A giant, reptilian monster surfaces, leaving destruction in its wake as it strides into New York City. To stop it, an earthworm scientist, his reporter ex-girlfriend, and other unlikely heroes team up to save their city.
Jack Hall, paleoclimatologist, must make a daring trek from Washington, D.C. to New York City to reach his son, trapped in the cross-hairs of a sudden international storm which plunges the planet into a new Ice Age.
As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.
Two decades after the freak alien invasion that nearly destroyed mankind a new threat emerges. This Alien mothership is more than twice the size as the last one and once again, the world's armies must band together to save the world. Do they have enough firepower or will this battle change and will aliens take over?
Roland Emmerich said in an interview with Empire magazine that a third film would be made contingent on the box-office success of this sequel. Emmerich also indicated that there would not be as long a period between sequels if another installment is green-lit. See more »
(at around 47 mins) When Julius is seen piloting his boat, he's in the cabin steering. The tidal wave from the incoming alien craft rises up behind him, slams forward, cut away. When the kids are driving by afterward, they find him strapped into the fishing chair on the upper deck, unconscious. 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 »
Bad sequel don't watch it (unless you are a Disney Star Wars sucker in that case buy two DVDs!)
Modern Hollywood does not know how to make a good movie and they hire the likes of Jar Jar Abrams to remake everything and make endless sequels. This is another movie that truly destroys its prequel and I will not be surprised if the next Independence day appears in 2022.
