Plot’s it all about?

As newcomer Liam Hemsworth rightly says in the latest trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence, “I can’t believe it’s been 20 years.”

Two decades on from the landmark-destroying, alien face-punching, Randy Quaid-hollering original, Roland Emmerich returns with his follow-up to 1996’s Independence Day.

This time around, Earth is faced with a new extra-terrestrial threat, but will Jeff Goldblum and his laptop with Windows ’95 be able to save the world once again? We’ll just have to wait and see.

Starring: Jeff Goldblum, what more do you need to know? Well, it also stars Will Smith Liam Hemsworth, Bill Pullman, Jessie Usher, Vivica A. Fox and lots and lots of angry aliens.

Directed by: Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, Universal Soldier, The Day After Tomorrow)

Irish and UK release date: 23 June 2016
