Independence Day: Resurgence is a 2016 American science fiction adventure film directed by Roland Emmerich and written by Emmerich, Dean Devlin, Nicolas Wright, James A. Woods and James Vanderbilt. It is the sequel to the 1996 film Independence Day and stars an ensemble cast featuring Liam Hemsworth, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Jessie Usher, Maika Monroe, Sela Ward,Judd Hirsch, Brent Spiner and William Fichtner.
The film is set twenty years after the events of the first film. Since then, the United Nations have collaborated on the Earth Space Defense (ESD), an international military defense and research organization, and developed hybrid technology reverse-engineered from the invaders’ in anticipation that they would return. When the returning aliens again attack Earth with an advanced and unprecedented force during the twentieth anniversary of humanity’s victory against them on July 4, a new generation of defenders from the ESD joins forces with the surviving protagonists from the first film to participate in a battle to save the world from annihilation. In addition, humanity begins to explore their extraterrestrial adversary’s history and motives.
