Watch Aliens Smash up London in the New 'Independence Day: Resurgence' Trailer

By Gary Cutlack on at

20th Century Fox has released a new trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence today, giving us another chance to play international landmark destruction bingo. The only loser is whoever got the pyramids in the sweepstake, as London seems to get quite the thorough smashing from the gravity weaponry this time.

There's an awful lot of entirely CG sequences of military bases to enjoy, plus Will Smith appears -- but only as a photograph on his son's wall. For emotional motivation. Other highlights include the Palace of Westminster afire at 2:22, plus Tower Bridge smashed at 2:28. There's no end to the things that can be done in CG for hundreds of millions of dollars.

Not to spoil it or anything, but the hero would appear to fly up and save the day, while Jeff Goldblum offers technical assistance. The trailer's not really a trailer, more edited highlights of the entire film. The few other bits not shown here will be released in cinemas on June 23. [YouTube]
