After twenty long years, a sequel to 1996’s Independence Day is set to arrive in theaters in just a few days.
Some familiar faces from the original movie have returned for the sequel, which is titled Independence Day: Resurgence, including Dr. Brackish Okun (played by Brent Spiner). There’s only one fairly large problem with that: most people watching ID4 back in ’96, myself included, thought that Dr. Okun met a most unpleasant demise after being used as a human ventriloquist puppet by one of the aliens. But as we’ve seen in the various trailers and TV spots for the movie, there he is, alive and well!
But instead of making you wait to actually see the movie to find out how that’s possible, 20th Century Fox has released a new video that actually explains what happened to Dr. Okun. You can check it out below.
Of all the days to drop a trailer, 20th Century Fox decided today, Earth Day, a day to celebrate Mother Earth, to drop the newest trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence. It was 20 years ago since the first film was released, where aliens nearly annihilated the world with their destructive force. Since their defeat, humans have been able to adapt their technology to modify their own military forces. However, the aliens they defeated were only the welcoming committee, as they have returned with an even more powerful weapon than the one they had unleashed on us two decades ago.
Roland Emmerich returns to his directing post. Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, and Brent Spiner are also back to reprise their respective roles. They will all be joined by newcomers Liam Hemsworth, Maika Monroe, and Jessie Usher. Check out the newest trailer here below.
In 1996, an alien armada attempted to destroy humanity in order to gain access to the precious natural resources that it needed to survive. Fortunately for mankind, a scientist and his eccentric father stumbled upon a way to temporarily bring down the defenses of this significantly more advanced race. Falling back on Morse code as a means to communicate with other military units across the globe, a plan was hatched to destroy the aliens’ shields and go on the offensive. Through determination and sheer luck, they won the day.
This series picks up right at the end of Independence Day and will be bridging the gap between that film and the upcoming sequelIndependence Day: Resurgence, due out this June! So, without further ado, I present to you Independence Day #1 from Titan Comics!
This year marked the 50th Super Bowl game, and while the lead-up to this event wasn’t as exciting as last year (which, amongst other things, saw the epic charity face-off between Chris Pratt and Chris Evans, aka Star-Lord and Captain America), there was, as usual, plenty of interesting and highly anticipated Super Bowl commercials that pertained to movies and television that were aired during the Big Game as well as during the pre-Game, Halftime, and post-Game shows that we covered throughout Sunday evening.
But, there’s still a lot more ad offerings that we didn’t get to post from Super Bowl 50 — which saw the Peyton Manning-led Denver Broncos go up against Carolina Panthers (the team Michael Oher, whose life was depicted in The Blind Side, plays for) in Santa Clara, CA, at Levi’s Stadium, which the home of the San Francisco 49ers. So we’ve collected a bunch of these Super Bowl ads here below for your enjoyment, since there was plenty of new TV and movie footage revealed, and of course, those clever and celebrity-filled product commercials.
Not every commercial is included, as some didn’t pertain to our type of entertainment and some I just didn’t enjoy or care about. Instead, I’ve embedded most of the movie and TV spots, along with my favorites from all those car and soda-type adverts, most of which feature celebrities.
