“We’ve got to remind them Earth is not for the taking,” declares Dylan Hiller (Jesse Usher), the son of Will Smith’s Steve Hiller in a new extended trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence. The “them” here, of course, are the aliens who’ve returned for another assault on our home planet.
The nearly five-minute sneak peek at the upcoming blockbuster is packed with explosive footage of the next war for mankind’s survival.
Roland Emmerich is back in the director’s chair for the Smith-less sequel, which also sees the return of Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, and Vivica A. Fox. Liam Hemsworth leads the film’s newcomer cast, alongside Maika Monroe, Joey King, and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
Independence Day: Resurgence opens in theaters on June 23. Watch the extended trailer above.
