We were fully expecting to see the first Independence Day: Resurgence trailer debut before Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Thursday, but it looks like 20th Century Fox just couldn’t wait, as the company has released the trailer online.
And, interestingly enough, it looks like a solid sci-fi action movie, not what we were expecting at all. In fact, if the trailer is any indication, it looks like the upcoming sci-fi sequel will take a slightly more serious tone.
The film will star Liam Hemsworth, Joey King, and Maike Monroe, with Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox and Bill Bullman all returning.

Of course, an Independence Day without Will Smith is going to be a tough pill to swallow. A “welcome to Earth”-esque line just wouldn’t feel right coming from any other actor young actor. But, the sequel looks to be heading in the right direction, and the first Independence Day: Resurgence trailer has piqued our interest.
The Independence Day: Resurgence release date has been set for June 24, 2016.
