Over the summer, a live streaming press conference introduced everyone to the cast of Independence Day 2, officially titled Independence Day: Resurgence (or IDR for those who were a fan of the ID4 shorthand for the original 1996 blockbuster). In that little event, we also learned some key details about the setting for the sequel, but with regards to the plot, we’re still largely in the dark.
But hopefully we’ll learn a little more about IDR this winter as director Roland Emmerich recently revealed in an interview that the Independence Day 2 trailer release will be right around Christmas. But that’s not all the director had to say about the sequel. Read More »

When Roland Emmerich first unleashed Independence Day on the world in 1996, major cities were under attack.
