Independence Day: Resurgence (Film and Score)

Recommended Posts

This has been happening for a decade, so it's not exactly breaking news. They've finally started moving forward with it, though, and they have Bill Pullman on board, but not Will Smith, although it's likely he will do it anyway.

And they do have have some story details. And probably a release date (2016 ultimately).

20 years later? Pullman isn't the president anymore.

Maybe the US got rid of term limits after the alien invasion. Or Pullman served a term in 1996, took a break, then ran for office again in 2016. Either way, like other "former Presidents," he would keep the title for the rest of his life. Jimmy Carter is still "President Carter" and George Bush is still "President Bush," etc.

I'm sorry, for a minute there I thought you were referring to Battlefield Earth when you said "worst film ever". :whistle:

Shh. There is a second half of the book to film. It could happen.

I'm not getting my hopes up Arnold will return for the sequels. Hollywood wants to stay away as far as possible from the first film's sound. Heroic fanfares and themes you can whistle or hum? :shakehead:

I've watched ID4 a dozen times if not more and I still love it today.

Dumb as it may be, the movie has heart, spectacle, some fun character interactions and truly stunning miniature effects shots.

Not to mention an excellent sound mix, which is a true test for any HT setup.

It remains of my most-loved blockbusters of all time. Here's hoping the sequels will bring back the old formula which worked back then and not be more generic CGI overload extravaganzas, like I've seen too many times already.

We, Um, never met Dr. What's his name's family in ID4. So he could have an identical twin. Or it could be a flashback. Or it's OH FOR GOD'S SAKE it's been twenty years, you're gonna make a sequel? The kids who saw it in the theater have kids in grade school.
