Independence Day 2 Gets Official Release Date

Posted June 21, 2013 05:08 PM by Webmaster

20th Century Fox20th Century Fox announced earlier today that the highly anticipated sequel to German director Roland Emmerich's mega-blockbuster Independence Day will arrive in U.S. theaters on July 3, 2015. Director Emmerich will once again be behind the camera, but at the moment it is unclear whether any members of the original cast will be back.

The first film, which was released in 1996, was based on a script by Dean Devlin and director Emmerich. Its cast included Will Smith, Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Mary McDonnell, Randy Quaid, Robert Loggia, Vivica A. Fox, and Adam Baldwin.

Independence Day is already out on Blu-ray courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. See our listing and review of this release here.

I'm curious as to what the aliens will do this time. Send a larger armada? Double up the security? Take up smoking cigars?

"The outline for the planned trilogy that was floating around back in the late 90's was basically this...
10-20 years after the invasion, a United Earth has largely rebuilt, and made a lot of technological advances more on par with the invaders.
We're contacted by other races, and find ourselves swept up in a larger conflict with more races of Aliens even worse than the previous Invaders, unable to know who to trust, and who is simply trying to use Earth as a proxy war-zone for species and conflicts far beyond our understanding.
The third film would jump even further ahead in time with Earth becoming a Galactic Power in it's own right, and having to try to keep from becoming like the Invaders in the first place."

That has A LOT of potential, don't have the greatest faith in Emmerich, but maybe he'll surprise us.

I heard one possible story could be the alien's home planet/counterparts across the galaxy find out about what happens and are naturally upset - the fastest way for them to cross the galaxy or universe - depending on where they hail from - would be a worm hole. Due to light-speed theory, that "short" trip through the worm-hole would take the 20 or so years since the last event in the 90's.

Not too long ago Bill Pullman said he would be returning and the reason in the story for him to be back would make sense when we saw it.

The new plot has to be careful that it's not a copy of Falling Skies, so it can't be about different alien species living with, but also competing with humans on a largely destroyed planet.

But it also has to be real in terms of what got rebuilt, since it takes us a year to replace a bad escalator on the subway and it's taken 12 years to rebuild the WTC and it's still not finished, we're obviously incapable of rebuilding large swaths of the planet in 20 years (although the Chinese are better at it than we are).

Personally, I think the White House should still be under reconstruction 20 years from now. There should be scaffolding all around it. The President (played by Will Smith, natch) should be living in a Winnebago parked in the driveway of the White House. Of course, a door in the Winnebago (probably the bathroom door) leads to an underground command center where we helplessly track an endless supply of aliens who have come to earth.

In the intervening 20 years, other aliens have come and even though we have a President, we are virtual slaves to the aliens. The President is advised by a very old man who lives in a cave and wears robes, played by Bill Pullman. We've been doing alien laundry for 20 years. But when they return, they've forgotten their ticket so they're screwed. (With apologies to Woody Allen.)

This is the work of Will Smith, I am certain, replaying After Earth on a larger scale. The extended timeframe allows for him to have a son and daughter who are now candidates in the Earth Self Defence League, Smith pere playing a much revered people's hero and now maverick commander of The Maurauders. The film is actually a coming-of-age story and the struggles of a family torn apart by divided loyalties set against the backdrop of a civil war thatis set to break out between the members of the Galactic Alliance. Also present is the son of beloved lifetime President, portrayed by popular actor Channing Tatum who is headstrong impulsive but ultimately a charismatic leader who comes to the fore.

Also some aliens and explosions

This might be another one of those Emmerich movies that I just have to take the pain pill and enjoy it, and pretend the guy doesn't exist, like with 2012. He seems to get more brazen with the ideological thumbs in the eye with every movie he makes, and of course gloats and celebrates the thumbs in his commentaries.

I'm not surprised at all. I'm actually surprised it took this long for a sequel. I remember reading a book, shortly after the movie came out at the theatre, that was a sequel to the movie. One of those mass market paperbacks but it was a sequel non-the-less. I can't remember the plot right now, but I remember that it wasn't half bad. Maybe the plot will be based off of that.

@jrrrz: Check again. JP4 "was" scheduled for 2015. It even sounded pretty convincing this time. But, it's been postponed yet again: Apparently they still have found a good script.

I'm starting to think studios make these tentative announcements just to gauge interest, before they commit big bucks to another mega-budget cgifest. If so, judging by the reaction here, ID4 2 is likely to get "postponed" too.

Hmmm, another sequel nobody wants and nobody has asked for. The shot of the White House blowing up added milions to the first film's box-office. These days such spectacle is so common it's more likely to elicit yawns, and all the famous monuments were destroyed in the first film so what else is there to blow up?

LOL at the fantrolls here trying to vote down any negative comment. I'm counteracting them by voting them up again. I liked the first film, but for purely subjective reasons. With the exception of David Arnold's score and some excellent visual effects (mixed with some not so excellent effects) it really isn't a particularly good movie at all.

I think a lot of the movie viewing public has grown up since the days of ID4 and all of the big blow-up films that are more style over substance these days.. If there was an actually compelling story line to these films in 2013 then I don't think I would be minding them as much now. I said this in a way back on the message boards for the latest Emmerich film "White House Down" where I don't see it much more as a generic actioneer, and I think that will come out with ID4 V2. Now if there was a message that Emmerich will be trying to parley to the audience then it might be something different.. Who knows I might be proven wrong for a change.. I don't think everything the man does is on the level of a M. Night Shyamalan where he at least tried something different with Anonymous (What if Shakespear never wrote any of his greatest works) It's just everything that he's gone back to over and over again lowers his stock as a visionary director..
