I’m sure people take the piss out of the over the top ‘US saves the day..again’ theme of Independence Day but I had a heck of time watching this with mates at the cinema, back in the day. To me this wasn’t a sci-fi flick or even an alien invasion flick but a good old fashioned disaster movie with a bucket load of obvious tropes all wrapped up in the american flag.
When it was announced there were plans for a sequel I remember thinking ‘yeah like that is ever going to happen’…and in typical fashion I was completely wrong. Not only have they started making the sequel but to rub my nose in it they’ve gone and set up a live Q & A stream to brag about it…the gits!
We are promised a special treat during the Q & A which I’m hoping will be a first look at the film. I’m wondering what the world of the sequel will look like given the fact a good chuck of planet earth got roasted in the first film.
Of course the big questions for the sequel…will they have rebuilt the White House? Have the aliens installed better virus checkers? How’s Mr Pres going to top that speech and where the heck is Will ‘Welcome to Earth’ Smith?
Well watch the stream to hopefully get a few answers.
