Independence Day 2 is really getting underway
Looks like we will see the long-awaited sequel to the 1996 monster hit "Independence Day." That movie was a movie I watched quite a bit growing up, and it is still a movie I admire quite a bit. I have waited and waited for a sequel. As a youngster, I thought it was inevitable to make a sequel, but for some reason it never happened. Now, finally, in 2015 I will lay eyes to this film.
The sequel is planned for a July 3rd 2015 release.
2015 is already shaping up to be a crazy year for movie geeks everywhere. Not only will we get "Independence Day 2" but also "Avengers 2," "Avatar 2," "Star Wars: Episode VII," "Jurassic Park 4" and potentially a "Justice League" movie. It's going to be a crazy year if each of those films can live up to their true potential. I am already very giddy to see that year play out on film!
Director Roland Emmerich will return to direct the sequel. However, we do not know yet if any of the big cast such as Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum or anybody else will return who survived the first film. Emmerich has already clarified that Will Smith will not be participating. (His role may have been important in the first film, but I for one, am glad he is NOT returning.) Time shall tell us what will come of the actors.
Emmerich has discussed ideas about the sequel. About how the movie will take place in present-day. And that the world has tried to evolve and re-create the alien technology. So expect a very different image of Earth in this upcoming movie. Should be very exciting!
