Independence Day

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

    Elsewhere on the internet

    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.

  4. Happy Fourth of July! Here’s Bill Pullman’s Speech From Independence Day [Video]

    Welcome ta Earf. We've got fireworks!

    For the fine folks from the United States, it's that time of the year where we set off a bunch of fireworks, drink way too much, grill meat, and watch Independence Day. That's not exactly the plan for everybody, but it's a pretty good guideline. Sure, Independence Day is all about fighting aliens on a global scale, but Bill Pullman's speech as the President of the United States just before the final assault in that movie is as good a speech as any to celebrate with on the Fourth of July.

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

    It Came From Outer Space

    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

    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.

  9. Sequels to Independence Day Now Have Names, Are Depressing

    Remember Independence Day, the plucky action flick that paired the lovable Will Smith with the amusingly cynical Jeff Goldblum back in 1996? Well, there are two sequels in development for the franchise. Not one, but two. If this still leaves you with a glimmer of hope that they'll defy the odds and somehow turn out amazing, the titles that have been attached to the duo should stamp that thought out quickly. Hint: They're not good.
