  • "Independence Day Resurgence" is an upcoming American science fiction disaster film and a sequel to the box-office movie "Independence Day."

    The setting will take place 20 years after the events of the first film, with the United Nations creating Earth Space Defense (ESD), which serves as the planet's early warning system and the main defensive force using technology that was salvaged from the remains of the alien force. However, it turned out that the aliens were able to send distress signal to their other batallion before their defeat while others went into hiding elsewhere around the world. Receiving the distress signal, other aliens from deep space will send larger battle fleet, which will provide another big threat to the human race.

    With Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman reprising their roles plus the additon of skilled actor Liam Hemsworth, this movie promises to bring the same thrill that was provided by the "Independence Day."
