Independence Day: Resurgence – The War of 1996
20th Century Fox earlier this week released a new video of a fictional news report that gives you a look back and a small look forward of what we might expect from Independence Day: Resurgence.
The fictional news network “United World News” gives us a twentieth anniversary retrospective of the events depicted in the original movie, Independence Day. The video details how the Earth was changed with the introduction of the Alien technology all stemming from the aftermath of the War of 1996.
I find these types of videos released by the movie studios as a fun and unique way of getting you hyped for their film with out having to bombard you with another trailer that may give more of the movie away before it ever hits theaters.
We always knew they were coming back. After INDEPENDENCE DAY redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle 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.
