They’re back! 20 years after the original stormed into theaters, a film I still love by the way, ID:R is just around the corner. I am absolutely here for Jeff Goldblum and President Sela friggin’ Ward even if I am still a little sore that Mae Whitman isn’t in it.
The previous film was a special effects marvel and it looks like Resurgence is gearing up to do the same.
In honor of Earth Day, Fox is selling digital copies of the original for $.99, all proceeds go to Earth Day Network.
Check out the official description below and watch the war reignite on June 24!
To help us all defend our planet, this weekend the original INDEPENDENCE DAY (1996) movie will be available for only $0.99 on Google Play, with all of Fox’s net proceeds being donated to Earth Day Network! Get your $0.99 download of ID4 here: http://bitly.com/1qWSDvc.
Fans can also participate in a global #IndependenceDayLive Earth Day Watch Party, starting at 4pm PT tonight, by following#IndependenceDayLive and @IndependenceDay.
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.
