Independence Day: Resurgence Extended Trailer (2016)
Extended Trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence.
Twenty years after the events of the first film, the international community recovers and the United Nations creates the Earth Space Defense (ESD), a united global defense program that serves as Earth's early warning system and the main defense force using technology salvaged from remains of the alien forces, with some military forces assembled on the Moon, Mars and Rhea. However, the aliens were able to send a distress signal to their other battalions before their final defeat while others went into hiding elsewhere around the world. The aliens in deep space received the signal and sent a larger and more powerful battle fleet, threatening the human race once more. This time, with a gravitational machine.
The full title, Independence Day: Resurgence, was revealed on June 22, 2015. Returns, Retaliation, Rises, and Requiem were all considered to along with the title before settling with Resurgence.
Filming began on April 20, 2015, and wrapped on August 22, 2015. Filming of additional scenes also took place in early 2016 in Los Angeles. Some scenes have also been filmed in London, at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai and Singapore's Marina Bay Sands.
The film was originally going to be released on July 3, 2015. On November 12, 2013, it was announced that the first sequel had been rescheduled for a July 2016 release. On October 14, 2014, Fox changed the release date to June 24, 2016.
It is not too often that a major studio releases an extended trailer like this for a blockbuster hit. I am not sure if they did because they are confident in the quality of the film or they are nervous and are getting a bit desperate.
But, it does look like Independence Day: Resurgence is trying to compete with other major blockbuster films for having the most collateral damage to planet Earth. Is there even going to be anything left on our planet to salvage if we defeat the aliens this time?
This trailer walks a fine line of showing a ton of footage without trying to give away too much of the film. I was nervous that it would show too much, but it definitely concentrates heavily of the first act in the film, it feels like we just watched the first 3 minutes of the film along with some scenes we have already seen in previous Trailers/TV Spots from the latter part of the film.
All in all, it was great to watch and I am even more excited to see this action packed film!
