INDEPENDENCE DAY is having the best day ever. Not only did they drop this new commercial for the highly anticipated sequel, INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE, during the big game, they also earned a shout out in a Bud Light ad. Also, star Jeff Goldblum made an appearance in another ad, for apartments.com. So basically the cross-promotion is everywhere, people!
Here’s the official synopsis:
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 defense 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: RESURGENCE opens on June 24.
