Independence Day 2 Pre-release thread

post #1 of 117
Thread Starter 
A July 4 2015 release date just announced.

Will Smiff unlikely to return...too busy with his son's career...oh and because ID4 2 is an ensemble and he doesn't play second fiddle to anyone anymore....except his son of course.

Anyway 2015 summer lineup will probably be the implosion of the movie business Spielberg recently predicted:

ID4 2
Avengers 2
Star Wars 7
Pirates 5
Hunger Games 2
Ant Man
Man of Steel 2
Finding Dory
Jurassic Park 4

KABOOM!

YES!

 

The sequel I wanted 15 years ago!

 

But seriously, I'm kind of curious. 

 

And I wouldn't rule Smith out yet. He kinda needs a surefire sci-fi blockbuster after the After Earth debacle. And who says his son won't play the little kid who wasn't his son in the first movie. And Jeff Goldblum hasn't been in a science-fiction movie in forever!

The only way I'll see this movie is if the synopsis begins, "After beginning his unprecedented fifth term, President Thomas J. Whitmore..."

post #4 of 117

Betcha Jaden is in this as his son.

The only way I'll see this movie is if they actually fucking make it.

I can't wait for Jeff Goldblum to bring down the global alien threat with his iPad mini.

Hes got Bad Boys 2, MIB4, and Hancock 2 in development...hes not worried about his career.

Bad Boys 2 is in development? I must be from the future.

I hate Independence Day. However, I will see the sequel if it contains the following:

 

-Will Smith punches an alien and then says "Welcome back!"

 

-Will Smith's son runs up and kicks said alien in the ribs (?) after Will punches it out.

 

-Randy Quaid's character is cloned.

 

-Bill Pullman insists everyone call him Lone Starr.

 

-Toto does the soundtrack, Dune-style.

post #12 of 117

I think all that and more is pretty much guaranteed.

Mike J, you hate Independence Day?!

Heresy!

President Lone Starr returns or no deal.

Pullman is returning.
post #16 of 117
President Whitmore fans, rejoice: Bill Pullman is the only cast member that Huffington Post could confirm so far. When Pullman was reached by Crave Online earlier this year, even Smith wasn't confirmed yet.

Collider is reporting that Smith is certainly out, but as we've recently seen with Downey and the Avengers films, this could be haggling over salary conducted through the press.

Now I'm a little excited.

 

(Not really.)

BOOMER must return.  He's all that matters.

Visual storytelling at its absolute zenith.

post #20 of 117

I'll be there opening night if they can somehow get Brent Spiner in this as Dr. Okun again.  Clone him or whatever, I don't care.

I don't really care for Roland Emmerich. The guy calls himself "Little Spielberg" for Christ's sake. And I was pretty disgusted when he and Dean Devlin talked about the "deeper meaning" Independence Day took after 9/11 happened. It's a sub-par Star Wars/ War of the Worlds knock-off with some entertaining performances and special effects. There's also a dog outrunning an explosion. Poor Mary McDonnell is confined to a stretcher for most of the film but the dog? Absolutely bad-ass!

What assholes.

Here is a list of things I'm excited about when it comes to this sequel of a Will Smith movie which happened seventeen years ago:

This is set 20 years later. The kid in the first one was about 6 or 7, which would make him 27. Jaden is 14...unless he had another bastard kid, it wont work.
post #25 of 117
Will Smith's going to be president in this, right? I mean he's gotta be.

And Assassin's Creed (with Arab Fassbender). Although that may end up being Centurion small rather than Gladiator big.

Also, The Fantastic Four reboot reboot.

Those movies in Ambler's list are all coming out on the same day, right?

Yes. On the day that Steven Spielberg shouts "Goodbye cruel world!" and leaps from the top of the Hollywood Rip Ride Rocket at Universal Studios.

Why do people want Pullman back when I have a strange feeling they will probably kill him off?

Because he'll have an awesome death scene where he rides a fighter jet straight into the face of the massive alien General Kr'ozogth?

Duh.
post #31 of 117
And he'll give a baller pep talk while he does it.
post #32 of 117
I hope the aliens invade on Talk Like a Pirate Day just to fuck with us.

A dog outjumps a fireball. I think a 14 year old can play a 27 year old and no one will notice.

Cause he will probably be killed off in real life if he doesn't come back. Man needs work!

Boomer Jr. will be First Dog, right?
post #35 of 117

A teenage Japanese kid wrote Bob Gale a letter in the 80s after he'd seen Back to the Future, saying the letter Marty writes to Doc in the cafe had an error in it.

Somebody always notices.
post #37 of 117

Mcnooj will notice.

post #38 of 117
Will the characters constantly remind each other that they live in a "post-ID4" world?

He's playing Will Smith's 14-27 year old son.

Different Nolanverse, nooj.
post #42 of 117
As with all decades-later unnecessary sequels, the characters will constantly remind each other about crowd pleasing shit from the last movie.
post #43 of 117
I thought this movie already was made? Or did I dream a mash up of Battle Los Angeles and Olympus Has Fallen again?

Honestly who really wants to see this movie? It'll be a huge disaster, that will shame everyone!

No the right Alien invasion movie from the nineties to have a sequel would be Mars Attacks!
post #44 of 117

They should add Idris Elba to the cast, as Will Smith's estranged but really awesome brother. And then half of the internet will declare this sequel "the bestest thing evar!!!"

post #45 of 117
As long as Michael Fassbender is Boomer Jr.
post #46 of 117
Oh and add Nathan Fillion and Micheal Fassbender some where in the cast doing something and stuff than the Internet will be happy!

Fuck I can't even summon any excitement for the crap. I like the first one just fine but a sequel leaves me with a felling of just "meh." It's maybe the most boring idea I can think of so thus it will make a billion dollars! Society is so screwed!


Edit: Bradito! you beat me too it! Great casting! Who would Fillion be in this! Oh guess Jennifer Lawerence would be love interest cause everyone love Jlaw! Oh and have Anne Hathaway be a alien drone masquerading as a human as the main villian because Hathaway is so hateable!
post #47 of 117
I would have been happy with just ninety minutes of Brent Spiner getting the shit strangled out of him by another alien.

But now that you mention it, everyone does love JLaw.

I now demand the casting of JLaw as the film's plucky heroine, archery optional.

Sold.

 

Although in this movie universe, he's the president who saved the fucking planet from aliens. You have to be pretty well off to be president anyway but he's got to be now treated like a god for the rest of his life. Half of the movie could be nothing but him and Goldblum celebrating their victory with cocaine and hookers every day and I don't think I would mind. That's how I like to picture both of them in real life anyway.   

post #49 of 117
Yeah, speaking of, they better damn well get Jeff Goldblum back. A movie without Jeff Goldblum is like a day without sunshine.

Sure why not it isn't like he's doing anything right now.

I have to thank this announcement for happening. I really needed there to be a pointless film to be announced that would fill me with less excitement than Episode VII and this did it. cheers!
