Bill Pullman won't be able to be president 25 years later.
So Will Smith will be president.
I won't judge if I'm for it or against it until I see a trailer. Couldn't be any worse than the shit they are pumping out lately.
An in-universe movie could probably be pretty good. Especially if they pace it well and show how humanity recovered etc.
What's going to ruin things is that they're going to try and tie it into the original movie was too much and it'll just come off a shit. They'll probably be some other invasion/battle on July 4th so the name gets tied in. I bet all us humans will be shocked once we realize that they've developed anti-virus technology in a week. And since ID4 has some great explosions you know a rebuilt city or two is gonna be blown up before a final battle to decide the fate of New New York.
The concept would work better if they just did something unrelated but nooooo, gotta go for the brand recognition.
But i thought we wiped out there whole race?
This franchise will not go quietly into the night. It will not vanish without a fight.
I'm sure that if there's one thing that would eliminate the term limit amendment, it would be "dude who saved us from an alien invasion." Or maybe Pullman becomes an elder statesman promoting harmony throughout the world. I can't see Smith's character becoming President. He wouldn't sit behind a desk and make decisions. He's a fighter. But maybe Goldblum, perhaps? Some nice knish during the inauguration luncheon. Some nice mandelbread for dessert.
lock it up
Why do we have to do it? You're the mod.
Oh Literal Queer
They didn't box themselves in with any hard info on the aliens. They could have just been the expeditionary force. Next up could be a lightly armed but still seriously dangerous colonist/worker force.
Would they try and "negotiate"?
I would almost like to see a movie that treats the bad guy as smart enough not to act like a bad guy.
By chance, have you seen the movie?
Umm the expeditionary force were the aliens from Roswell......... And if the aliens had all those decades to raid other planets....why didn't they upgrade their technology?...I mean I think they alluded to the fact that most of our advances in Tech came from reverse engineering from the crashed UFO.
I hate Burton, but I always preferred Mars Attacks to Independence Day
Jack Black ruined that film for me.
He said in the article that there is going to be a slight bump in the aliens, but there is a time differential because of space travel. Twenty years for us, just a few months for them.
Soooo they are space retards?
Sooooo they have FTL? nahhhhh no plot holes there. Or do I have the wrong theory of physics?
The Roswell mission would be a scouting party to assess resources and defensive ability. Expeditionary force would be any large scale force outfitted to fight abroad.
Like the Livingstone Expedition or The Lewis and Clark Expedition pray tell?
The Cortes Expedition.
Google "expeditionary force". The emphasis is on "force".
Google "Scouting Expedition" and "Invasion"
"Welcome BACK to earf!"
"My David saved you all last time and you ignore him now? Oh look, a penny."
Who doesn't want to see that?
Donner Expedition, Lewis and Clark Expedition.
