Well, at least they spelled “Resurgence” right…
Next year’s 20-years-later, generally un-asked-for sequel to “Independence Day” will be called “Independence Day Resurgence,” the filmmakers announced Tuesday. It’s not clear what exactly the resurgence is, but I’d imagine it involves aliens who, unlike their 1996 predecessors, are able to outsmart a mid-’90s-era Mac Powerbook.
Will Smith won’t be back, but Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Brent Spiner and Judd Hirsch will be, along with new star Liam Hemsworth. Original director Roland Emmerich is back, too.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, here’s the director’s description:
Emmerich showed an official title graphic and explained the title in light of the storyline: “We call it in the film the War of ’96. It’s like a post-World generation that’s unified, and that’s amazing to see a world come together with a common enemy. That’s a resurgence.”
