Still one of the best speeches from a movie. Might not have Will Smith in it, but at least the Goldblum is in it!

Not sure how I feel about this. Don't think it could live up to the original. Hope they don't just pepper with over reaching CGI.

While I absolutely love the original Independence Day, I'll also be the first to admit that it's the very embodiment of the typical 90's summer action flick. Heavy CGI, generic stereotypes in place of proper characters or character development, big explosions, uplifting ending, etc. Think of what else came out during that decade: The Rock, Con Air, T2, Die Hard, Starship Troopers, Goldeneye, Bad Boys, Jurassic Park and other such type of films. Those were all fantastic films, but if you really think about it, they all tended to (mostly) follow the same basic formula.

I think nostalgia will play into many of our minds about how this new one should be, and how it shouldn't focus on heavy CGI or that the alien ships are too large or whatever other complaint we can think of. The truth of the matter is that the original film did make use of heavy CGI, it did use unknown or non A-list actors, it did feature the largest alien ships on screen up to that point, it did have a very formulaic plot and instead favoured explosions and effects.

Just something to keep in mind.

Also, forgot about this video. Watched it a couple months ago and it states pretty much the same thing, just in a slightly more amusing style.

Will Smith killed his character when he demanded sole starring role/focus & over $50 million to shoot 2 sequels to ID4, studio laughed and walked away.

Loved the original but Lomac nailed it. Typical 90's action flick with all the stereotypes and plot formulas you'd expect. So everyone from the original that didn't make it as big as Will Smith is back for another go? Haha!

Turn brain off + lower expectations = pure entertainment

Me and my buddies rewatched the first one recently and made a drinking rule where whenever an Alien thing comes out, we had to take a sip. We got plastered like halfway in the movie LOL.

my worst guess is that they don't want to get lost in this crowd:

Still looks awesome! Will see it in theatre for sure. Love the returning cast members.

I remember the audience standing and cheering for the dog scene in the original. Easily one the best theatrical experiences I've had. So much fun!
