Though movement is reportedly taking place on two sequels to Roland Emmerich’s 1996 disaster sci-fi film Independence Day, it appears that 20th Century Fox has had a change of heart regarding a 3D re-release of the original.  The post-converted iteration of the Will Smith-starrer had been slated for release on July 3, 2013, but Exhibitor Relations broke the news on Twitter that Fox has now decided not to release the pic.  I’m not sure how far along the conversion had gone, but no reason for the change of heart is given.  This now leaves the 2013 Fourth of July weekend open to Despicable Me 2 and The Lone Ranger. »
