The aliens are stated to be after Earth's molten core. If that were the case, shouldn't they have tried to extract the molten core from Neptune or Pluto first? While Pluto is no longer a planet it does still have a molten core. Furthermore, since the aliens are coming from outside of our galaxy, they would have reached the far parts of our solar system first. Since the orbits of Pluto and Neptune cross paths, depending on the time the aliens arrived, they should have reached Pluto or Neptune first, then the other second, then Uranus, then Saturn, then Jupiter, then Mars. In other words, they should have stopped and extracted at all of the 6 molten cores in our solar system that they would have reached before they reached Earth. In addition to being a Character Error, this is also a plot hole. It is stated that after the last attack, the humans developed a presence on Rhea (one of Saturn's moons). This means that by the time the aliens got to Saturn, humans would have noticed them, giving them time to prepare a better defense. See more »
An extended version of the movie exists and will be released later after its initial theatrical release. Director Roland Emmerich has said: "It's only about seven minutes longer. It's interesting for fans to see which scenes we cut, although I like it when movies are short." A longer special edition of the original Independence Day was also released, which ran almost two-and-a-half hours at 145 minutes with the extended cut running for 154 minutes. See more »
