After seeing Independence Day film release back 1996, I have been a fan of this film and watched it many times over the past two decades. I was hoping there would be a sequel for this film. At last, it finally in production and will be release in theater during Summer 2016.
Of course, we are left with many questions where the movie left off. However the sequel will take you 20 years after the arrival of outer space guests, the ALIENS! We all know that Col. Hiller (Will Smith) will not be appearing in this film. However, 20th Century Fox did the audience a favor by highlighting important events by providing a minisite of what has happen during the 20 years. It’s a great website and there will be another blog about the concept behind this web design/development. According to this minisite, it appears that Col. Hiller died in Alien Tech Malfunction on April 27, 2007. For other events that has been highlighted during 20 years gap that went missing, check out the minisite here.
We always knew they were coming back. After INDEPENDENCE DAY redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.
Based on the synopsis provided, we definitely know it’s not over even from watching the first film. I’m actually pumped and can’t wait to go to the theater to watch it. I hope it will meet my expectation and leave no room for disappointment. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter!
