Twenty years since the events of ID4 (aka Independence Day), humanity has been preparing for an inevitable return of the malevolent extra-terrestrial race that nearly decimated our world in 1996. United by their brush with annihilation, nations around the world worked together as one people to rebuild what was lost – and establish agencies to plan for future attacks. As director of the Earth Space Defense program, MIT graduate-turned-cable technician-turned world-saving computer hacker, David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum), utilized crashed alien ships and systems to develop new weapons, detection systems, and defensive measures for protecting Earth from outside threats. Independence Day: Resurgence, a sequel to the 1996 box-office hit. Jake Morrison (Liam Hemsworth), Dylan Hiller (Jessie T. Usher), President Whitmore (Bill Pullman), and Julius Levinson (Judd Hirsch) all played in this fantastic movie.
