Make no mistake, the first Independence Day was a big ‘ol hunk of American cheese – but it was good cheese, dammit! It had likeable characters whose fate you actually cared about, it was made at a time when CGI hadn’t yet evolved to the point where you could use it as a crutch when designing action sequences, and Roland Emmerich hadn’t yet forgotten the importance of structure and (relative) subtlety when crafting a film on an enormous scale. Rather than “We had twenty years to prepare … so did they”, a more accurate tag-line for Independence Day: Resurgence would have »

Independence Day: Resurgence underwhelms at the box office

27 June 2016 4:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have had a positive review from us here at Flickering Myth, but the domestic performance of Roland Emmerich’s big budget sci-fi sequel Independence Day: Resurgence is nothing to boast about.

Opening on over 4,000 screens, Independece Day: Resurgence earned an estimated $41.6 million, placing it second behind the animated behemoth Finding Dory. With a rumoured production budget of $165 million, this is not a great opening and 20th Century Fox would have been hoping for better news.

Its CinemaScore of B- means Independence Day: Resurgence could struggle to earn $100 million domestically.

The film also opened in 57 other territories, including the UK, Korea, Mexico and Taiwan bringing its worldwide total to $143 million. Though it is slightly better news, the movie only earned $37 million in China, the second largest market (and soon to be largest). Dunan Jones’ Warcraft struggled to find an audience in North America, but its worldwide screenings (China in »

Director Roland Emmerich says Independence Day 3 would be “an intergalactic journey”

26 June 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Be warned. The following post contains spoilers for Independence Day: Resurgence

After a disappointing weekend at the Us box office, a sequel to Independence Day: Resurgence is already looking unlikely, but, if the international numbers come in stronger than expected, all hope is not lost yet. At the very least, one person is preparing for that scenario, as director of both 1996’s Independence Day and Resurgence, Roland Emmerich, teased what audiences can expect from a third film in the franchise during a recent interview with Empire.

On his plans for Independence Day 3, Emmerich told the outlet, “The next one will be an intergalactic journey. It’ll be [set] maybe a year or two later, not 20 years [on]. I want to maintain this group of people, especially the young characters, and Jeff [Goldblum] and Brent [Spiner] will take part in it. It’ll be fun to keep that group together. I imagine them now »

Posterized: Roland Emmerich

25 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

With 60 year old German director Roland Emmerich's latest sci-fi world-in-peril disaster flick opening (that'd be Independence Day: Resurgence) let's look back at his career for this week's Posterized! But first here's a really cute photo of the director with actress Joey King tying his shoes. (She's made two of his movies back to back now as she was also in Stonewall)

In poster form, at least, Emmerich's careers looks a lot a pitch perfect example of how capitalism works in Tinsletown, when they poach genre directors from other countries »

“Independence Day: Resurgence” hopes to capture nostalgia 20 years later

24 June 2016 12:37 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

You could generously call the decision to hide Independence Day: Resurgence from critics an “unconventional” choice. 20th Century Fox initially wasn’t screening the movie at all before it opened, then opted to only show it earlier today at a press screening hours after it hit screens, that’s not much of a sign of confidence. It’s odd too, considering how well regarded the original is and how well nostalgia worked for Jurassic World last year. Well, I hate to be the one to say it, but they were right to hide this one. It’s out now and likely will do strong business, but the quality drop between Independence Day and Independence Day: Resurgence is staggering. What a shame too. I’m sure everyone knows what this flick is about, but just quickly, I’ll state the obvious that it’s a sequel to the disaster epic that »

How actors are told they’re being killed off in Game of Thrones – exclusive interview

21 June 2016 1:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This article contains spoilers for Season 6 of Game of Thrones

During Flickering Myth’s chat with DeObia Oparei about Independence Day: Resurgence, the actor’s previous role before the science fiction blockbuster came up: Areo Hotah in HBO’s fantasy drama Game of Thrones.

Despite being a narrative presence in the book, the character was somewhat sidelined for the television adaptation. And just the week before we spoke, Hotah had been unceremoniously killed off at the beginning of Season 6.

“Yeah, I was disappointed,” Oparei revealed. “I didn’t expect that. I kind of heard about it a few months before we started shooting season 6. And, of course, I’d read the books, and Areo is quite a presence in the books, so I was expecting that to follow through. But also I think it’s really difficult to bring a whole new clan in a story that’s five seasons in, »

Exclusive: Alien 3 set was “very, very tense,” reveals actor DeObia Oparei

21 June 2016 1:31 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During Flickering Myth’s chat with DeObia Oparei about Independence Day: Resurgence, the actor’s onscreen debut came up: another science fiction movie, Alien 3.

The 1992 film’s production was marred by frequent clashes between first-time feature director David Fincher and the ever-present 20th Century Fox’s studio executives on set.

“I think it was quite a tense set,” Opearei remembered. “I mean, that was my first film and I was quite young – about 21 or 22 – and suddenly I’m in the middle of this huge movie, and I think Sigourney Weaver said that was the first time that she was not just the star in it, but one of the producers of it, too. And it was David Fincher’s first film. He’d just done a music video. I think he’d just come off of one of Madonna’s videos. I think that was his first feature. So »

Movie Review – Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)

20 June 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Independence Day: Resurgence (2016).

Directed by Roland Emmerich.

Starring Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, William Fichtner, Jessie T. Usher, Bill Pullman, Maika Monroe, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Brent Spiner, Joey King, Judd Hirsch and Deobia Oparei.

Synopsis:

Humanity won round one. But now, 20 years later, the aliens are back…and then some.

The President of the United States (Sela Ward) walks through a nuclear bunker, flanked by military officials and advisors on either side. It’s been 20 years since the War of ’96 (Independence Day: Resurgence’s name for the events of the first movie), yet despite Earth’s efforts to prepare for another attack, an invading alien force is descending upon the planet.

“The ship will touch down over the Atlantic, ma’am,” one of the high and tight haired men informs.

“Which part?” replies the President.

“All of it.”

It’s the best line in the film, and one delivered with utter straight-faced seriousness. »

New clip from Independence Day: Resurgence is ‘Bigger Than the Last One’

20 June 2016 2:55 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Independence Day: Resurgence set for release on Friday (and our review coming once the embargo is up in a few hours), 20th Century Fox has released a new clip from the sci-fi blockbuster sequel entitled ‘Bigger Than the Last One’.

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.
