A Spoiler-Filled Discussion of ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’
We always knew they were coming back. After all, what epic, era-defining blockbuster doesn’t get a sequel in this day and age? None. And Independence Day truly was one of the biggest movies of the 1990s, both in terms of grosses (it was the top earner of 1996, both home and abroad) and scope, with mile-wide UFOs descending on our planet, wiping out our most treasured landmarks, and trying to eradicate our species.

Rather than tying a bow around the previous two hours of planet-leveling carnage, Resurgence immediately begins teasing another sequel.
‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Extended Trailer
The trend in trailers right now is to make things shorter. Teasers for trailers. Vines for teasers for trailers. Even full-length trailers on YouTube now often start with a five-second tease of the trailer you are about to watch five seconds later.

‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Trailer: Welcome Back to Earth

We know you’re all excited about Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and while many of you purchased your tickets last night, you shouldn’t forget that we still have several movies hitting theaters between now and December 18 — like the final chapter of The Hunger Games franchise, which sees Katniss Everdeen engaging in all-out war with the nefarious President Snow.

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2’ Trailer Targets Snow
It’s taken Katniss Everdeen four films, but she’s finally making her way to the Capitol to confront the nefarious President Snow once and for all…and she’s not alone.

‘The Dressmaker’ Trailer: Kate Winslet Is Armed
When it was first announced, The Dressmaker sounded like a quirky, dark comedy about an incredibly skilled seamstress who returns to her hometown to take revenge on those who wronged her. The first trailer has arrived and proves that assumption is only half-correct — Kate Winslet does indeed play a talented dressmaker, but the revenge she has in mind is more of the good-natured kind.
