It has been twenty years since the blockbuster Independence Day was released. Now once again Earth faces an alien attack and Independence Day: Resurgence is back to deal with it. Independence Day: Resurgence begins with the Earth Space Defense Program that uses technology that was taken from the alien forces when they had previously attacked.
The alien technology along with the military technology has created a warning system that informs beforehand about the advent of extraterrestrial creatures. However, nothing can prepare humanity for the advanced and gigantic force that the aliens will unleash on planet Earth. Given that the aliens are not pleased with the way that they have been treated, the world will be pushed to the brink of extension.
The trailer shows that the aliens that have remained back on Earth had sent a distress signal, which foretells of a huge fleet of aliens coming to rescue them while destroying the complete human race. There is a scene which shows Bill Pullman’s Whitmore being attacked by an alien which grips the presidents throat and declares that someone has arrived.
Patricia the President’s daughter enquires why the alien is screaming to which Brackish Okun (Brent Spiner), a scientist tells her that aren’t screaming. They are celebrating because their species is sending a large battle fleet to destroy humanity. There are images of cities destructed by these aliens. The alien fleet that is shown is larger than the previous ones and is more advanced.
Games Radar has pointed out that one of the best scenes of Independence Day was when Brackish Okun had informed the President that the alien wants the human race to die, it is only right that in Independence Day: Resurgence Okun is the one to give the bad news that the aliens are rejoicing because the backup is approaching.
