'Independence Day 2' Trailer Playing with 'Terminator Genisys' This Weekend?

3 July 2015 5:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, the cast and crew of Independence Day: Resurgence held a live streaming Q&A session straight from the set in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where the official title was revealed and fans got their first look at some of the vehicles being used in the action sequel. With tomorrow marking America's annual Independence Day holiday, Ain't It Cool News reports that fans who see Terminator Genisys will be treated to the first teaser trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence. The trailer will only be shown on July 4, and there is also a "good chance" that this first look at the sequel will be online later today.

Production has only been under way for a few weeks, so it seems unlikely that any actual footage will be shown in this teaser. As for what will be shown, that is unclear. But we already saw the official Independence Day: Resurgence logo in »

Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth Goof Off on 'Independence Day Resurgence' Set

3 July 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Fighting aliens is hard work, and sometimes you just need to let off a little steam.

That was no doubt part of the inspiration behind a candid moment captured recently on the "Independence Day Resurgence" set, as returning star Jeff Goldblum, posing in front of a spacecraft, was photobombed by co-star Liam Hemsworth. The goofy snap, which Goldblum shared on his new Facebook page, gives fans yet another a glimpse at the playful nature that's part of the film's production, and offers hope that the hotly-anticipated sequel to 1996's "Independence Day" won't take itself too seriously.

So there I was thinking about how I would save mankind when this guy photobombs me. Oh, why hello Facebook, nice to finally meet you. #Idr

'Independence Day' Sequel Gets 'Resurgence' Title, New Photo

23 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Just over a year from the film's release, Fox has announced a new, improved title for "Independence Day 2," and offered up the first photo from the long-awaited sequel.

The flick is now known as "Independence Day Resurgence," and what it's missing in punctuation (seriously, there should be a colon after "Day," right?), it more than makes up for in casting. Nearly every big name from the first film -- save for the glaring omission of too-expensive Will Smith -- is returning for the follow-up, including Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, and Judd Hirsch.

Joining those familiar faces this time around are series newcomers Liam Hemsworth, Sela Ward (who's replacing Pullman as Potus), Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Joey King, and Maika Monroe. "Resurgence" centers around the people of Earth bracing for another alien attack, since the distress call that the first wave of aliens sent out during the »

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.

In an Instagram post, producer Dean Devlin -- who also co-wrote and produced the 1996 original -- shared a snap of star Jeff Goldblum, who's reprising his role as scientist David Levinson for the flick. "Hanging with David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum) 20 years later is a dream come true!" Devlin captioned the photo.

"Dream come true" could also describe "Independence Day 2"'s very existence, since it's been in the works on and off for close to two decades now, with numerous stops and starts -- remember when it was supposed to be split into two films? »

Roland Emmerich Adds Another To Independence Day 2

14 May 2015 2:23 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The most recent piece of Independence Day 2 casting news kicked off an almighty social media storm, with Maika Monroe seemingly stepping into the role once played by Mae Whitman. But unless someone has a weird personal animus against eight-year-old actresses, Mckenna Grace’s addition to Roland Emmerich’s should pass by without causing the same tumult.The actress, a veteran of Disney’s live-action/puppetry show Crash & Bernstein, will slot in alongside fellow newbies Monroe and Liam Hemsworth and plays someone called Daisy. We don’t know what her character will be getting up to yet, but it’s highly unlikely she’ll be a fighter pilot.The remaining cast members are a mix of other fresh recruits (Jessie Usher, Travis Tope, Joey King, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Lance Lim, Sela Ward) and veterans of the first film (Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Judd Hirsch), hoping to fill the big Will Smith-shaped gap. »

The upcoming "Independence Day" sequel is getting a dose of girl power in the White House: Actress Sela Ward has been tapped to play the president of the United States in "Independence Day 2."

In addition to Ward, fellow fresh faces joining the cast include "Hunger Games" star Liam Hemsworth (playing Whitmore's son-in-law), Jessie Usher (playing a grown-up version of Will Smith's stepson from the first flick), Charlotte Gainsbourg ("Nymphomaniac"), and Joey King ("Wish I Was Here"). Returnees from the original include Jeff Goldblum, Judd Hirsch, and Vivica A. Fox.

Sela Ward Playing The Us President In Independence Day 2

4 May 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Independence Day had Bill Pullman’s President Thomas J. Whitmore around to rally humanity and fight the aliens. But unless the universe in which the film takes place has very different rules governing Us presidents, he can’t still be the leader of the free world 20 years later. And indeed it’s true – Sela Ward will be President Lanford in Independence Day 2.She’ll be the White House incumbent – we assume the place has been rebuilt since the original attack – for the story of Earth having to fend off the next wave of extra-terrestrial invasion attempts. Ward is one of the new faces for the franchise, joining the likes of Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jessie Usher, Travis Tope and Joey King, alongside returning cast members Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Judd Hirsch and Brent Spiner.Emmerich has been developing this one for a while now, working »
