What's with the name?

Allow us to explain.

Bill Pullman

And All Was Right With the World

Roland Emmerich Says Jeff Goldblum Will Be In the ID4 Sequel, Gives You a Reason to Watch It Whether You Wanted One Or Not

But which other, less-relevant-to-our-interests actors than Jeff Goldblum (just being honest) have and haven’t left their alien-fighting days behind them? Hit the jump to find out.


It Came From Outer Space

Here’s What the Independence Day Sequels (Yes, That’s Sequels, Plural) Will Be About

Director Roland Emmerich knows that the world doesn’t need an Independence Day sequel. It needs two Independence Day sequels. Luckily, he’s all too willing to provide, and he’s given us some info on what ID Forever Part One and ID Forever Part Two (yes, those are their titles. I refuse to say anything good about them, even sarcastically) will be about.

I’m not saying it’s aliens. But it’s aliens.


Fact From the Vapor of Nuance

Bill Pullman Says Independence Day Can Go Without Will Smith; Jurassic Park to Hit 3D Imax… Is it 1993?

Ok, so we all know that Jurassic Park is coming back to theaters in three months, for its (brace yourself) twentieth anniversary? Yes? Good. It’s not the only film that’s looking to cash in on moviegoer nostalgia. On the far side of the “probably going to happen” spectrum is the ever rumored Independence Day 2, which at least one actor thinks will be okay without one of its original stars.


For great justice

This Guy Walked Around NYC Reciting the ID4 Speech — For America [Video]

Funkanomics Comedy sent its own Sean Kleier out into the streets to deliver the triumphant pre-battle speech originally given by Bill Pullman in Independence Day. And like a demented, patriotic evangelist, Kleier hit various locations throughout New York City — the subway and a Subway — to inspire and possibly piss off everyone who never wanted to listen in the first place. But you know what? They were probably ready to fly a plane into a spaceship by the end of the speech. How could you not be?

Now, can he please go around doing the “I’m Afraid, Dave” speech from 2001: A Space Odyssey? That would be nuts.

Almost Totally Excellent

If the US Had Been Founded By the Characters from Independence Day, As Told By Garden Gnome Mr. T

If you’ve ever wondered what Will Smith, Jeff Goldblum, and Bill Pullman would act like as Founding Fathers, now you (kind of) have your answer, courtesy of this video featuring them all as bric-a-brac characters. At one point there are salt-shaker Daleks, and from now on we shall call this day “Exploded British Day.”
