One of the most iconic Super Bowl spots of all time was the tease for the original Independence Day, 20 years ago this year. Therefore it only makes sense that 20th Century Fox would bring a tease for the sequel Independence Day: Resurgence to Super Bowl 50, and it did not disappoint in showing the return of the most deadly aliens Earth has ever faced. Take a look at the Independence Day Resurgence Super Bowl spot below!
Here’s the Independence Day Resurgence Super Bowl spot from Fox:
Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Brent Spiner, Judd Hirsch and Vivica A. Fox reprise their roles from the original movie while new characters are played by Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Liam Hemsworth and Sela Ward. Sadly, Will Smith is not returning, and early viral marketing has indicated that his character, Steven Hiller, has died in the years since the events of the original movie.
At the very least, this looks just as fun as the first movie. While the absence of Will Smith is a bit disappointing, the movie now has the opportunity to focus on the new cast members to allow for a true ensemble movie. That’s exactly how the first movie was since Smith wasn’t a bonafide superstar on the big screen yet, and it should serve the sequel well. But I’m willing to bet that not all of the characters who survived the first movie will make it through the second invasion.
Come back tomorrow for a round of exclusive interviews with almost all of the main cast members from Independence Day: Resurgence, as well as director Roland Emmerich, straight from the set of the sequel. We’ll also have plenty more from the set of the movie, including a tease of just how massive the invasion will be this time.
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.
