Movie Summary[]


Two decades after the first Independence Day invasion, Earth is faced with a new extra-Solar threat. But will mankind's new space defenses be enough?


As the Fourth of July nears, satellite engineer David Levinson investigates a 3,000-mile-wide mothership that's approaching Earth. Fortunately, 20 years earlier, nations across the world started to use recovered extraterrestrial technology to develop an immense defense program. When the alien invaders attack with unprecedented force, the U.S. president, teams of scientists and brave fighter pilots spring into action to save the planet from a seemingly invincible enemy.

And so, feeling like we're doing something worthwhile here for other people, at least even just as a means of escape, rather than just three guys circlejerking around nonsense about Independence Day: Resurgence or some crap, um…
Stuart: Although the—
Dan: Is that what we watched tonight?
Elliott: Help me out. All Dan could see was the election returns rolling over his eyes, over and over again. He did not see the thousands of alien ships blasting each other to pieces.
Elliott: You're saying "titular" a lot.
Stuart: Yeah. You're saying it weird, dude.
