To celebrate Earth Day, Fox released the first trailer for "Independence Day: Resurgence," the sequel to 1996 blockbuster hit. Director Roland Emmerich jokingly apologized for destroying Earth so often in his movies, and "Resurgence" is no exception.
Emmerich's comment might have been tongue-in-cheek, but he really does like blowing things up. Entire cities look to be decimated. London Bridge goes falling down. As returning cast member Jeff Goldblum ironically notes, "They like to get the landmarks." That's putting it lightly.
Also returning from the original movie are Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, and Brent Spiner. Meanwhile, Liam Hemsworth, Jessie Usher, and Maika Monroe represent the new generation battling the alien invasion.
"Independence Day: Resurgence" opens in theaters June 24.
