When Godzilla roamed the lands we heard the cry “Destroy All Monsters!”, now in 2016 the cry we hear is “Destroy All Landmarks!” As Independence Day: Resurgence unveils new posters. Harking back to original 1996 these new posters show our alien invaders when they come back they will attack globally.What better way to do it creating posters with symbolic landmarks from the main cities of the world. Hollywood may want you to believe only Stateside extraterrestrials will invade worldwide as they want vengeance!
We always knew they were coming back. After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ delivers global spectacle on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.
