That ID4 Sequel You Never Asked For Now Has A Trailer

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!

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.

OK, so, how about I say what I thought.  SPOILERS for last summer’s biggest box office hit after the cut.

The guys are at it again over at Screen Junkies – this time they tell us just how bad The Lost World: Jurassic Park actually was. Did we need an honest trailer to tell us that? I think not – but either way it’s pretty funny. And I think we can all agree that a little Goldblum really does go along way 2 Jurassic 2 Furious!… (see trailer after the break).
