Website Wants You to Send Famous Movie Clips Instead of Greeting Cards

As consumers of franchised media, we’re no strangers to stories of rights acquisitions and company mergers, but you don’t expect there to be licensing elements in a story about an eGreeting startup. I’m not so sure about Ditto Greetings in practice, but in concept, there is absolutely a large part of me that wants to send people Bill Pullman‘s Independence Day speech to people whenever it is even remotely relevant to their lives.

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.
