Yeah, we’ve got another Independence Day coming for some reason. Another trailer has dropped. How is it?
Self-referential? Cliched? Half-baked explanations for the total absence of Will Smith? Yup. All that is accounted for. Like the last one, it looks like a lot of ideas and shots taken from other, better movies. See for yourself after the cut.
I’m not ashamed to say, I love Independence Day. But you know what I have never asked for in 20 years? A sequel to Independence Day. But it looks like it is coming whether we want it or not.
After the break, watch the new commercial that aired during the Super Bowl. I really liked the opening shot during the singing of the national anthem, but after that I couldn’t decide if what I was watching was cool or just another excuse for destruction porn?
Not even 2 minutes and 33 seconds? Because that is all you will need for this masterful super cut showcasing the trailers currently available for many of 2016’s upcoming films. Worth a watch after the cut.
2016. Did any of us think we’d live this long? Yeah, probably. We’re Geeks, not morbid.
So, what sort of Geek Entertainment has us here at Gabbing Geek at least a little curious? See behind the cut, with some items getting some expert Geek Commentary from the Geek Guru himself, Jimmy Impossible.
Like many mid-90’s popcorn blockbusters, Independence Day often gets a hard time. I’m not sure why (ok, I get stuff like the “computer virus” being snickered at) but it is a great mindless summer movie, with good characters, effects, acting, etc. But I’m a sucker for things blowing up. So I’ve always liked ID4, but one thing I never felt was required was a sequel.
But 20 years later, as usual, no on listens to me and we have Indepence Day: Resurgence scheduled for release on June 24th, 2016. Remember that Will Smith guy who pretty much carried the film? No one wants to see him anymore. Let’s just bring back Jeff Goldblum from the core stars. Hey, it worked so well for Jurrasic Park! (I’m among the few that liked The Lost World, but that’s my joke and I’m sticking to it.)
You can watch the trailer for this “long awaited” sequel after the break. Let us know what you think. When we watched it in the Gabbing Geek editorial meeting, Ryan and I both felt it struggled to decide if it was an intense action flick or a complete rehash of the original.
