If This 5 Minute Trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence Doesn’t Get You Excited For the Movie, Nothing Will!

I know it worked on me. I guess I might actually see it in theaters now.

The nostalgia is strong with this one. And hey, if we’re lucky, Independence Day: Resurgence might actually be good. We have to hope. And in that hope, maybe we’ll get an OK movie experience. The movie comes out on June 23.

Movie Trailer Friday

I don’t know why this week has resulted in so many new movie trailers. But here’s one for Independence Day: Resurgence! Because why not?

This…does not look good. It looks big and loud and CGI. The great thrill of the first movie was that it showed the real Earth fighting against the aliens. This new, ‘future’ Earth is all fancy technology and CGI advancement. This does not look like Independence Day. This looks like any other space adventure. Poor sequel.

Independence Day 2 Also Has a Trailer

At this rate, we’re all going to have to wait an additional 30 minutes before watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens, because that’s how long it’s going to take to get through the trailers! Every single upcoming movie has one ready for Thursday night. We should develop some kind of bingo game to see who gets the likes of Civil War or Dawn of Justice or Warcraft or Apocalypse or a million others.

For example, here’s the first trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence, which…jeez louise, I don’t even know anymore.

That trailer just…it’s kind of overwhelming. But not in a good way…but also not in a bad way. More of in a way that makes me question where we are as a society. Like, this movie didn’t have to be made, but it is…and it’s clearly trying to be bigger and better than the last one. But the first Independence Day is a classic for a reason. Can this movie even come close? Movies aren’t made the same anymore…
