Yep, it’s happening.

After a mere 20-year gap, the sequel to former highest-grossing film and movie with the cheesiest speech ever, Independence Day Resurgence is coming out next year. Not on the 4th of July, however. Slightly missed opportunity there, guys?

Anyhoo, talking of 4th July, a 30-second teaser was tagged onto IMAX screenings of Terminator Genisys. Unfortunately, there’s been no sign of this trailer being released online yet but from what we’ve managed to gather in the last week, there was no new footage in it. The thing apparently consisted of effects from the original, with Bill Pullman’s cheesiest-speech-ever over the top. Which is kinda fair enough, considering that the film’s still shooting and effects are nowhere near done at this stage.

That hasn’t stopped the social media machine from dropping teasers. The official Twitter account of the movie dropped this:

So, what do you think? Is it time to fight off aliens with a MacBook again? Or should Hollywood just get a fresh idea?

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
