| Not as bad as many say but yea set your sights low!
Not as bad as many say but yea set your sights low! I loved the original. This one was missing some of the great acting but I still liked the action and Sci Fi. Goldblum is hard to dislike in any movie. He helps save this from a total bomb. I bought a cheap copy on Ebay and will keep it avail for a double feature come 4th each year.

In Japan, the American teaser movie poster featuring the Statue of Liberty getting attacked by the alien spaceship was replaced with RX-0 Unicorn Gundam from the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn universe with it retaliating against the alien mother ship. The Anime News Network website reports "although the two works might seem unrelated, they are both science-fiction action spectacles that revive dormant but beloved franchises. Gundam Unicorn also involves independence - this is the aim of Zeon in its war against the Earth Federation. Harutoshi Fukui, the writer of the original Gundam Unicorn novel, explained the similarities further. 'Our two works are connected like soul brothers by the theme of humanity's indomitable spirit pushing despair aside. The enemy this time may be reeeeally big, but humans won't lose! The Unicorn Gundam will help too! (In our hearts.)'."

Crazy Credits

Dedicated to actor Robert Loggia, who died in 2015.

Alternate Versions

An extended version of the movie exists and will be released later after its initial theatrical release. Director Roland Emmerich has said: "It's only about seven minutes longer. It's interesting for fans to see which scenes we cut, although I like it when movies are short." A longer special edition of the original Independence Day (1996) was also released, which ran almost two-and-a-half hours at 145 minutes with the extended cut running for 154 minutes.
