It’s been a long time coming, but we’re finally getting a sequel to 1996’s popular alien-disaster movie Independence Day, with stars Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Bill Pullman, Judd Hirsch, and Brent Spiner all reprising their roles.
Goldblum, the Jurassic Park star who last year participated in one of those popular Dinosaur Chase wedding photos, recently joined Facebook, with his inaugural post being a photo of himself on set of Independence Day: Resurgence with co-star Liam Hemsworth providing a nice photobomb.
Check out the photo here below.
Here’s what Goldblum posted on his first day officially on Facebook on July 2, 2015:
So there I was thinking about how I would save mankind when this guy photobombs me. Oh, why hello Facebook, nice to finally meet you.
#IDR — with Liam Hemsworth.
Check out the previously released set photos here.
While there were discussions to bring back mega-star Will Smith, in the end talks fell through, as the Fresh Prince was reportedly “too expensive” cast. Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth will take the lead this time around.
Along with the aforementioned returning cast members, IDR also stars Liam Hemsworth, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Joey King and William Fichtner, with director Roland Emmerich also back at the helm. The sequel is scheduled to hit theaters on June 24, 2016.
We always knew they were coming back. After INDEPENDENCE DAY redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter 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.
