"Independence Day 2" Poster and Plot Synopsis RevealedSubmit Comment
At the Licensing Expo is a promo poster for the upcoming "Independence Day" sequel. Collider was able to take a photo of it and we now have it here for you. Check out the poster below, in addition to the official plot synopsis.

Plot: After "Independence Day" redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens' advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.

The new movie is directed by Roland Emmerich (Independence Day) and stars Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Liam Hemsworth, Jessie Usher, Joey King, Sela Ward, Vivica A. Fox, William Fichtner, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Judd Hirsch. It's set to hit theaters on June 24th, 2016.

So how is this Independence Day 2 when it's just another humans versus aliens blow em up sci-fi spectacle? Does it occur on July 4th, again?

"After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre..."

No. It didn't. It was one of those blockbuster fillers of the 90s -- in-between real genre game changers like Star Wars, T2, Jurassic Park, The Matrix, LOTR etc. -- that certainly had its pop-moment in the sun but was soon forgotten before the decade was even up.

And I love how the plot for the upcoming sequel is literally just: repeat.

Seriously, f*ck this movie.

"And I love how the plot for the upcoming sequel is literally just: repeat."

Just like Jurassic World and Avengers 2. But FOX (and even more so Universal) is desperate for big-budget franchises. They should buy Image Comics and make some movies based on that garbage.

Anyway, the image above looks like

"No. It didn't"

Not true. The movie appeared on the cover of Time magazine and was widely hailed for reviving cinematic science fiction. It was the highest grossing movie of 1996 and was, in a big way, the Aliens of the 1990s. It was given a pre-release viewing for the Clintons, which was and still is a rare event, and it led to the NFL changing their Super Bowl commercial line-up. Not to mention the massive and exceptional marketing campaign Ebert labled "brilliant", which is high praise coming from him.

That's all just hype and commercialism ...of that summer movie season.

The question is whether or not it went on to be regarded as a classic and redefinition of the genre, as did the other titles mentioned .

The answer is no.
ᴉʞsʍoʞuᴉɯ writes:

It was technically a redefintion of the event movie genre for the reasons, and more, that I cited.
ᴉʞsʍoʞuᴉɯ writes:

The very nature of event movies is their pop-cultural commercialism. So I'm not sure what you're talking about, per usual.

Not like someone said ID redefined big-budget science fiction or something.
Cannon writes:
on June 10th, 2015 at 12:22:28 PM

Except, it didn't reinvent anything about big event blockbusters. Everything you cited ...it was just more of the same commercial hype prosperity staged by numerous blockbuster movies prior.

It didn't reinvent or redefine the movie culture of big summer blockbusters; the studio mentality, how such event films were marketed or how audiences perceived them up to that point.

No one said "reinvent". They said "redefined". And it did redefine the event movie genre

"to reexamine or reevaluate especially with a view to change"

Yeah, I'd say it "redefined" the commercial summer tentpole (i.e., movie event) genre. Not really sure how one could say it didn't, given the relevant facts. Pretty low bar compared to "reinvent".

I'mnot paying to see it. Maybe The Martian, maybe, but definitely not this sh*t.
Cannon writes:
on June 10th, 2015 at 12:41:47 PM

Well, it wasn't the first big blockbuster screened at the White House nor the first to be noted for its clever/ambitious marketing campaign.

It was the first to be advertised during the Super Bowl, I'll give you that one.

ᴉʞsʍoʞuᴉɯ writes:
on June 10th, 2015 at 12:43:30 PM

Reinvent: change (something) so much that it appears to be entirely new.

Yeah, that's NOT what anyone said.
ᴉʞsʍoʞuᴉɯ writes:
on June 10th, 2015 at 12:45:28 PM

It changed the event movie genre, it did not recreate it into something new. No one said that.

But it's wasn't just some big moneymaking nothing pitstop on the way to better summer tentpole films that year, either.

Now if someone had said the same thing about Lost in Space, or Soldier, or Stargate, I'd agree.

Apple should jump in on this. The hype would be off the charts, like last time.
