It looks like Fox is set to give Independence Day another run in cinemas this month, 20 years later and ahead of its first sequel. Both movies will be screened together. According to a press release, the event will take place only on Thursday, June 23rd, probably as a way to help kick off the weekend box office.
Tickets are on sale via Movie Tickets and Fandango. Here’s the official synopsis:
We always knew they were coming back. After ‘Independence Day’ redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle 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.
Independence Day: Resurgence opens June 24th and stars Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Maika Monroe, Jessie Usher, William Fichtner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Travis Tope, Sela Ward, Brent Spiner, Vivica A. Fox, and Angelababy.
