The Independence Day sequel is shooting now in Albuquerque, and Fox invited journalists to set this week to reveal some of the first information about the film. As part of the studio’s set visit turned press day, writer/director Roland Emmerich took park in a live-streamed press conference with cast members Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner, Angelababy, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward, Jessie Usher and Liam Hemsworth.

First Independence Day 2 poster cut

When Roland Emmerich first unleashed Independence Day on the world in 1996, major cities were under attack. Washington DC, New York, Los Angeles — each city was leveled when a city-sized spaceship set off a blast over an iconic building. In Independence Day 2, it seems that idea is being expanded globally. A nice licensing poster for the film shows the aliens back in Earth space, but not floating over cities. This time, they’re floating over the entire planet.

Below, check out the first Independence Day 2 poster and read a synopsis that offers a few more details. Read More »
