There's just over two weeks to go until Independence Day: Resurgence hits the big screen and it is promising to be even bigger and more action packed than the first.

Independence Day: Resurgence

Independence Day: Resurgence

Independence Day: Resurgence is on course to be one of the biggest sci-fi movies of the year and a brand new clip for the film has been released.

The movie sees Jeff Goldblum and Charlotte Gainsbourg, who take on the roles of David Levinson and Dr. Catherine Marceaux. Take a look:

Goldblum is reprising the role of Levinson, who he played in the first film a whopping twenty years ago - it really does make me feel very old.

Goldblum is not the only familiar face back as Bill Pullman and Vivica A. Fox are also returning to the roles of President Whitmore and Jasmine... but there are plenty of new names to watch out for.

Gainsbourg is one of the big new additions to the cast list, alongside Liam Hemsworth, William Fichtner, Jessie T. Usher, Maika Monroe, and Sela Ward.

We always knew they were coming back. After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global spectacle on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defence program to protect the planet.

But nothing can prepare us for the aliens' advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.

Independence Day was an enormous box office smash when it was released back in 1996 - going on to gross over $817 million at the global box office. At the time, it was the second highest-grossing film of all time.

Will we see Independence Day: Resurgence repeat that success? I guess we are going to have to wait and see.

Independence Day: Resurgence is released 23rd June.
