Independence Day 3D to Arrive on July 3, 2013 !

Independence Day is returning to theaters on July 3, 2013 with a full 3D post-conversion, 20th Century Fox revealed today.

The original film, released in 1996, starred Will Smith, Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum and Randy Quaid and was directed by Roland Emmerich with a screenplay by Emmerich and Dean Devlin. A loose re-telling of H.G. Wells' "The War of the Worlds," the sci-fi actioner grossed over $800 million worldwide.

Rumors of a sequel have persisted ever since the original film's release, but over the years, nothing solid has materialized. Still, with Men in Black 3 a box office hit 15 fifteen years after the original, ID4's 3D re-release could potentially also serve as way of gauging viewer interest in a second big screen invasion.

The July 3rd release date puts Independence Day 3D up against Universal Pictures' Despicable Me 2.

Well, I'd rather see this then a sequel.

So does this mean there will be 2 Will Smith movies on theaters at the same time? Cool.

OH HELL YES!

I was just thinking to myself that they should release MIB in 3D but this is an even better idea. I went to see titanic in 3D and i have never seen such big queues at the cinema before, i hope that happens for ID4

I'd probably see it again. I'm not expecting great use of 3D though.

I think that for such a Big movie they will get plenty of use for the 3d and they will make it big.

I think this will be good... maybe they bring the second movie direct after this "remake"?

Well they've got time to do a decent conversion, but movies filmed in 3D will always look better than those converted after the fact.

I hope not, dude. 'ID4' doesn't need any sequel.

IMO, they'd just make the sequel just for the sake of making more money. The whole story has been told, it's like if they made a sequel to 'Titanic', it just doesn't make any sense, at least to me. Plus, Will said recently in this interview that he wouldn't be part of it:

I think re-releasing the movie in theaters in 3D is the best thing they could do. Edited by Ale

I love this idea. It makes perfect sense! It's a modern day classic and it's the movie that defined "WILL SMITH, THE ACTOR." I remember seeing the midnight showing back in 1996. I'd definetly see it again. No question about it!

...and as I've said for years, there's no reason to make a sequel. There's no relevant way to revisit these characters and have them be attacked by aliens AGAIN.
