Jack Hall, paleoclimatologist, must make a daring trek from Washington, D.C. to New York City to reach his son, trapped in the cross-hairs of a sudden international storm which plunges the planet into a new Ice Age.
Two decades after the freak alien invasion that nearly destroyed mankind a new threat emerges. This Alien mothership is more than twice the size as the last one and once again, the world's armies must band together to save the world. Do they have enough firepower or will this battle change and will aliens take over?

An extended version of the movie exists and will be released later after its initial theatrical release. Director Roland Emmerich has said: "It's only about seven minutes longer. It's interesting for fans to see which scenes we cut, although I like it when movies are short." A longer special edition of the original Independence Day was also released, which ran almost two-and-a-half hours at 145 minutes with the extended cut running for 154 minutes. See more »
Bad sequel don't watch it (unless you are a Disney Star Wars sucker in that case buy two DVDs!)
Modern Hollywood does not know how to make a good movie and they hire the likes of Jar Jar Abrams to remake everything and make endless sequels. This is another movie that truly destroys its prequel and I will not be surprised if the next Independence day appears in 2022.
