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.
