Watch: ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Wants YOU to Join the Earth Space Defense

     May 9, 2016


War. War never changes. When aliens attacked our planet in Roland Emmerich’s 1996 blockbuster hit Independence Day, we puny humans were out-gunned, out-maneuvered, and out-classed in every way until a Hail Mary play secured victory for the Earth. Twenty years later, the united defenses of our home planet have had 20 years to prepare for another extraterrestrial assault; the only problem is, so have the aliens.

With that in mind, 20th Century Fox has released a new video for Independence Day: Resurgence that recruits viewers to join the Earth Space Defense. Led by William Fichtner’s General Adams, this recruitment spot boosts Uncle Sam to the world stage in an attempt to encourage citizens across the globe to join the fight against the eventual alien attack. For the truly courageous of you out there, you can also check out the very real recruitment opportunities for the U.S. Army, which sponsor’s the video.

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.
