Watch the first trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence and learn what happens to Will Smith's character

StaffRebel Columnist

We always knew they'd come back.

Cult-favourite film Independence Day's long-awaited sequel is coming on June 24, and a trailer for the film just dropped.

The film features plenty of returning actors such as Jeff Goldblum and Bill Paxton. Will Smith, however, will be absent.

On the film's website, there's fake news article titled “World Mourns Col Hillier”.

It reads, “While test piloting the ESD's first alien hybrid fighter, an unknown malfunction causes the untimely death of Col. Hiller. Hiller's valor in the War of '96 made him a beloved global icon whose selfless assault against the alien mothership lead directly to the enemy's defeat. He is survived by his wife Jasmine and his son Dylan.”

It makes sense they'd write Will Smith character out of the story somehow. This one seems to work.

Get rid of some of the cliché one liners and Jeff Goldblum, and then it might be a decent movie.

Yes,I will see it. In May, I will see Marvel’s Captain America Civil War and then X-men Apocplypse. I love all big budget movies. It’s fiction and entertainment. I get enough ‘real life’ following the news.

Globalist propoganda. Same tripe as the school curriculum that tries to teach my kids that they are ‘global citizens’ while attempting to pick a fight with Russian, gut and destroy the entire middle east and parts of Africa and try to ruin the culture of and destabilize every western nation left standing through it all.

All horse shit.

More garbage from the liberal garbage factory

I don’t think a virus will cut it this time.

Will Smith turned the movie down, despite the fact that they desperately wanted him for the sequel.

What do you want exactly?

If we had a Standard Aptitude Test required for Politicians we would have never had to worry about Trudeau … or almost every NDP and Liberal Candidate. I’m sure we might have a few less Conservatives but not enough to worry about.

I Think Will is going to be taking an extended hiatus as he climbs the Dem feeding chain to pursue filling the post 2016 Dem POTUS candidate vacuum..

The only Independence Day we will have is when we rid ourselves of Trudeau.
