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


Recommended Posts

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.

If they bring this story what Emmerich and his writer made for... why not. Smith as General wuild be great :D

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.

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.
