Independence Day: Resurgence – Trailer and Viral Website

Along with the new trailer that was released yesterday, 20th Century Fox have released a viral website and video (voiced by Jeff Goldblum) ‘The War of 1996’ for Independence Day: Resurgence, watch it below…

If like me you’re wondering what happened to Will Smith’s character from the original film, interactive timeline shows that in 2007 Smith’s Col. Steven Hiller was killed while “test piloting the ESD’s first alien hybrid fighter.” It also states “Hiller’s valor in the War of ‘96 made him a beloved global icon whose selfless assault against the alien mothership led directly to the enemy’s defeat. He is survived by his wife Jasmine and son Dylan.”

The official synopsis for the film is:

“We always knew they were coming back.  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.”
