Independence Day: Resurgence gets new five-minute extended trailer


After watching the first trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence, we weren't sure there could be much more destruction. We were wrong.

A five-minute trailer shared by 20th Century Fox continues the theme started 20 years ago in the original film, when aliens invade the Earth and apocalyptic mayhem ensues. The tension, which in moments of the trailer builds quickly, is often just as swiftly dispelled by a moment of humour - usually when Jeff Goldblum is around.

Will Smith's character led the charge in the original 1996 film, and his wife and son are involved in Resurgence, as seen in the trailer.

Also starring are Liam Hemsworth and Charlotte Gainsbourg, as well as Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner and Sela Ward. Roland Emmerich is directing once again.

Independence Day: Resurgence, is due to be released on June 24.
